Okay (why do I do this to myself?). I want to talk tonight about Bust A Move and Young MC. Yes, seriously. You know you need a show-stopper to play at your New Year’s Eve party tonight.
This song came up on my iPod shuffle mix recently and I impressed my cohorts with my fresh rapping skills (just call me Left Eye), and the fact that I knew ALL the lyrics (including the moaning part after we “Break it down for me fellas”). This is due to the fact that I owned the cassette single.
I thought that you might enjoy it too, some of you (the rest of you have already left to click off somewhere more erudite).
You know you want to download it, bob your chin forward and back, make some embarrasing rapper hand gestures while you try to recall all the lyrics.
“Bust A Move” – Young MC
Here is a bonus trivia question, and I will find something cool to send to the first person who can leave me a comment answering it: What is Young MC’s real name, as revealed in the groundbreaking work, Principal’s Office? Hint: he tells it to that girl he is passing notes to in class.
Oh, man. I might regret this post in the morning. Happy New Year. And no, I haven’t been drinking yet.
