Old School Fridays: Kid’s Groups
I’ve finally decided to do a weekly internet meme, one that is perfect for lots of the random things going through my head. It’s called Old School Fridays. Created by Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne, the goal is to post music that comes from some time before 1999 according to a group theme. This week, the theme is “Kid’s Groups.” Click to here to join in and be sure to check out other participants’ entries listed after the video.
The older I get the more I realize that there are some badass lil’ fresh kids out there and I simply was not one of them. So my take on this week’s theme is going to be bad fresh lil’ kids.
For some reason this song popped into my head as soon as the weather got warm and it keeps coming back. There’s something about the summer that brings the lost genre of booty bass to my mind. I know that makes me mentally ill, but please let me know if you remember The Puppies’ 1994 off-key jam “Funky Y-2C.” I’m sure these kids are either on the pole or still trying to break back into the business.
Ok to be fair, The Dogs were not a kid’s group, but do you remember this evil song and video from 1991, and these mean little children from “Your Mama’s On Crack Rock?” Really, what a thing to say!
Again I have to bend the rules. The Boyz weren’t generally fresh kids, but they played a foul group of youngsters called “Mice To Men” in their 1990 appearance on A Different World . Here, they perform “Crazy,” which was my JAM in fifth grade. I really let that tape rock til’ the tape popped. Watch until the end of the video to see the sort of sass that I’m now magically old enough to get from youngsters!
