    I need your help!

    I decided to make a mix CD for my wife, including some of those classic rap/r&b/dance songs from the mid 80's to the mid 90's. I also added some of the, well, funnier ones from more recently, such as "Milkshake" from Kelis and "Get Busy" from Sean Paul. Only problem is I can't remember all the greats, or at least the names of the groups responsible for them.

    So, pitch in and help me come up with a list of those indespensable "hits!"

    So far, I've got these:

    The two mentioned above
    -Run DMC's Mary, Mary; My Adidas; You be Illin' and Run's House
    -LL's I Need Love
    -Ice, Ice baby
    -Me So Horny
    -Bust a Move
    -Push It

    Give me some more to add to the list!

    Da Butt-can't remember who did that classic.

    Also Funky Cold Medina

    singer from my 80's Top 40 band and I just played a game of "And do you remember....?"

    There was some funny stuff back then.

    C&C Music Factory. I just had that on for old time sake a month ago or so.

    how about...

    Cathy Dennis with D'Mob "C'mon And Get My Love" or solo with "Touch Me (All Night Long)" "Too Many Walls"

    or

    Lisa Stansfield's "All Around The World"

    hmmm...

    Arrested Development even?


    and who were the trippy "thinking man's" rap group.... I just flashed backto a video but the name and tune escapes me. I'll post again if I remember

    What about "Groove is in the Heart" by Dee Light? Didn't that have Bootzilla on the bass?

    Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" is always a gooder, along with one of my personal favourites, "How Bizarre" by OMC.

    This might be the most awesome mix tape ever!

    Or CD... whatever.

    Ace of Base - All That She Wants
    Wrecks N Effect - Knock-N-Boots
    Kris Kross - Jump
    Rob Base - Joy And Pain
    MC Hammer - Can't Touch This
    Information Society - Pure Energy
    3rd Bass - Pop Goes The Weasel

    I could go on....

    It's funny that you say that: I'm actually teaching Hammer's son how to play percussion this school year. I had no idea until sometime last summer that he'd been in my class before for other music as well.

    Great list so far guys! Of course, this is gonna cost me, but the giggles are worth it!
