“Blame It On The Rain” by Milli Vanilli – 1989

This week we venture to Aaron Rubio’s basement to discuss the biggest swindle in pop music history and the 1989 number one “Blame it on the Rain” by Milli Vanilli. German pop/R&B artists Rob and Fab seemed to have it all with their good looks, synchronized dancing, and soulful singing. But all was not as it seemed. A group of session musicians were the real singers while Rob and Fab were credited as “visual performers”. As the group’s sound went international and quickly raced up the US charts, this not-so-hidden secret was grossly overlooked, and when revealed it destroyed their credibility and sent their music career into oblivion. How did they score so many hits without anyone in the US realizing they weren’t singing on the records? Who was the uber-shady producer responsible for this mess? How long does the flavor in Carefree sugarless gum last? All these questions and more will be answered in this episode of Single File.
