3 Play Thursday - Keith Sweat.

It's 3 Play Thursday. Today: Legendary Crier/Crooner Keith Sweat.

Keith Sweat is one of those love/hate singers. Folks either think he recorded some of the best babymaking music this side of Luther, or find his incessant begging and whiny voice akin to fingernails on a chalkboard. Personally, "Keef" is one of my favorites, and occupies a nice chunk of my iPod.

Here's a few of my favorite Keith Sweat tunes.

"How Deep Is Your Love?"

Damnit, now that's the prototypical slow jam. The 808's. The autotune. The crashing symbols.

"Make It Last Forever"

I have no idea who Jackie McGhee is, nor why this is seemingly the only song she ever recorded, but her + Keith = PB&J on this quiet storm classic. Unfortunately, the Gods of YouTube litigation won't allow me to run the real version here, so enjoy this instrumental instead. Or don't.

"Don't Stop Your Love"

Keith wasn't a one-trick pony. He could rock the uptempo joints too.

Question: What's your favorite Keith Sweat tune?
