TLC's Waterfalls features in Captain Marvel along with a few other classic 90s songs, bu the real meaning behind it is pretty dark. With Captain Marvel storming the box office we've been listening - and re-listening - to its 90s soundtrack. As we made our way through the Captain Marvel soundtrack we couldn't help but notice the darker meanings behind the tracks. Take TLC's Waterfalls, it turns out something that sounded like it was just about a nice water feature or exotic location is really about serious issues, including drugs and HIV.
We wanted to make a song with a strong message — about unprotected sex, being promiscuous, and hanging out in the wrong crowd. The messages in Waterfalls hit home. When it first went to radio, nobody got it. It needed the video to bring the words to life.
