Tune in Tuesdays: 90's Edition


This weekly meme is hosted by Ginger at GReads and is meant to showcase another passion: music. Each week you can post an old or new song so that it gains more interest or is discovered by new ears. So let's help Ginger spread our love of music. Oh and don't forget to submit a link to your post over on Ginger’s site by clicking on the banner.



A couple of weeks ago Ginger decided to change up her Tune in Tuesdays meme by restricting it to songs released in the 90's.  I for one love it.  I'm also ecstatic that my cast is off and that I have enough mobility in my wrist to be able to type again.  Woo to the hoo!  I decided to showcase some of my favorite 90's hip hop songs this week.  Hope you enjoy!



The Humpty Dance by Digital Underground




Jump Around by House of Pain




Sabotage by Beastie Boys
 
True Story:  One of my departments recreated this video for a yearly Halloween skit competition we do here in the office.  It was EPIC.  We ended up winning first place.

  6. Jump Around always reminds me of Mrs. Doubtfire and adolescent boys jumping around all crazy-like at splash parties at the pool.

    I have a soft spot for a few Beastie Boys songs and Sabotage is one of them. Good picks :)

  10. @Liza - Me too! I loved that they went with that whole 70's cop show vibe.

    @Amanda - Thanks chica. It feels good to be back.

    @Ginger - LOL! That song never fails to make me, um, jump around.

    @Neri - Me too! I love rediscovering some of my favorites from back in the day.

    @Sara Bee - LMAO! Us rap girls gotta stick together. ;) Kudos for being able to sing it on Rock Band. Beastie Boys songs are a lot trickier than they seem.

    @Marissa - LOL! Ms. Doubtfire? Really? Is it in the movie?

    @Smash - LOL! Todd doesn't like the Beastie Boys?!?! That's almost unforgivable!

    @LitzaLou - It reminds of a lot of school dances too. That's cool that your sister's dance team included it as part of their routine. Bet they had the crowd moving.

    @Julie - LMFAO! I'm sorry! Glad you still love me though. ;) Hey maybe you can play it for the kids and wear them out.

    Thank you all for stopping by. It's much appreciated!
