    Default Most Underrated Kells Songs

    You know, since it's Friday, I was just chillin out with some friends. You know, drinkin and a little smokin and just havin a good time. (Thank God it's Friday, right? Yeah!) And tonight I decided to go a little old school Kells with my playlist, so I put on 12 Play and when the song Sadie came on, I realized that no one talks about that track. So I figured I'd ask the question: what do you guys think is/are the most underrated Kells song(s)? Here's my list (I'll add more later):

    1) Sadie
    2) Ladies' Night (Treat Her Like Heaven)
    3) The Greatest Show on Earth
    4) Dream Girl
    5) Fiesta (the ORIGINAL, NOT the one with Jay-Z)

    And finally, I know this is not as great a song as Kells' other work, but I just really love the song he did for the Katrina victims, Let Your Light Shine. Aight maybe the haters will say it's cheesy, but it just works for me for some reason.

    I can come up with some tracks that are underrated AND unknown largely enough.

    Up And Outta Here
    The whole U Saved Me album
    Discovery-Brian McKnight
    Love Angel-JS
    Guess What Guess Again remix/Special Occasion/I Am Your Woman-Syleena Johnson

    This is all I can think of for now....

    great topic:

    welll from the hits side I gotta say

    she's got that vibe, a better forgotten New Jack Swing cut IMO

    I can't sleep re mix and he added so much life to it

    i'm your angel and the fact he matched the vocal itensity of celine dion

    Trapped in the Closet because it had a whole vibe onto itself.


    non hits

    up and outta here

    do your thang

    trade in my life

    religious Love

    the greatest sex

    dream girl

    forever


    and there are more.

    You came up with a great concept that seperates the songs into hits and non-hits. I'm thinkin of more......Oh!

    I was just in my car and If I'm Wit You was playing and I actually thought about how good a song that was and how so many of his album cuts especially from the 90s are very underrated/overlooked.

    I agree with Dreamgirl on the original version of Step In The Name of Love being underrated because it seems the remix gets all the plaudits. Personally I have always been a bigger fan of the original. Its funny how maxxx mentioned She's Got That Vibe as being forgotten because here in Australia and also in Europe from what I gather, it is considered an essential New Jack Swing track, a staple of old school sets in the clubs too.

    I agree with Up & Outta Here being underrated, in fact most of his soundtrack work is except I Believe I Can Fly which obviously gained much recognition. Bad Man, Just A Touch, It's All Good and the list goes on. Hell I would add the majority of album cuts from R. Kelly, R. and TP-2.Com onto my list too. You could even mention the entire Loveland project because had that been released it wouldn't be just us die hards who would continue to talk about it

    Reading through this topic, I agree with all of the mentioned songs. R. Kelly has some many underrated songs, I can't even think of all of them. That's why I won't respond to this topic...

    EDIT: OK here are a few...makes me mad those songs never got the attention they deserve:

    Secret Weapon - Day Dreamin
    Maurice Mahon - Closer To You
    Talent - Turn To Lies
    R. Kelly - Get Up On A Room
    MJ - One More Chance
    Tamia - Questions
    R. Kelly - Sex in the kitchen REMIX
    R. Kelly - Let Yout Light Shine
    R. Kelly - One Man
    R. Kelly - Trade In My Life

    I could go on for hours... Hidden Content

    I could fill up a whole page with songs, but i won't cause we all know that lots of Kells songs are underrated. I agree with all the posts above, and helena thanks for mentioning Love Angel. Not only that song but that whole album by JS is underrated. The original Step in the name of love. I remember that one getting lots of radio play over here, but all the attention went to the remix. Also more recently: Rise Up so bad the song doesn't get the attention it deserves
