trust tree.

i'll be honest. work & vacation has been kickin my ass lately.

no time for anything.

luckily, a good friend of ours (and loyal hhk'er), van, has stepped up and been so nice as to help me out with todays wex wednesdays. what's that, van? i'm talking too much? ok, fine, go ahead then....

What's crack-a-lackin'? It's Van the Man doing a fill-in spot for DJ Weezy on Wex's Wednesdays. I feel like I'm on stage with Run DMC getting to post on the HHK blog! Here's my topic, now let's see who will step up and list something.

So I'm walking home from work the other night, listening to my iPod and what should happen to pop up in the shuffle mix but "Rollin'" by Limp Bizkit. (Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about!) And that got me thinking, wouldn't that make a great Wex's Wednesdays topic, or a funny one at least? List some jams on your iPod that might be considered wack, cheesy, horrible, etc. by the general population, but ones you might kind of dig even though no one else does.

It's all right to admit to the guilty pleasures. We're all family here! Aside from the Limp Bizkit joint, here's a couple of mine:

1) "Automatic" by the Pointer Sisters: This is the ultimate '80s non-rap, breakdancing-friendly track to me. It takes me back to Sunshine skating rink in Mobile with my crew, the Floormasters. Ahhh, memories!

2) "That's That Shit", Snoop and R. Kelly: I usually hate rap/R&B collabos, but this is definitely my favorite.

3) "Funky Beat", Whodini: My dream is to do this song at HHK!

Who will take the challenge?

This topic is so tight that I had to post from a blackberry as I sit in a train between madrid and seville viewing the spanish countryside. I have many doozies in my ipod that would qualify for this list but let me leave it at milli vanilli. Hola and adios los muchachos. Kick culos on friday. Wish I cxould be there.

Geez, I have too many to list and I think I could win this competition. But in my defense, most of these songs are for the beat, not the lyrical content.

1. Gypsy Woman - Crystal Waters
Hey, even T.I. sampled this for a track off of King.

2. Groove is in the Heart - Dee Lite
As a fan of ATCQ, I had to support my man Q-Tip on this track

3. You Can Call Me Al - Paul Simon
Funniest video ever and commentary about hooking up with a fat chick kinda like a Redman video.

4. Various Songs by Culture Club
Back in the 80's, someone in my family thought it was good idea to give me a bunch of Culture Club 45's when I got my first record player. I eventually scratched all of them trying to dj but they're all stuck in my head as part of my childhood.

Enjoy by Janet Jackson. I play this song all the time and unless you go roller skating then nobody seems to know this record. I also look kinda silly driving down the block singing to myself.....

Wow. I win.

i just went through the artists list, cause i know i got some awful music on my shit.
I'm like ok, that Project Pat album is pretty bad... then there's the Mike Jones double album (with the chopped & screwed versions of course)...then i'm like oh shit Jimmy Buffett?! how'd you get on here?
then i find it.
there is no worse song than this in the history of music, and i got it. and its the extended live version...

John Cougar Mellencamp

"This is ooouuuurrrr Country!!!"

thats right, beat it.

oh, and now that my credibility is permanently destroyed let me just also say that i have that whole DeeeLite album, kev, and its not even in the top 10 worst albums i own. i actually kinda like it.

I recently ran out of space on my iPod, so I had to delete alot of my 80's pop, but here are a few random joints that don't "fit in" with the rest of my playlist:

"Midas Touch" - Midnight Star
"Oh Sheila" - Ready For The World
"We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off" - Jermaine Stewart

Had I not just cleaned house, Id have some more gems. . . (The Outfield used to be on my pizzod, too!)

Oh yeah. . . I forgot I still have the entire R. Kelly catalog on my iPod so songs like "She's Got That Vibe," and "I Like The Crotch On You" definitely would fall into this discussion.

Guilty Pleasures don't exist. If you like it, it ain't a guilty pleasure. BUT i'll bite. I guess the below track counts, but I still bump this w/o a trace of irony from time to time. The first minute alone has 812 parts that could be sampled (And yes, I know about De La, but that was mostly vocals).

I could explain why, but it's not worth it...I have "Eye in the Sky" by the Alan Parsons Project.

"Holiday Rap" by MC Miker G and DJ Sven.

"Working For The Weekend" by Loverboy.

"Angel Of Death" by Slayer --- this one needs explaining. It's a classic thrash tune, and kicks off one of the best albums ever ("Reign In Blood"). And, it's all about the Nazi doctors at Auschwitz, where my great-grandparents were murdered. I find the song horrifying and totally awesome and still horrifying. "Six million ways to achieve... the Holocaust!" That lyric always gives me a chill that's a combination of shock, agony, hilarity, and exhilaration. Definitely a bit of guilt in there, even while I'm banging my head.

Oh, and I'll see you dudes at month's end -- I'm home in Vancouver for a brief visit.
