“A Song For Mama” by Boyz II Men
This song instantly made every grown man and woman speed dial their mamas for some quick TLC. Years later, it’s still in heavy rotation on Mother’s Day.
“September” by Earth Wind & Fire
Not a new hit for the 90’s, but the 1978 classic “September” was a good fit for the Soul Food soundtrack. Every movie soundtrack needs at least one old school groove.
“We’re Not Making Love No More” by Dru Hill
Remember these boys from B-More? Well, this sexy song about the lack thereof was perfect for the up and down romantic relationships in Soul Food. It makes you want to grab a friend and say, “Girl, get it together!”
“What About Us” by Total
First of all, if you remember anything about the 90’s, then you know Puff Daddy and his Bad Boy family ruled most of it. There’s nothing like a joint from the “it” girl group on Puff’s label at the time.
“I Care About You” by Milestone
Whether a real group or not, this song was smooth and actually landed on the Billboard charts. Comprised of K-Ci & JoJo, Babyface and his two brothers, Kevon and Melvin; Milestone made the soundtrack certifiably hot!
