Rap Recall Friday

"Gonna Make You Sweat" (Everybody Dance Now) - C&C Music Factory

This song is featured on every dance mix advertised on Logo; I'm pretty sure it's contracted somewhere. Costuming is as confusing as ever for the period,* the turtleneck and blazer on the lead singer is particularly worrying; he looks like BD Wong's character from Father of the Bride part II.

Silliness aside, this is still an awesome dance hit and it's totally, unashamedly on my iPod. The video is fairly standard, like three and a half minutes of the In Living Color Fly Girls with some "meet the band" cut-scenes. I'm glad they moved away (somewhat) from the literal "Factory" theme present in "Things That Make You Go Hmm" (which is worth checking out for as long as you can stand it; cheesetastic, but the dance moves are pretty fly).

* Yes, I referred to the 1990s as a period. I hate me, too.

Ahh the fashion of the early 90's. I had more than one friend in high school who'd had their hood ornament stolen by some jackass who wanted it as a pendant. Also such a shame that they felt the need to have the skinny girl lip sync the part by the Weather Girl whose name I'm struggling to recall....If only this morning it had been Raining Men. :o)

p.s. I still adore the button fly Levis. I can't help it. :o)
