I know........Dionne Farris #90smusic

Something amazing happened to me today. I can't wait to spill the beans, but you'll have to wait a bit. Avez du patience s'il vous plait - trying to give my rusty french a shot here, hehe.

I went to dig this one out from the archives for today's #90smusic post! If you know it, you really did rock the 90s! I am referring to Dionne Farris, I know. She left Arrested Development (this group rocked!) and launched out on her own with this hit single which went straight to the top of the billboards. No surprise there, because this was a time when you could swing a hit song without taking your clothes off or trying to twerk with your tongue hanging out on stage - Miley style. All you needed was a great mind for deep lyrics and great accompaniments. Good old days!

The simplicity of the lyrics of this song, the acoustic arrangement and her voice are just some of the things I love about the song. Plus its a song about liberating women in a way...... "I know what you're doing and it's not going to work this time". Sometimes, you're stuck in this cycle, you know the drill, you know the lyrics, yet it gets you over and over again - Break yourself free from all forms of manipulation! Just say, no more!

I wonder what she's up to these days. She just came and disappeared or maybe not! Turns out she put out some new material in 2011 and even 2013! Those ones definitely passed me by.

Enjoy!

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you dialed my number
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you care

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you say you love me
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
And I don't think it's fair

I know why you dialed my number
I know why you say you're mine
I know what you're doing,

And it's not, gonna work, this time (2)

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I can never sing in that key
I know what you're doing yeah yeah
And you're the one to blame

I know what you're doing yeah yeah
I know why you can't forgive me
I know why you're singing lost love
The lyrics haven't changed

1-I can recognize the symptoms
You should know I've changed my mind
I know what you're doing
And it's not, gonna work this time
Hey hey hey, said it's not gonna work this time...

I know what you're doing, baby
I know why you call my name
I know why you say you love me
but I can't say the same
(repeat 1)
