    It started out pretty well, but it disintegrated into three people all singing in different keys. Awful.

    Glad I missed it. The retired Navy CPO did a great job at Chiefs / Titans game

    FunFact
    According to most modern "best of" lists, Boyz2Men has the distinction of owning the all-time greatest R&B hit in their song "Poison".
    Another fun fact...
    I almost ran over MCHammer and Boyz2Men in Tyler, TX years ago while swiftly cutting through a Sheraton parking lot to get to the main road.
    Flew around a back corner, started to accelerate, looked up and... screech..brake slam...right there appx 15 feet from my hood staring at me with a "you almost killed us, idiot" look on their face was MCHammer, Boyz2Men and a few homies as they had just exited a tour bus .

    Edit: I did almost run over MCHammer in his ZCavariccis but it was BellBivDevoe who performed "Poison" (thanks LC) ...not the other nearly-run-over singing group known as Boyz2Men

    I personally thought it was the most stunning arrangement I have ever heard.

    She could not sing harmony too. The arrangement is what blew me away. Totally original and the range of voices was just staggering. Never heard bass like the Boyz.

    Boyz2Men did another much talked about version couple years back w Philly (where they are from) during their NickFoles SuperBowl run.
    If you'd rather, go check out Carl Lewis' version a while back.
    ... truly amazing

    He was a First Class Petty Officer. A Chief would've been too busy holding his coffee cup, sucking in his gut and telling others how important to the overall mission he is...

    Wasn't it Bell Biv Devoe who did Poison?

    Lol...You are so right, LC!
    Sometimes, one is so quick to post something when there is something one actually "knows" something about...one may jump the gun.
    In this case, that one is me...and I guess I go back to knowing nothing relevant now.
    :rolleyes1:
    Now I have to deal w the, unwritten, time-honored posting rules and decide what to do w that embarrassing post:
    I leave it and look like an idiot or edit it and make your post incongruent???

    So, do you think Boyz2Men has ever entertained the thought of changing their name... now that they are all grown up and all??
