90's Hit Parade #62

Digital Underground - Doowutchyalike

What's great about this song is how it totally captures the spirit of pre-Run DMC hip hop without aping the sound. It fits perfectly in with the sound of 1990, even as it makes you feel the heat of a summer night block party c. 1981. And yes, it's a hotter track than "Humpty Dance" (which is still a great track). It is strange how "Humpty Dance" endures, though. I would never have expected that track to be a cultural staple (at least among white folks) 20 years later, when most people have long forgotten "Mama Said Knock You Out."
