oh, how the mighty have fallen.

so there i was, speeding home from work...i mean, i was obeying the speed limit to the digit....and the latest from the pussycat dolls (one day i will be toned enough to look hot running around in lingerie and then i will wander around in public wearing nothing but frederick's finest and a trench coat and will randomly stop in the middle of the sidewalk and break into song and then men will flock to me and throw themselves at me and....oh, uhm...i like the song a little. where was i?) ended, and wnok went to commercials and suddenly i heard something that almost caused me to run off the road.

biz markie.

yes, folks, the man who rapped/sang/whatever about the love of his life who was loving on someone else has sunk to a new low.

which reminds me- does anyone else recall a parody of that song? i was in middle school when it came out, and every time i heard "just a friend", i wind up singing

oh baby you
you got the disease
but you say it's just a rash
but you say it's just a rash....


it's okay- it's probably just me. (though my classmates started it- i was not nearly so culturally aware.)

anyway, biz is now rapping about pepto bismol.

i shit you not.....and apparently he's got that sort of thing under control, too......thanks to the new cherry flavor.

I love his version of "Energy" on the Schoolhouse Rock CD -- classic.

We used to sing:

You! you got a disease...
but you say it's just a rash,
and it's crawling up your ass!

I remember Biz Markie, but I can't remember any of his songs. Any chance you could post an audio file of you singing a medley of his greatest hits?

Larry said...

I would totally nail that song on karaoke. It might be the only one. I do however, also do a spot on rendition of rainbow connection by Kermit the Frog.

Biz Markie was able to use tongue kissing in a rap song. He is a GOD!

Kal said...

Larry's rendition of "Rainbow Connection" makes me want to rip his lips off so that he can't sing it anymore. He truly does sound like Kermit, though.

Larry said...

*Why are there so many, songs about rainbows, and what's on the other side...*

Eric said...

don't remember the parody, but i'll be humming along now, thanks!

Nice work if you can get it, I suppose.

Mossy Stone said...

Scary thing about Rainbow Connection: as a kid, I won a first place in a local music festival for singing that song. No, I didn't sing it like Kermit. ;-)

sojourning crow said...

duff....ok

Larry said...

Mossy, how did you win without the Kermit voice?
