#95: SWV ‘Weak’

What would our countdown be without one of SWV's best-loved if not known classics? "Weak" was sweet, melodic and no one knew the words! I can submit that most of us back then just made up the chorus as we went along and it didn't really matter, because it was the sh**. SWV remains the girl group that invokes the most nostalgia and prayers for a comeback, more than Total, Xscape, Jade or any others (but we love them too). If you still don't know the words seventeen years later, here you go:

I get so weak in the knees I can hardly speak.
I lose all control and something takes over me.
In a daze and it's so amazing, it's not a phase.
I want you to stay with me, by my side.
I swallow my pride, your love is so sweet.
It knocks me right off of my feet.
I can't explain why your loving makes me weak.

  1. Aww yea aww yea! Definitely had to be on the list. We all became songwriters on this one.
    LMAO@ if you don't know the words 17 years later! You know there are some folx reading real closely.
    Wait....17 years! I'm officially old.

  2. They killed it on this track.
    Omg I remember those looong nails...

  3. Definitely list-worthy. SWV had a nice lil string of hits, this being one of their best. You couldn't turn on The Box without seeing the video every 5 minutes, or walk down the hallways of my junior high school without hearing every Coko wannabe singing the words all loud and wrong. lol I can't believe it's been 17 years. Wow.

  4. LOVE SWV!Let me rephrase I stan their music!I love this song.Who couldn't relate?Much respect to SB!

  5. This song reminds of a hot-n-humid summer, fan blowing from the window, licking on a $0.25 Kool Aid freezy from the Candy lady, and thinking about a crush from high school. Ahh...memories...

  6. Now that was amazing. Had not heard it in a while so thanks for posting it. It is so unfortunate there are very very few REAL SINGERS making records like SWV these days.

  7. i love this song!! i remember singin this song in 4th grade in the back of the bus!! such memories...and the version jo-jo put out was pretty good too!

  8. You guys probably already knew you were getting this shoutout! But I had to post this! Congrats, you are getting the recognition you deserve.
