step off, I'm doin' the hump!

I Just Like It:  "The Humpty Dance" by Digital Under-ground

I heard this on the radio while driving home this afternoon from a meeting with two people who are marrying in June and was reminded why I like it so much.  It's all about "gettin' busy" no matter what you look like--Shock G says of himself he looks funny, he's too skinny and his nose is big, and calls out women who are fat, saying he likes girls with the boom--and that the dance itself is so idiosyncratic "no two people will do it the same."  It's a song about being who one is and reveling in it, and I especially love the closing call outs to "black people...white people...Puerto Ricans...Samoaans..."
