Who Am I?: Answer

29 September 2008 4 Comments

If you can answer the question “Why won’t this pose just DIE?” I’ll give you partial credit. Otherwise, no clues on who this is … just figure it out.

UPDATE: I decided to be fair to my subscribers and post the “Who Am I?” answers in separate posts. Not that it really matters this time, because no one figured out that this is Rome who sang “I Belong To You (Everytime I See Your Face)” back in 1997. Jazzy gets the partial credit for realizing that what she calls “the proverbial penitentiary squat pose” simply cannot die, and therefore my question was a set-up. I feel badly for Reginald, who put forth the most valiant effort ever on this one, but way worse for Rome considering he’s working on a comeback and it doesn’t seem like anyone knows him from a can of paint. Maybe this video (featuring Paula Jai Parker of all people) will jog your collective memory.

    oh, i remember him. i mean, i didn’t recognize him, but i remember that song. they played it a lot in kalamazoo because he was from benton harbor, which is also in southwest michigan. (benton harbor was home to the only high school that my high school could consistently beat in tennis — probably in large part because they didn’t have tennis courts to practice on at their school…)

    You know what?…….Rome and Case morphed into the same person in my mind years ago. Like Vanessa Carlton ane that other swarthy piano playing pop singer who had like 2 or 3 hits at the exact same time about 7 or 8 years ago.

    I hated this song then, and I hate it now and I hate you for reminding me of it.

    I still have that Rome CD. I didn’t like every song on it, but there are a few classics. I would have never guessed that was him.

So what do you think? Please be respectful to other readers!
