If your love is strong, gonna give my all to you

102. Ghost Town DJs - "My Boo" (So So Def, 1996)

Inspired by Mariah's amazing new "H.A.T.E.U." remix featuring Gucci, Big Boi, and OJ, here's a song I hadn't heard in years until today. This is definitely a So So Def summer jam, but we'll have to make due with it in October.The "at night I think of you..." chorus is one of the great longing R&B hooks of the 90s, and the skittering high hats and twinkly keyboard solo make this song a junior high classic. It's a fine, scientific conclusion to the second third of this list.

(full song here, but had to post the video for full beach party and JD as volleyball ref vibes)
