    That's okay I don't expect anyone to really know it. It never got popular outside of NY and, I believe, Miami. Or at least it didn't get popular as far as I know. I could be totally ignorant to the rampant freestyle wave sweeping Idaho right now.

    I got your letter... from the postman just the other day... so I decided to write you this song... just to let you know...la la la (OK, I still know the words)

    Yep, that's the one. Not exactly in line with the rest of his music.

    Perfect Way – Scritt Politti

    Hey aj, I bought that song on a little cassette single “back in the day” (Stevie B. Because I love you). Okay, Puerto Rican, hmmm, not sure if I’ve heard it or not. Remember “Nobody’s gonna break-ah my stride, nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh no, I’ve got ta keep a movin’” I’m not saying that’s what you’re talking about, but wondering if the style you mention is almost reggae-ish?

    I *do* remember that song (I loved it!), but that's not quite the same thing. Part of the reason I was hesitant to bring up that Stevie B. guy is because that one song is REALLY different than the rest of his freestyle work. In fact, he was like the redheaded stepchild of the freestyle world. His songs sucked. I wish I was more familiar with musical terminology, because I could probably describe it better if I were. Mariah Carey remade one of my favorite freestyle songs a few years back, but I have to look up what it was.

    ...5 minutes later

    It was "Sweetheart", and it was on her Butterfly album. So if any of you have this, well, God have mercy on your soul, but beyond that, that's a pop remake of a freestyle song.
