Musical palate cleanser, we don’t have the time for psychological romance edition

Don’t ask me the how or why of this, but Cameo’s “Word Up” earwormed its way into my group’s collective consciousness this past weekend, becoming the unofficial theme song of the trip.

Here’s the released music video, from back in the day when MTV ruled the world and patent leather codpieces were in style:

Sounds like victory.

    I have this on my ipod, and had it hooked up to the pa system at my daughter’s middle school basketball game. They were listening to it an hour or so before the game as they warmed up. At halftime the announcer hit the button and word up blared through the gym. It was hilarious watching those tight ass private school parents try to dance.

    Earworm has been spread successfully Senator. I feel it is my duty to pass it on to friends and coworkers today.

    Does that mean patent leather codpieces aren’t STILL in style? Uh oh.

      Can they really ever go out of style? Patent leather codpieces have long made a bright and shiny fashion statement with the breathtaking touch that no polishing is needed (and if someone feels the urge to polish, it is optional not necessary).

    Reminds me of Rupert’s in the ATL circa late 80′s, site of the old Disco Kroger. Live band could really play the hits. May it RIP.

    I actually kinda dig this song, and it quickly got put in rotation after 20+ years of never hearing it/thinking about it a month or so back. The Korn version isn’t bad either.
