Tha Jam

Music. We all love it. Personally, I don't know where my life would be without it. There are some songs that motivate you. Some songs will make you sad. And then there are some songs that will MOVE you. When I say MOVE you, I don't mean a song that will make you tap your feet or bob your head. Nor do I mean the song that will make you wave your hands in the air...and wave'em like you just don't care. LOL. Today's vibe is...that joint that will get you on the dance floor!! The song that you will knock folk OVER on your way to the dance floor. And for those who are wondering...yes...I can dance.

My song is "Shake What Ya Momma Gave Ya" by Poison Clan. If you've never heard it before...I'm surprised. The song came out when I was in college in the early 90s. There's nothing special about the lyrics (kinda nasty and misogynistic) and the beat was that "Miami Bass" that was popular back then. But when it came on at a party, I was on the dance floor! And I will say that I've "sweat-ed out many perms on that song alone." And if you don't believe me then you can come to Atlanta and I'll sweat your perm out on that song! LOL.

What's the song that you have to dance to. Let's have some fun with this...


Mizrepresent said...

Since i'm in the ATL, i guess i'll be FIRST!

Man, i can't think of the name of the song...but it will have me jumping up from the beat...

"Y'all want this party started right...y'all want this party started quickly right...SET IT OFF"

have a great day!

Brad said...

mizrepresent...the song was "set it off". lol. By Strife (sp).

My jam is "You got's ta Chill" EPMD. That intro just let's you know that beat is COMING.

12Kyle...don't know if I can drop a second one on you. But this intro will also get me up...

LOVE AND HAPPINESS......Something that'll make ya do wrong.....Make ya do right.

Hmmmm...takes me back to high school when Foxy jumped on the scene with "Get Off". Now that was a song that would straighten your Jheri Curl!

Welcome to the net bruh!

Rezidl said...

12Kyle....I was just thinking about this driving to work listening to Steve Harvey showcasing Whitney Houston. Music moves me and I digg that...always has. Wish I had been somehow connected to the industry though I cannot sing a lick.

....the groove joint has always been "Always and Forever"....makes you do that slowdrag alternating hip-sway with your eyes closed move you learned from your nasty uncle...

....the uptempo piece is LL's "Don't Call it a Comback".....I been here for years if ya'll forgot!!!!

12kyle said...

@ Mizrepresent
Set It Off is a very good jam. And people will knock you down when that song comes on. Didn't know that you were an ATLien? Welcome 2 tha Planet!

@ Brad
Leave it to Brad to give TWO songs when I asked for one! LOL. Can't front on EPMD. Very tight

@ Sojourner G
I remember that one! Every time I hear that song it reminds me of the house parties that my parents used to have when I was a kid. Thanks for coming thru to tha Planet. That poetry that you're doing is the bird flu. LOL. I'ma put you on my blog crew.

@ Rezidl
We all can sing...we all just don't sound good. LOL. Always and Forever was the jam that you slow dragged to in 8th grade and felt the girls booty while you sang in her ear.

Opinionated Diva said...

Let me clear my throat uh huh uh huh!

To be honest...I LUV to dance and will dance to anything with a banging beat. I'll get pissed off later that the words are degrading to woman...but at the moment when I'm dancing...I don't give a youknowwhat!

I have left the club walking with just one shoe on...because that's how much my feet hurt. Funny thing is...I never feel the ache while I'm dancing! LOL

Brad said...

Yo Dit, You not the boss of me.

L. Renee' said...

The song that gets my butt up and on the floor whether it is in my kitchen or the bedroom is Frankie Beverly "OH OH OH,...ya'll know the rest. Getcha everytime. LOL

12kyle said...

@ Opinionated Diva
This is so true. Most of the times we don't care about the words...just the beats. LOL. You left the club with one shoe? Wow! Did you sweat your perm out that night? LOL

@ Brad
LOL. I see you have a problem with following instructions...that's all

@ LRenee
Before I Let Go. I don't think I've ever been to a party or a club and NOT heard this song. LOL

Trish said...

Maybe you all can help me, cause as long as Ive heard this song, I never knew the Title or Artist, but back when I was a house head.
the Lyrics are....

"I cant stand it,
You cant stand it,
Is this the way we both planned it, yeah!"

Has a hot house beat.
Gets me shaking a tail feather everytime. lol !!

Brad said...

Trish, now house music is a whole different Oprah. There are very few good house songs that DON'T make me dance.

But that being said.....don't know of the one you're talkin about.

Remember "Break for Love"?

Trish said...

Yes, Brad I agree house is a whole different breed now, but Im talking about the back in the day, good house music.
Loved "Break for Love" &
"Jack Benny"

Eb the Celeb said...

PrettyBlack said...

Horney lil devil-ice cube-listen to that song...nuff said.

There can't be just one song.

12kyle said...

@ Trish
I'm not sure about house music. I'll ask Weja Priest. He's the only house head that I know.

@ Eb the Celeb
Don't knock my song. Like I said, I'll sweat a perm out on that joint. LOL

Get Me Bodied has all of the women running to the dance floor. The extended version is real tight. That's one of those songs where you have move out the way and let the ladies do their thing.

@ MsPuddin
Whitney? LOL.

This Is How We Do It...LMAO! That is funny. I can't front...when it was was the ish.

@ Opinionated Diva
You are funny.

@ PrettyBlack
Bia Bia? Don't tell me that you're in the club "throwin 'bows" lol

Horney lil devil-a Ice Cube classic. I just figured you're a gangsta chick. You have to be! I like it.

TravelDiva said...

Anyone who likes anything by Montell Jordan is......I ain't hatin' today.....let's move on.

12kyle said...

@ TravelDiva
I'm not gonna blame you for your entries. It's Brad's fault. LOL. Whuchuknowbout Da Rockwilder??? That was my favorite joint off the Blackout cd

@ Rezidl
Doesn't PrettyBlack remind you of somebody that we went to school with?

I saw Montell perform that song with a live band at a lounge for 20 minutes straight. No lie. I was like..."I wish he'd do another damn song." Then, I remembered that he didn't have any other songs. LOL

Anonymous said...

Being in South Florida when all those "shake what ya mama gave" songs came out, they will always get me on the floor bending it over and shakin' like a salt shaker.

But the song that gets me on the dancefloor is "Sim simma who got the keys to my beamer," or "Murder She Wrote."

Sorry for violating the one song rule.

12kyle said...

It's ok. It's Brad's fault. LOL

Reggae music will definitely get people on the floor.

Brad said... don't have to apologize to Kyle. Let him know he's not the boss of you. LMAO.

I hate this stupid blog anyway...I only respond cause he paid me. I hate Kyle too.

Who am I kidding....I can't stay mad at you. Minnie complete me.

Aight how about this one for slow james.

"Girl you know I..I...I..Love You. Know matter what you do!!!"

eclectik said...


Poison Clan!?
You brought that WAAAAAAAAAAY back!
I'm impressed off top

I cant dance a lick,sluck or slurp

I'll get involved to My uzi weighs a ton though LOL


12kyle said...

@ e
Poison Clan was a beast. PE is a good call. I remember that song like it was yesterday.

Boogie said...

I'm kinda disappointed that NO ONE thought of THIS song....'cuz whenever I was in Atlanta, and I went to OSS (Ol' Skool Saturday), and they played "Groove Me" by Guy, for some reason, as SOON as I heard Cowboy mix it in, I went into 'video' mode and started dancing like I was on the set (don't act like I'm the ONLY one either....). Something about that joint just made me get busy on the floor........

....other joints (and I KNOW you said 'one' song Mighty Mouse, but you'll be aight....)......

and I know I'm going back on this one......but,

"Payback" James Brown

"One More Chance" (either version) Biggie

"Before I Let Go" Maze feat. Frankie Beverly

"Southern Hospitality" Ludacris ("tho' dem bows....")

@ Brad......if you wanna go for a slow joint......I see your Lenny Williams and raise you an "Adore" or "Scandalous" by Prince

The Jaded NYer said...

most of the songs people already commented on will def. get me out my seat, 'cause I'm hardly ever in my seat.

but if you really, really want me to get up and sweat out my do, American music won't do it for me. You gotta give me some old, deep country merengue with that classic soca beat, preferably by Juan Luis Guerra... then you'll really see who The Jaded NYer is:

12kyle said...

@ Jaded NYer
What is your ethnicity if you don't mind me asking? I've heard about some of the music that you're talking about.

The Jaded NYer said...

my people are Dominican. you'd know it if you heard us speak lol!

12kyle said...

@ Jaded NYer
Dominican? Cool! My people are from the South. And you'd know it as soon as they opened their mouths. LOL
