Classic Material: All Cried Out, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam w/ Full Force


Does it get any better on the R&B Classic tip? Maybe Fire & Desire which might just be the best song ever made. But I dare anyone to find a better moment in R&B than when random dude came in on that second verse with that medium low voice talkin’ about “Never wanted to see things your way”… Oh mannn.. Run it!

Wait did you see that cat’s headgear? Had the curl/sash combo. Now was he from Cult Jam or Full Force? I could never tell. And yes, Lisa Lisa (why the double name?) could have GOTTEN it back then. Oh and look at Lake Sr. getting in there with see, that’s how you know it’s the 80’s… Now that I think about it, that’s kind of terrible. They just had homeboy laid back in the cut, sittin on swole wondering why the smooth YT/ambiguous latino cat got to lay down with Lisa Lisa.

Corny curl/sash/suit combo notwithstanding, this cat was MURDERING this song! That cat’s adlibs were spot on. Tender and thoughtful (no homo) but powerful:

Dude: Oh nooooo, I’m soooo sorry

Lisa: Apology not accepted, add me to the broken hearts you collected!!! Eyeeeeee!


Whoooooooooooooooooooo weeee. That’s crazy.

– Lake


Yo, I can’t stop playing this video.  You talked about the brother with the sash…let’s talk about this other cat.

First of all he has the jheri curl with the beaded rat tail on the left hand side.  But my favorite part has to be that blinged out treble clef broach that cat is rocking on the lapel.  Is that the early precursor to the jesus piece?  Did he walk into a jewelry store and say, “Hey, hey there brother.  I’m going to need you to make me a three and a half inch tall, diamond studded, lapel pin.  Can you put a pin in the top and the bottom so it doesn’t spin around?  Yeah, thanks.  I wan’t to make sure I keep it on the angle.  Yeah, that shit will be fly”.  Then he gets to the set and rocks it with his suit and wife beater combo.  That is fully ridiculous.

Also, you have to let the track run until at least 3:51 when my man from Full Force gets so worked up that he hits you with “I left ya SO confrused”.  Yeah, he sounds confrused as hell.

    This was the jam back in the day. A little Lisa Lisa, a little Ready for the World, a little Roger on the mixtape and let the festivities commence! Ah the memories…

  2. Lil' Ralphy Lifshtiz Says:

    That is not just any random dude. That is Paul Anthony, (aka Stab from House Party) the lead vocalist of Full Force and brother to B-Fine and Bowlegger Lou.

    Discovered this site about a month ago and loving it.

    That random dude could sing the hell out of that song, and Lisa Lisa was fine.

    Good blog, keep it up.

    Damn man, you got me stuck on this hit now.

    The Allure ft 112 remix is hotter.

  7. Lake Arlington Says:

    Allure remix? Manuva PLEEZ.. That extra high “neva wanted to see things your way” from 112 is not hot. Come on now.. How could you say such a blasphemous thing?

  8. KIR in NV Says:

    For reals Lake you ain’t lied. Keep it classic. They did it right the first time.

  9. KayLa Says:

    I love this song I just found out that lisa lisa sings this.I knew it was a white woman with a black man when I was little and now I know! 112 should let this classic piece be know on it’s own the video was hot.The 122 or 112 couldnt pull it off! For the first time ever I know! I kept looking for the orignal verison i used to hear this all the time even today.

    Lisa Lisa is “spanish,” Puerto Rican I think, not white. Tina Marie is the white woman who sounds black.
