80's Flashback

Klymaxx, The Men All Pause, 1984. It wasn't until their fourth album that the all-female Klymaxx scored their first hit single, taking the hilarious The Men All Pause to the Top Ten of the R&B and dance charts and into the repertoire and hairstyles of drag queens worldwide. The ladies saw similar success with the equally amusing follow-up, Meeting In The Ladies Room, but it was their next release, the ballad I Miss You, that introduced them to the pop charts, hitting #5 and creating a decades-long run as one of the most requested radio dedication tracks. The group ended their chart presence in 1990 having scored a total of three pop Top 40 hits and seven Top 20s on the R&B chart. In 1990 lead singer Berndatte Cooper ("riding in my Cooper's limousine") had a minor solo hit with I Look Good. Since then the band's members have been mired in internal legal disputes over ownership of their trademarked name. Slap me, somebody slap me.
