I feel the same way about the great hip hop trilogy:
Whoomp, There it is
Whoot, There it is
Whoomp, (Merry Christmas) There it is

I can't get enough of 'em!

Don't You Want Me was the first song I think I liked enough to know the words to. It was also on the first album I ever had (excepting Seaseme Street and Star Wars whatnot) and was the reason my folks bought me the record
(K-Tel's "Blast Off").

That's it.


What--can't I express something sincere for once? Fuckers.
