Somebody please help me remember a song by a group called Riff. They were the guys in the bathroom singing the school anthem on the movie Lean on me. I remember I used to love their debut single but I can't remember how it goes or find them on any sites. Help!!.

TUNYA OTTRIX,

Riff "My heart is failing me"



http://www.njs4ever.com/riff.html

Riff


Quoted in VIBE Magazine as one of *Nsync member J.C. Chasez's major influences, Riff first made their presence known in the 'based-on-a-true-story' 1989 film Lean On Me singing "Fair Eastside", an ode to their high school (in real life!).

Two years later, Riff arrived in the summer of 1991 with "My Heart Is Failing Me," an incredibly warm ballad by the group. By this time, they had also added vocals to labelmate Vanilla Ice's third single, "I Love You."

But perhaps it was their sparkling second single, "If You're Serious" that Riff is best known for. They followed that up with the upbeat "Everytime My Heart Beats" and contributed the title cut of the White Men Can't Jump Soundtrack with the Highland Place Mobsters and Dallas Austin.

Riff then released a follow-up album in 1993 before going quiet. Notable moments in their career include a stunning acapella performance of "Oh Mary Don't You Weep" on the Arsenio Hall show in 1991.

Tayla,

You're welcome! Yes, I have a passion for 90's music. Yeah, N. E. is up there. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow!

I checked out your website. Very Nice. I see Lil' Nell has a very big fanclub already! LOL.

Good luck on your fame, fortune and up coming acts.

P.S. I thought you were a female, by the name, until I saw your pic on the wesite. (smile)

Hey Tunya, are you taking about the song titled "This Time"?
This Time by Shanice / Kiara
Year 1989


[Kiara]
I removed your picture from my wall
Now what used to be a house too big
Is now a room too small
Everytime I close my eyes I`d realize
I couldn`t find enough things to do
I never really got over you

[Shanice]
I wrote you letters
I got no reply
And just when I was walking out on Love
To my surprise
Don`t you wanna come inside
Where it`s warm and dry
Instead of standing in the doorway
With tears in your eyes

[Chorus]
This time -- I won`t back down
This time -- I`ll stand my ground
I don`t think you realize
What went on inside
Now I`m never gonna give up
Until I`m back by your side

[Shanice]
I fought off heartaches, one by one
And when I was about to give up
I`d realize the day was gone
Everytime I`d close my eyes
I`d see you cry
I can`t forget the look on your face
Baby when I said goodbye

[Kiara]
I read your letters each and every night
With intent and pen in hand
I was much too weak to write
Every night I`d pace the floor until
I couldn`t take it anymore
I was just about to give up
Then you opened the door

Chorus

[Kiara]
Before we went wrong, you know
We used to be so right
I know we should surrender to love
But we gave up without a fight

[Shanice]
I just wanna let you know
I never should`ve let you go
Boy I wanna be back in your arms
So let`s try it once More

Wrecks-N-Effect was 1989 so it didn't fit the puzzle.

Did I win the new Mercedes SL 600?
