with some time to kill I am traveling through the world of YOUTUBE
this is what I came up with
some old school stuff from an old guy

Public Enemy
Run DMC

then some stuff from the dance floor...
M.A.R.S.: Pump Up the Volume
Eric B and Rakim: Paid in Full
SNAP: The Power

dam...

links don't work
I was going to listen to that beasties boys tune again
and the wrong song came up

as much as I dig Ofra Haza
it was not what I was looking to play

Don't forget The GrandMaster Flash.


Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah)
Uhraah!
Bass!

Ooh White, White
Ooh White, White
Ooh White, White

(Ooh White Lines) Vision dreams of passion

(Blowin’ through my mind) and all the while I think of you
(High price) a very strange reaction

(For us to unwind) the more I see, the more I do
(Something like a phenomenon) Baby!
(Tellin your body to come along, but white lines blow away)
(Blow! Rock it! Blow!)

Ticket to ride, white line highway
Tell all your friends, they can go my way

Pay your toll, sell your soul
Pound for pound costs more than gold

The longer you stay, the more you pay

My white lines go a long way
Either up your nose or through your vein

With nothin to gain except killin’ your brain

Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! (Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)
Blow!)

(Ahhh) Higher, baby
(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
(And don't ever come down! Freebase!)

Rang dang diggedy dang di-dang
Rang dang diggedy dang di-dang
Rang dang diggedy dang di-dang
Diggedy dang di-dang diggedy dang di-dang

(Pipeline) pure as the driven snow
Connected to my mind) and now I'm havin’ fun, baby!

(High price) it's getting kinda low

Cause it makes you feel so nice) I need some one-on-one, baby!

Don't let it blow your mind away) Baby!

And go into your little hideaway ‘cause white lines blow away)
(Blow! )

A million magic crystals, painted pure and white

A multi-million dollars almost overnight

Twice as sweet as sugar, twice as bitter as salt

And if you get hooked, baby, it's nobody else's fault, so don't do it!

Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)
Raah! (Blow!)

Ahhh) Higher, baby
Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
And don't ever come down! Freebase!)

Don’t you get too high) don’t you get too high baby!
(Turns you on) you really turn me on and on
(When you gonna come down) my temperature is risin’
(When the thrill is gone) no, I don’t want you to go

A street kid gets arrested, gonna do some time
He got out three years from now just to commit more crime
A businessman is caught with 24 kilos
He’s out on bail and out of jail
And that’s the way it goes
Raah!

(Kane! Sugar! Kane! Sugar! Kane!)

Athletes rejected, governors corrected
Gangsters, thugs and smugglers are thoroughly respected
The money gets divided
The women get excited
Now I’m broke and it’s no joke
It’s hard as hell to fight it, don’t buy it!

(Freeze! Haha ha ha! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)
Raah! (Blow!)

(Ahhh) Get higher, baby
(Ahhh) Get higher, girl!
(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!
C’mon!
Raah!

(White Lines) Vision dreams of passion
(Blowin’ through my mind) and all the while I think of you
(High price) a very strange reaction
(For us to unwind) the more I see, the more I do
(Something like a phenomenon) Baby!
(Tellin your body to come along, but white lines blow away)

Little Jack Horner sitting on the corner
With no shoes and clothes
This aint funny, but he took his money
And sniffed it up his nose

(Hey man, you wanna cop some blow?)
(Sure, what you got, dust, flakes or rocks?)
(I got China White, Mother of Pearl, Ivory Flake, What you need?)
(Well yeah, well let me check it out man, just let me get a freeze)
(Go ahead man, stuff I got should kill ya!)
(Yeah man th-that’s that’s raw, wuh)

(Freeze! Haha ha ha! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!
Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)

without a doubt.
Grand Master Flash

that was far cooler than the pop stuff I just listed...


the high school dances are my school were tragically cool with Grand Master Flash and Trouble Funk playing in between whatever were the pop tunes of the day

gwadzilla said...

after a little thought...

my chronology is a tad off

Grand Master Flash and Trouble Funk were of the High School era for me
the other listed stuff came later

it is all a blur

after re-reading these lyrics I can taste salty sweat and the cotton candy flavoring of a smoke machine

ah... the smoke machine
perhaps ranked higher than the strobe light for a high school dance special effect

I need to see if YOUTUBE has a PLAY ALL function!
