I had the 45 way back when and thought it was a great song with the busy vocals and syncopated synth riff but haven't been able to find it anywhere for years. In those great 80's nights, I'd hear this song at the clubs and it sounded killer as it boomed all over the dance floor. Tonight I got lucky and finally found the song and video, which I've never seen.
And all I can say is WOW. What a video! It looks like one of those do it yourself videos you used to make in the Mall for $15.00. Cheap high school picture grey background, dudes with fringy jackets and huge earrings, plus shoulder pads and jerri curl for days. If that's not enough you get those great special effects like the every-other-frame-missing choppy movement, that never gets old! And classic dance steps in unison, I'm pretty sure I saw the Electric Slide in there. My memory is fading, but the Bobby Brown style crotch thrusts have me thinking this was after "My Prerogative".
Even back then, this would have been considered a pretty lame but time has actually been kind in that this is campy now. Campy, trapped in an 80's time warp, but undeniably catchy and awesome. And it's not like I can even come close to pulling off any of the dance moves shown here, particularly the leap frog into a spin. I'm lucky if I can skip a step going downstairs, let alone jump over someone. I've gotta say, rediscovering this song has been a pleasant surprise. And it's so funky fresh fly that its Tha Bomb. Like usual I'm about 20 years behind the trend. Word!
