1987 was a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time ago.

Well...for some people it was. LOL

I bring up 1987 b/c I was having a convo on twitter with Pigskin Loving Lady and she mentioned that she graduated from high school in 1987. I advised her that I ENTERED high school in 1987!
So, after a few jokes. I began to try to remember what THE JAM was in 1987. I couldn't remember. Shoot, I have a hard time remembering what I did yesterday. I definitely don't remember '87. But it got me to thinking about the year that I graduated from high school...1991. I began to wonder about the music that I listened to back then.

Still couldn't remember. So I decided to look it up. Wanna know what my favorite cds that were released in 1991???

In no particular order, I'll give you my fav 4 cds/tapes/albums that dropped in 1991.

Boys II Men

singing group from Philly who was founded by New Edition member Michael Bivins

hits- Motownphilly, It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday, Uhhh Ahhh, Please Don't Go, End of the Road

A Tribe Called Quest
Low End Theory

a hip hop classic.

hits- Check the Rhyme, Jazz (We've Got), Scenario, Buggin Out
Ice Cube
Death Certificate

critically acclaimed music for one of the hip hop pioneers on the West Coast

hits- Steady Mobbin, True to the Game, Us, No Vaseline
Michael Jackson

anutha gem by the G.O.A.T (greatest of all time)

hits- Black or White, Remember the Time, In the Closet, Jam, Heal the World
I'll admit that I didn't know that these all came out in '91. I used Wikipedia to find out the music that dropped in '91.

What about you? What was the music that dropped the year that you graduated from high school?
