Late last week, I got into a “slow jamz” mood with my playlist, which of course meant that Boyz II Men came to play. One of my favorites is “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday” (not to be confused with their cover of the Beetles’ “Yesterday”), and is also a candidate for “Most 90’s Video Ever”.
What is so impressive about this song is the root of what made Boyz II Men successful, amazing vocal harmony. Growing up, I always wanted to be able to sing like this, and I always get a little jealous when I listen to them. Yet, it’s captivating, especially when they go all-out a cappella like in this song. The way they blend their voices, you don’t notice the lack of instruments.
