I REMEMBER FIRST HEARING A CLIP OF THIS SONG WHEN THE WB WAS PROMOTING THE PREMIERE OF ROSEWELL. I WAS IMMEDIATELY TAKEN IN BY THE SONG'S HAUNTING FEELING. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS WAS 1999 AND NAPSTER WAS JUST BEGINNING TO MAKE NOISE AS THE WORLD'S FIRST FILE SHARING PROGRAM, SO I COULD NOT GET MY HANDS ON THE SONG. I WAITED AND WAITED FOR A RELEASE DATE BUT THAT DID NOT COME UNTIL ALMOST A YEAR LATER. BUT THAT DECISION SEEMED TO WORK AS IT PROPELLED HER ALBUM TO MULTI-PLATNIUM STATUS, MAKING IT THE #1 ALBUM OF 2001.

I'm flashing back on 1999 today. I'm transferring the MTV Video Music Awards from VHS to DVD today. I was lucky to attend this show, that's why I kept my recording. I almost shed a tear when I saw Aaliyah being interviewed in the pre-show. :(
