Man I miss music like this. Remember when hip hop was…intelligent?

If you know me, you should know what video this is. It’s the only one TRULY appropriate for the season.
For once it’s not a music video. But if you follow college basketball, or are from michigan, this is one of the most memorable moments in college sports history. Final seconds of a NCAA finals game agains North Carolina and Chris Webber calls a time out…except UofM doesn’t have any timeouts left. NC was ahead by two with 20 seconds left. All that was needed was a two pointer to put the game into overtime. But that time out was a techincal foul, which sent NC to the line and sealed Webbers place in NCAA history.
Gotta love those thinly veiled offers for sex (gotta love even more that she calls her cooch her “Mercedes”…I guess it’s better than her calling her Pinto) . My sister had this cassette tape, and, way back then, we actually thought she was offering him a ride in her car. How could two elementary school kids (well, I guess my sister was technically in middle school since this was about when she was in 6th grade) understand that this wasn’t about picking up a cute hitchhiker?
Now to answer the question “why so many videos?” Simple: I’m a lazy bastard that doesn’t always want to sit and think about what to write. So this is my easy way to do fill some blog space until I am in the mood to actually think.
For real…WTF were we thinking with the clothes? The shoulder pads that made you look like a yield sign? What’s with the stiff ass “interpretive dancing”? And can I express how happy I am that L.A. Reid no longer has that jacked up haircut? And that Babyface no longer looks like he’s starving (Lord that man is FINE now, but he needed some help back then)? Was Carlos really rockin a gold tooth? Up front no less? Why did the drummer look bored and why did the bass player look like he was about ready to slap the taste out of someone’s mouth?
All that horrible 80’s stuff aside, you still can’t beat this song when it comes to making a mix tape for your honey.
