"Rap" the white guy can "dance" to

The Top 10 Rap Songs White People Love | catsandbeer.com:

When these songs come on, White People look at each other and say “Awwww yeah” or “Hell yeah” and are compelled to sing along. Sometimes there’s also a corresponding stupid dance move.

Well I have to admit, at number 9, “The Humpty Dance” is one of my favorites (and a karaoke staple). The author is right too — Humpty Hump/Shock G is a great MC and its too bad people don’t get into the _whole_ album. Number one on the list is “Baby Got Back”, which I will again plead guilty to. I can’t extend as much love to the entire album on which it resides, though.

Further down there’s a write in vote for DJ Kool’s “Let me clear my throat”. Definitely seems to be a favorite of your average Dallas frat boy, though I have to say its really a quite good cut on a not-horrible album. “Getting Jiggy Wit It” is also a write-in, which I feel totally guilty for owning. I keep it on my iPod as penance.

  1. Adam – there is no need for you to feel bad about liking these songs – in fact, quite the contrary – you should embrace them with the same intensity that you would US Bonds and Fresca.

  2. Well on the one hand, what’s not to love about US Bonds. Especially if you’re China. On the other hand, there is nothing to love about drinking bark _aka_ Fresca. So in this metaphor, I guess Biz Markie is a US Bond and House of Pain is Fresca.
