Now, Michel’le is not a favorite artist of mine, but when her song “No More Lies” came out in the very later part of 1989, it was as though it went viral. Does anybody remember it? My opinion is that, the song became a hit because of its catchy phrase “doo doo doo doo.” She didn’t have a whole lot of vocal control (in my opinion); on a lot of her songs it was almost like listening to Minnie Mouse’s sister. She was just one of those lucky performers that got their hands on a good producer, that gave her great lyrics and good music to back it up. This is one of those situations where having a “good beat” paid off in the long run. Yet, the song did seem to appeal to a lot of young people then, and like many teenage songs in that era, they were often in response to the “playa” mind set. In 1990, the song peaked at #7, and stayed within the top 100 for 29 weeks. Oh, I almost forgot, there was another song I really liked, which she actually sang the best out of all the songs in this album. The song is called “Something In My heart,” and she really showcased all the power and potential of her voice. The sad part was, this song’s highest peak was only at 31 on the music charts.  I think it was then, I started to have an awareness that people started to care more about the beat, than the lyrics and quality. There were a couple of cute & danceable songs on this same album though. Check out her entire album on Spotify’s web player here. It’s kinda cute.
