Album: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

Best line: “No matter how I think we grow/You always seem to let me know/It ain’t working.”

Complex says: If songs were rated for their honesty, this classic joint by Ms. Hill would have to take the number-one spot. Nobody has ever captured the confusing roller-coaster ride of dysfunctional relationships like L-Boogie did in this song, perhaps the most wrenching on her painfully pungent solo debut.

Of course we’d need a million more paragraphs to provide sufficient background on Lauryn’s tumultuous romantic past with Wyclef Jean and Rohan Marley… so let’s just keep it simple and stick to the music.
