I will bet almost any amount of money that, until most of my readers saw this post, you totally forgot about P.M. Dawn! Well, that’s precisely why I started this music blog, to reignite those classic brain cells back again 😍 Their song “Set Adrift On Memory Bliss” released in 1991, had to have been my most favorite. This song obviously hit #1 not only on the U.S. Top 100 Charts, New Zealand, it was also #1 on Canada’s Dance Charts. The song also ranked quite high outside our country, such as Germany. P.M. Dawn was one of the few hip hop groups I enjoyed listening to. Actually, the original group didn’t just perform hip hop, they sang all kinds of other music too However, I think their hip hop (ish) songs were more popular (at least the way I remembered it).
Album Cover Brought Back Memories Of Black Hair Fashion
P.M. Dawn’s sense of fashion was unique to say the least. But, this particular album cover brought back memories of Black hair styles! This was at a time where it seemed every single African American was wearing beads! I also remembered when we used to use aluminum foil to keep the ends and beads from coming out! I found it hilarious in away, because when I was a teenager looking for a job, the first thing they would tell me was “no braids, and definitely no beads.” I don’t know how Black folk manage to make beads so popular back in the day. 🤣
In light of what’s happening in our culture in regards to race, I think it would be a very interesting conversation concerning the rights of potential employers and the rights of employees if this style was current today.
Attrell & Jarrett Cordes Were The Original P.M. Dawn
Brothers Attrell & Jarrett Cordes were the original members of P.M. Dawn. It is unfortunate that Attrell, also known as Prince Be, died a couple of years ago as a result of heart disease. Jarrett Cordes, also known as DJ Minutemix, is still performing and making music. Both men made many contributions to the hip hop community. Although the new P.M. Dawn, Doc. G, & K-R.O.K. are ok. My heart is with the O.G.
