I don’t know why, but I was sitting here and the Eastside High school song, made popular in the movie Lean on Me, popped into my head. So naturally, I had to listen to it.
The guys from NJ started out as Playboy but changed to Riff after LOM. It’s too bad we didn’t really get to know the guys. Not only did they sing the school song in LOM but they were also responsible for the title track off of the White Man Can’t Jump soundtrack. Riff released a self-titled album in ’91 followed up byTo Whom it May Concern. They must not have sent the letter because I doubt that many people got the message. Or maybe I was just too young to appreciate them, especially when there was a new R&B male group every time you blinked. Click for some Riff music
