Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Lean/Sit/Stand.

~~~~~~~~~~

As one out of five singles released from the wildly popular soundtrack of the 1995 film Waiting to Exhale, starring Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett, Brandy’s Sittin’ Up in My Room  reached number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming her most successful single on that particular chart up to that point.

The song won the award for Best Song from a Movie at the 1996 MTV Awards and was also nominated for Best Video from a Film

. Actor Donald Faison, known for the character Christopher Turk in the medical comedy-drama Scrubs, appears in the Sittin’ Up in My Room video. Faison played the son of Loretta Devine’s character Gloria in Waiting to Exhale.

 

FUN FACTS:

  • The characteristic bass intro is a replica of the famous riff performed by bassist Larry Graham, of Sly and the Family Stone, on their hit “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)”.
  • Sittin’ Up in My Room also peaked at number two on the Hot 100 Singles chart (kept from the top spot by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s One Sweet Day), staying on the chart for a total of thirty-three weeks. The single earned a platinum award by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on May 23, 1996, with 1,000,000 copies sold less than six months after it’s release.

Enjoy!
