Flashback Friday - Run-DMC - Peter Piper

Man, do I feel old. This song came out 25 years ago.

I saw the Jimmy Fallon/Justin Timberlake clip of the hip-hop medley they did backed by The Roots. Priceless.

One of the songs was this classic. Good times. Remember those huge glasses? I think they're coming back.

RIP Jam Master J.

Have a great weekend.

you know, that was back in the day when 10 year old girls in orange, tx didn't have much access to hiphop. if it wasn't top 40, i was out of luck. but i loved what little rap i could get my hands on. i was at the pool at the end of the summer and one of the lifeguards was playing peter piper on his jambox and i STOPPED IN MY TRACKS. that bare beat with the xylophone on top was like nothing i had ever heard. i found out who it was and begged my mom to buy me the tape (yes tape).

shortly after, 'it's tricky' blew up and we all had a little more hiphop in our small town lives.

and then, there was salt n pepa...but that's another story :)

Tracie - I know what you mean about the bare beat with the xylophone! It the thing I love most about the song.
