#8 New Edition - "Can You Stand the Rain"

Do you remember where you were in 1988 when you first heard this song? If you don’t love “Can You Stand the Rain”, stop reading right now, never speak to me, join a cult and drink the kool-aid. Ralph, Ricky, Johnny, Ricky & Mike did their thing on this track. We’ve all been there, starting what seems like a beautiful relationship, but wondering if this person will really have your back when things got a little thick.
Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis were really on their thing when they put this one together and it was the perfect showcase for Johnny as a new member of NE. The song perfected blended Ralph, Ricky and Johnny’s distinct voices over a beautiful melody and made a classic. Go on, play it now and sing along.
