A Song That No One Would Expect I Would Love

I have a cd in my car that I made in 2000.  It’s titled, in black Sharpie across the disc, Jen’s Crap Mix 5.  I have all the other Crap Mixes upstairs in my box of cds that I’ve kept because I’m old and kermudgenly and prefer cds over the other newfangled media, but Crap Mix 5 is by far my favourite.  My Crappiest, if you will.  Songs like Hit ‘Em High (The Monstars Anthem) (yes, the song from that Looney Tunes movie that Michael Jordan starred in) (what? the song’s awesome), Survivor by Destiny’s Child, and Sex Bomb by Tom Jones.  No, seriously, this is how mixed tapes are supposed to be made.

But my favourite song on the cd, the one I skip straight to 9 times out of 10, listening to the rest after I’ve had my fill, is Party Up by DMX.  It’s a song that I can’t help but car dance to, every time.  Car dancing is when you’re doing everything that could be considered dancing, bouncing in your seat, bopping your head, even doing weird, jerky things with your arms, while driving.  Easy.  If I gotsta bring it to you cowards, then it’s gonna be quick.

Sorry.
