#23 – The Tony Rich Project – “Nobody Knows” – (1995)

Here is one smooth song. I really don’t know why it’s credited under “The Tony Rich Project” and not just “Tony Rich,” but maybe nobody knows? Mr. Rich was nominated for a Grammy for best Male Vocal Performance – and rightfully so (he lost to Eric Clapton). It’s kind of a shame that modern R&B isn’t this good (and that Tony Rich didn’t have any other hits to speak of). If you look at the YouTube comments for this video, you see people talking about how they lost their virginity to this song in the 90s – yeah, I said it was smooth.
