The year was 1999. My parents had just invested in cable TV, and my Brother & I were obsessed with ‘The Box’ music channel. The stand-out video was of course TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’.
As a nine-year old girl, I didn’t fully understand the ‘No Scrubs’ ethos Tionne, Lisa, and Rozonda were singing about – but I really wanted to walk on walls (see video below).
When I heard the song in a club on Friday night, however, I left my wall-climbing dreams behind and attacked the empty dance floor with my friends. What a weekend. No Scrubs, no nonsense – all good stuff.
