not mary, although that was hot too. i'm taking it further back with skyy. remember skyy? real love? don't be afraid of the way you feel ... ok, my earliest memory of this song: it was back in the day and i snuck in my brother's room to listen to this mix tape (and i do mean cassette tape, not cd, not an ipod, lol) that one of his chick's had made for him. she had dedicated all these songs to him and one of them was this one. i loved the song after the very first time of listening to it ... check it.
