Color Me... Surprised

While rifling through the shelves of CDs at the Barrett Memorial Library this morning, I stumbled upon a true gem from the 1990s. To quote my librarian friend Laura, "It is in pristine condition."

The CD? Color Me Badd's Time And Chance.

Librarian friend Anne pointed out that it is unusual for a CD with so many suggestive lyrics to feature a Bible quote on the cover, but such is the genius of Color Me Badd - you just never know what to expect. In this case, the cover features a quote from Ecclesiastes:

"I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill, but happenth to them all." - Ecclesiastes 9:11

Well put, Color Me Badd. Well put.

Loyal readers, you know you have the time for this album. Don't leave it to chance.
