Radio 60, side B, track 3: “Poison” by Bell Biv Devoe

BBD - PoisonOh, Bell Biv Devoe, you’ve given me a lot to think about today.  “Never trust a big butt and a smile”.  That just goes against everything I was raised to believe, you know?

Seriously, though, Bell Biv Devoe, I had no idea that’s what that line was until just now, and I very much regret it, because I would have LOVED to have known that’s what you guys were singing.  I would have gleefully sang that line every day on the bus and in the hallways at school and in classrooms.  It’s a pretty amazing line, Bell Biv Devoe, mostly because it’s so ridiculously hilarious and you’re so earnest in your belief in it.

It just seems like there are so many other life lessons you could be teaching impressionable guys like myself.  Obviously you’re not going to be teaching abstinence, but maybe the importance of a jimmy hat?  Or as I’ve recently learned from another song, that money on the wood make the game go good and money outta sight cause fights?  “Never trust a big butt and a smile” seems a little too broad to really be of any value.  I mean, I appreciate that you didn’t say “Never trust a big butt OR a smile”, because that would rule out almost every interaction you would ever have.  But I feel like there are a lot of people who smile and have big butts that you’d be fine to trust.  And what exactly is the definition of a big butt anyway?  I’m just saying, Bell Biv Devoe, depending on your standards, you could be talking about me.  And sure, maybe I’m NOT the most trustworthy guy in the world, but I wouldn’t want someone discounting me just because I’m friendly and have an ass that may or may not be big.

Look, Bell Biv Devoe, why don’t you guys stick to making awesome music like this and leave the dispensation of life knowledge to the professionals like Fetty Wap and Justin Bieber?
