One minute he is giving Babes Wodumo the slap of the century, and the next he fails to cross into 2023.  The human condition.  RIP Mampintsha.

Inazo was their best hit IMO.

Very, very sad. Life is but vapor bro. Pele, Kasavuli, the Pope and several more all went during that last week of December. Once you start seeing one's contemporaries dropping like flies it puts everything in perspective. This year has been a sobering one for me.

Good one. My faves (from best downwards)

Hawaii

Umlilo never gets old, boss

Summertime. Tira's helicopter ride over Debehn really inspired me to travel back in the 2000's when I first watched this video

Amabenjamin. Those signature grunts to the beat never get old  :roll:


Sondela (starting minute 2:40). Still looking for the full video - seems like it was a remix.

RIP Nuz.

Good ones.  Hawaii and Umlilo especially hit the spot for me.  It's easy to forget how they were an institution while they lasted.  They had a heavy influence Gqom.

I always say that beauty comes from pain.

Smooth arrangement Vumani Makhosi by Letta Mbulu. Siyajabula  :D .

Of all the music on the continent, I think SA music is the most soulful and soothing. Even the Congolese don't come close. Funnily enough it's countries that suffered the most oppression that seem to produce the best music in the world. Examples USA (slavery) - black music. SA - Apartheid ; good music all round. Congo; Plunder, death and poverty; Rhumba/Lingala  :D

As surely as the sun rises each morning, everything on this planet washes away in the long run, bro. I am getting better at accepting and dealing with this bitter fact each additional year God allows me to tarry on this planet.

Was watching a clip of celebs who died in 2022. Wakina Bob Saget who we used to watch daily GONE!


This joint takes me way back to 1994/5. Days of innocence looking forward to a lifetime ahead. Especially in the land of opportunity! If only we knew that it was far from paradise!
Also reminds me of Asali. We will never get the mid to late 90s back ever again, man.

Matchbox 20 - Push. Summer 1997. Crazy summer it was. The OJ case media whirlwind, Princess Di dies, Tony Blair became PM, Tiger Woods youngest ever to win the masters at 21, Biggie was shot dead and so much more.

Secada is classic. Matchbox 20 captures that period well.  I think Lenny Kravitz is another sound that peaked around that time.

is also catchy.

Good stuff. !995- 2002 were ruled by the Boy Bands. Wakina NSYNC, Backstreet 98 degrees and more!
My favourite by far was 3EB. These two songs ruled my tape deck in 1999.  Man where did those amazing days (90s college rock) go?
Reminds me of cheap beers, smoke filled bars and uncoordinated jungu college crowd dancings

Yep, 3EB were memorable for sure.  You might have liked their analogue, Blink 182 as well.

Breeder LW reminds me of Nonini.  Entertaining kiasi.
