80’s Old School Jam Of The Moment: “I Melt With You” Modern English

Modern English I Melt With You Single Photo: 45Worlds.com

The 80's Old School Jam Of The Moment is "I Melt With You" by Modern English.

Modern English was a British New Wave band and was from their 1982 album "After The Snow" and if you can believe it, "I Melt With You" only made it to number #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1983. Terrible.

The song was featured prominently in the movie "Valley Girl" and although MTV had it in heavy rotation and the band re-released it with mixes in 1990 and it re-entered the Billboard charts going all the way to......#76, just two places higher than when it was first released.

At least VH-1 ranked it at #39 in their top 100 songs of the 80's list.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Modern English re-recorded the song again 2010 and this time.....the world still didn't stop...and the song didn't chart.

The first Old School Jam Of The Moment Of 2013 is "Poison" by Bell Biv Devoe.

The song was recorded in 1989 and released in the early part of 1990 and samples from Kool G. Rap's song called "Poison" as well. The song stalled at number #3 on the Billboard Charts for 3 weeks in June of 1990, even though the single went platinum.

The song was followed by "Do Me" where the band wore overalls in the video. When school started back that fall, everyone was wearing overalls spray-painted with different artwork.

Because of Bell Biv Devoe, the sayings "Never trust a big butt and a smile" and "the J the I the M the M the Y y'll" are still a staple to this day.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Still doesn't trust a big butt and a smile....
