Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes Remembered – 9 Years Later

"No Scrubs" video still from junior release, FanMail

Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (May 27, 1971 — April 25, 2002).

Those who know me know that Grammy Winners TLC are my favorite group of all-time.    They also  know that when Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died I took it very hard.

When I first kicked off this blog about three years ago, I sought and landed a popolio podcast interview with Left Eye’s brother, Ron Lopes.  The family was releasing her first posthumous release, Eye Legacy, and that’s what we talked about.

I also did a MY TOP 10:  Left Eye Videos countdown, reviewed the first single, “Let’s Just Do It,” featuring TLC (T-Boz and Chilli), and a few other things.

So, though I have no new Left Eye content, I’d like to re-present that content in memory of  Ms. Lopes.

Remember, these posts are at our first location on the web,  Now, I’m at   I know it can get confusing, but I had to remember Left Eye.  Especially since I didn’t do anything official last year.

ALSO!  Glee will be featuring a TLC song on TOMORROW’S all-new episode.   It will be “Unpretty” mashed up with “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story.

I’ve had a campaign going on Facebook for Glee to feature an all-TLC episode, that, candidly speaking, hasn’t really gained much traction.  I also proposed an all-girl group episode if a TLC one was more than what they were willing to do.  Now, Lady Gaga has gotten two as this is the Born This Way episode.  And, TLC just the one song, but it’s a start.  Hopefully, more TLC to come on Glee.  Join the Facebook group, In Support of Glee Making a TLC Episode!
