On time, in your mind you see
You gotta boogie to your best ability
You gotta funk it up until it knocks you down
And when you're funkin' up, be sure to pass it around
Jam on it
Jam on and on, on and on it
And if you're feelin' like you wanna dance all night
They go on ahead and flaunt it
- Newcleus, "Jam on it"
I've loved this song for over 20 years. When the breakdancing fad hit in the 80's my brother got a tape of classic breakdancing music and "Jam on it" was included. I wasn't interested in breakdancing, but I loved the wikki, wikki, wikki. I forgot about it for a decade and then found it again in DJ Z-trip's Uneasy Listening bootleg mash-up album on track 6. I heard it over the weekend at the Long Beach Grand Prix and this morning, I finally found it.
It's great to hear one of my childhood favorites in its entirety.
