Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Freeze/Cold/Ice.

~~~~~~~~~~

From the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, R&B boy band, New Edition  formed in 1978. The group reached its height of popularity in the 1980s. One of their early hits, 1984’s Cool It Now, the first single from their eponymous second album, New Edition, was the group’s first top 10 pop single, peaking at number four on the pop chart, and their second number one R&B hit.

FUN FACTS:

  • During the group’s first experience with fame in 1983, its members were Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe and Ralph Tresvant.
  • Brown was voted out of the group in 1985 (and went on to a successful solo career–and married mega-diva, Whitney Houston), and Johnny Gill was added.
  • The group line-up would change often over the next quarter century, with Brown returning–and leaving, and even Michael Bivins leaving for a short time before New Edition became a six-member group.
  • The group received their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 23, 2017. On January 24, 2017, a three-part docuseries, The New Edition Story, premiered on BET about the group’s career and personal life. It was later announced that all six members will reunite to record another album and go on tour.

The video is typical 80s but cute because they are CHILDREN. Keep in mind these guys are now in their FIFTIES!

Enjoy!

  1. First time hearing this song. The lead singer’s voice is way higher than what he looks like he should be singing. It’s a nice mellow tune with a cute video that reminds me of a time gone by…
