yeah, i've heard "lean back" and "move ya body" at least once an hour on hot 97 for the last two months.

jess, Monday, 26 July 2004 19:32 (twelve years ago) Permalink

what's to make fun of??

how about "welcome back"?? maybe it'll be a smoooth summer.

vahid (vahid), Monday, 26 July 2004 19:34 (twelve years ago) Permalink

every summer should somehow involve "Be Thankful For What You've Got" by William DeVaughn

Gear! (Gear!), Monday, 26 July 2004 19:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I just went to a car show and got to meet Fat Joe! Him and the Terror Squad did Lean Back and I got to watch from backstage, it was pretty fun....I caught myself doing the Lean Back but then stopped myself because I felt like a dork.

Clipse and Loon also performed. Clipse were really great. Loon was really terrible...he's the worst live performer I've ever seen in my life. I got my picture taken with The Clipse.

M@tt He1geson (Matt Helgeson), Monday, 26 July 2004 19:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

this summer we should all listen to tropicalia and rocksteady and smooth, unhurried jams like "hey ma" and "this can't be life" and "welcome back" and that song with sleepy brown in it about steppin out and so on and so forth.

vahid (vahid), Monday, 26 July 2004 19:37 (twelve years ago) Permalink

the answer to your question vahid is in the email address of my last post

jess, Monday, 26 July 2004 19:38 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i like it though because it doesn't take much dancing talent to do...that's good for me.

M@tt He1geson (Matt Helgeson), Monday, 26 July 2004 19:39 (twelve years ago) Permalink

yeah i thought white folks would be racing to embrace it actually

jess, Monday, 26 July 2004 19:42 (twelve years ago) Permalink

"Float on" of course.

dan rukas (dan rukas), Monday, 26 July 2004 19:43 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Also, when I was getting my picture taking with the Clipse they kept putting their hands palms-forward towards the camera jutting forward at a 45-degree angle, so I was self-concious (hi kanye) and did the same thing so i would look cool, but then after I saw the picture later I realized they were doing the "V" Vulcan Dr. Spock hand sign....Star Trek=Star Trak! I thought that was pretty funny because I was trying to be cool and they were doing the nerdiest hand sign ever!

I thought the Clipse was really cool...they come off so laconic and stern in their videos, but live they were really fun, they were just up there having a good time....One time Pusha (or Malice I don't know who's who) pulled off a really fast line then looked back towards the DJ with a big grin and bugged out his eyes and did a mock brow-wiping motion and puffed out his cheeks in a "WHEW! that was hard to get through motion)....Rosco P Coldchain was there too and he's really really goofy in person, all arms and legs and was wearng a huuuuge oversized lime green polo shirt that looked like tent on his stick body...he was runnign around just making mischief thorughout the whole set....Grabbed his nuts all the time.

What's that song that uses the same loop the Fugees used in "Ready Or Not" back in the day? I hear that fucking song ten times a god damn day.

nickalicious (nickalicious), Monday, 26 July 2004 20:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah and uh "Overnight Celebrity".

nickalicious (nickalicious), Monday, 26 July 2004 20:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Actually, I've heard "Take Me Out" at many (very) different clubs, but "Turn Me On" is probably the anthem on the West Coast right now - that or something by Ursher or maybe "Culo".

"I Don't Wanna Know" by Mario Winans ft. Enya and P Diddy... it's a great song, but not a SUMMER ANTHEM because it's a dark, brooding ballad.

"Move Ya Body" is the biggest one so far I think, though I hope "Babycakes" will be huge.

Sonny A. (Keiko), Monday, 26 July 2004 22:38 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Last time I saw muchMusic in a hotel room, which was the end of June, I guess, in Prince George, the only video I saw repeated(3 or 4 times, in fact) was 'The Reason', by Hoobastank. I had to look it up when I got home, because I didn't dare to believe that a band would have such a laughably bad name and, if that indeed was the name, they were totally humourless gits.

It's a horrible song. Maybe the least-fun summer hit song ever. Why do the kids hate fun?

derrick (derrick), Monday, 26 July 2004 22:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

HOOBASTANK sounds like they should play sublime influenced rasta rap metal

this is the hottest shit in texas right now. Swishahouse representing an undie track that crushes anything by the majors. fuck everything on the radio, I pity the rest of the country because they are sleeping on this.

it has been sort of a slow summer so far though. i think we need a little more "all falls down" and a little less "jesus walks".

pop hit of the summer is girls aloud's The Show.

great summer so far..

may, Tuesday, 27 July 2004 14:48 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i have said it before -- i think that "move ya body" would be even bigger if an a cappella had been released. that was just waiting to be bootlegged.

of course, it could be huge and i wouldn't know - i don't have MTV, don't listen to radio, and almost never leave my house. i'm not much a popist role model.

I shrug a bit re "Despacito" becaus Latin radio in Miami has lots of songs that sound like this, but if takes Biebs to give'em a national profile then bully for Daddy Yankee
