Welcome Beautiful Kings & Queens! 

Welcome to another edition of "Friday Flashback To The Past!  in this installment we bring you one of the hottest groups from yesterday, The one & only "New Edition"!  That's right it's lead singer Ralph along with "Ronnie, Bobby, Rickey, & Mike if I love the girl who cares who you like!"  We can't forget that classic line from the song we're bringing you today... "Candy Girl", the very first single New Edition ever made all the way back in the day.  The year was 1983 and "Candy Girl" was their first song to go to number 1! 

Can you believe it's been 30 years this year since this song first hit the airwaves and everybody went crazy! LOL!  The video for the song was way too cute!

New Edition has been together a total of 31 years!  That's incredible! 

I chose the extended vocal remix of this song just to remind y'all of the old school long version remixes that have long been forgotten.  This version of "Candy Girl" is almost 7 minutes long & once you hear it again, it'll be like hearing it for the first time all over again ... Trust Me!

So sit back and enjoy "Candy Girl" by New Edition From 1983.  And because General Nikki X is so full of surprises (as if you don't know that by now ;-), she's added a bonus song that will have you going all the way back in the day with a smile on your face!  Click the video below "Candy Girl" ... and CHILL!

New Edition performing live in Honolulu, Hawaii on their 30th Anniversary Tour Father's Day June 17, 2012. Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, Ronnie Devoe, Michael Bivins,  Rickey Bell, & Johnny Gill all together on one stage.  Enjoy this 12 minute bonus video.

We hope you enjoy our 39th edition of Friday Flashback To The Past.  Stay tuned next week when will be celebrating our 40th episode!  We've had a blast bringing you all of these old school and not so old school songs.
