90's Guilty Pleasures #18: Mark Morrison "Return Of The Mack" (1996)

One might label this as "I Will Survive" for the 90's, except that this song is about 8 billion times better than "I Will Survive." Under the surface, "Return Of The Mack" is secretly saturated with emotion, to the extent where Morrison actually needs to exclaim "OH MY GOD!" several times before the song fades away. Amazingly, this was far more popular in the UK, only reaching #2 in the states several months after topping the UK charts. And from what I've read, there are UK residents who have no idea this song is known outside of BBC transmissions.
