Diana Dors in Deep End Gotta be one of the greatest movie cameos ever.

The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town said...

The Worm that Turned was classic.

Dan said...

No Jean Grae tho?

IRespectFemales said...

so with you on Just Another Day. Never heard Stylin before, its good af.

Never mind Lauren, what about Heather?

Gotta admit to never liking Suga T much but 40 had classics w Sherry Stack-A-Dick & Passion


Personal left field fav is Ms Tee from Cash Money, she made a show of the lads every time unlike yr 1 from Juggaknots

"Stylin'" was a massive song on Westwood back in 2002, as was the remix with Baby, NORE, Loon & whatever Foxy's brother was called. One of those songs that's slipped through the cracks in the year's since 😕

First series of The Real World was the only good thing Heather B ever did.

Good list. One omission that I wouldn't expect anyone to include is Red Paint; the most slept on female rap group and St. Louis rap group. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NzObv1_tGM

My Neck, My Back should be at number 1 tho!
