I'm pretty sure she doesn't feel anything.
 
2013-06-23 03:32:04 PM
She was left cold by the news.

Oh, I get it...she's dead so she feels nothing...that's pretty funny

Probably not too proud

Can't wait for the "We Need Cash Reunion Tour."

They can just hologram in the pyro.

CrazySexyCool is still a great album. All the songs are solid and easy to enjoy the whole album.

Hey, Lisa...is being wormfood getting on your nerves?

It sounds like her family doesn't understand the economic reasons for rerecording their old music.   Of course, since they used a new singer for Lopes' part, her family isn't going to get a cut of that right?  So they complain.

We heard the announcement that Lisa Lopez died in the delivery room as my son was being born, April 25, 2002.

My 11 year old white son could possibly be the reincarnation of Lisa Left Eye Lopez.

Buddy Holly is alive and well on Ganymede.

Unlikely

She'll get her songwriter money, but nothing for the recording as a performer.

So let's say they license the recording to a movie producer, the performers/owners of the new recording get paid for that.   The family would have gotten paid if that movie producer had licensed the older recording instead, the one she's on.  So they might have gotten the writer AND performer cut, whereas now they'll just get the writer's cut.

Good times. Also it was funny when years later people would try submitting those as newsflashes.

Me too.  Great song.

Hey, TLC thread. This is as good a time to ask this as ever.
These albums came out like two *weeks* apart from each other, back in 1999, and I remember the ad posters being up near each other in stores, by coincidence.
Did anyone else notice how similar the covers were?

I was just wondering why they decided on some Japanese chick that had a very forgettable addition to the song over, well, anyone else.
 
2013-06-23 07:21:43 PM
She rolled over in her grave.

I had a strong desire to have sex with TLC.  Not so much with the Scorpions.  But yes, very similar.

It's been covered multiple times, but Reigndrop?  Is that...is that what happened to Nicholas II or something?
 
2013-06-23 08:13:43 PM
Ughh...

The re-record sounds so lazy and unenthusiastic. Very disappointing.

Compared side by side, the original has a lot more soul to it.
 
2013-06-23 08:14:14 PM
Always thought they should have release a version with a chorus of "Don't go burning houses down."

Sorry, I'm not up on pop music on the other side of the farking world, but her voice was thin and near non existent in the mix. Not saying she isn't popular or whatever, but are they marketing the remake to Japan or something? Is she popular in the states?
 
2013-06-23 11:51:47 PM
Who cares? TLC were overrated talentless hacks, with a little training anybody could do what they did.

Might want to see a doctor about that. If left untreated, water on the brain can be serious.

Elsewhere, the track "Crooked Smile" the surviving members did with J. Cole on his latest album is pretty good.
 
2013-06-24 04:40:07 AM
How come no one has linked to her death video yet? Or is that a banning offence?
 
2013-06-24 05:41:45 AM
Didn't the other two girls have a reality show some years back where they tried to find a replacement for Lisa? I think the name of the winner (if you can call her that) was Oh-so Crispy or something stupid like that. As far as I know, nothing came of it.

At least Chili has a steady income as producer Dallas Austin's baby mama.

I know people always try to cash in later, but this just seems wrong.
