View Full Version : Back when I was but a calf...

04-10-2010, 09:26 PM
I was rooting around for stuff in my basement and found a tape: Snap - World Power. So, like any red-blooded American, I decided to use up some bandwidth and listen on Youtube instead.

I don't remember the video, but I must have watched it plenty. Video's really dumb. The music isn't as awful as I remember.

I remember a stream of the worst obscenities in this song, and I remember thinking the crackhead sounded cool. Now I think the crackhead sounds like a fucking crackhead, and I can't find the swears...is this a cleaned up version or is my memory faulty?
I used to crank that in my room. I don't know how my parents tolerated it.

I don't think I understood the "hard as Chinese math" line back then. Why would anyone ever say "opala"? I know I never knew what the lady was saying at the end after the bit about little miss Muffet...so imagine my surprise as I was listening and realized they were reciting the Andrew Dice Clay bit? Along came a spider, sat down beside her, and said "Hey, what's in the bowl, bitch?"
Additionally, my cousin had a neighbor named Amy who was almost the same age as me and I wanted her. Not because she was hot, just because she was breathing. When the verse about having sex with Amy played I couldn't stop thinking of her. Now I can't remember what she looked like other than that she wasn't very attractive.

:rofl2: How do you feel? I feel black! Yo yo yo yo yo G yo G, where's da bass?
Oh, hey, there's a Led Zeppelin sample. Cool. Come to think of it, there was a synth solo that I think came from a Pink Floyd song in one of the songs posted above. (still listening) Oh hey, there's another Zeppelin sample! Well, I thought that stream of obscenities might have been in this song, but it wasn't.

...and of course, how can you listen to Snap and not listen to a C+C Music Factory song?

LOL, this just turned up:

That's so awful that I couldn't listen through it.

That one wouldn't be so awful if they just sped up the tempo by about 30%.

Retro, dude!

The birth of the modern douche?


If anyone posts Boyz II Men in this thread... :ban:

Fools be talking about 80's & 90's without mentioning Tone Loc?!? Wonder if this thread should be included in the wtf?!? thread...

Tone Loc = WIN! He didn't come to mind when I stumbled on these lame old cassette tapes.

:hmm: I wasn't going for a general purpose 80s rap/"R&B"/dance thing here, I was going for cheese that's actually not that bad, but since Tone Loc came in and kept it real we might as well have some kickass Fat Boys.
