Ah yes, the late '80s Hip-Hop.
(makes me glad for the '90s  ::) )

Back then I liked

Push It - Salt N' Pepa
Bust a Move - Young MC

They're still Ok, but I like these a little better...

Buffalo Stance - Neneh Cherry
Me Myself and I - De La Soul


Hip-Hop Hurray
:D

"Rapper's Delight".My older sister got the last copy of the album in the city and she knelt by our old-fashioned stereo putting the needle back on the record until she had every word to the extended version written down.There was a time when i could rhyme off the whole thing but these days i need the song to be playing as i go.I still get excited when i hear it..otherwise,lots of other great choices here too.."It Takes Two","Push It","Bust a Move",and "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash should be included  :)

Well, from this list I'd choose "It Takes Two" but if you had "Other" as a choice, I'd surely go with "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow.

Dont like much of this kinda music, but I really like Bust A Move.  Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers played the bass part on that song.  That bass part pretty much made the song a hit, but supposedly Flea didnt get much recognition or $$$ for it.

I selected "Rapper's Delight"... I don't actually recall it from the 80's but I heard it a couple of years ago and that song is just all that.

I'll throw a couple more out there for y'all:

"Girls" by Egyptian Lover

"The Real Roxanne" Roxanne with UTFO

"Space Cowboy" or "Pack Jam" by Jonzun Crew

"Jam On It" by Newcleus

"Get It Girl" by The 2 Live Crew

I don't know if you classify these "hip-hop" but throw in:

"Rockit" by Herbie Hancock

"Atomic Dog" George Clinton

Actually, it wasn't the sound was locally around for at least a year prior to the song's release and never really liked in the neighborhoods that produced the sound. It was too poppy, they felt.


It was by UTFO :)


Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
