I listen to three different morning shows on the radio as I drive to work every day. One station has a dj spinning every Friday from 8-9 am and I love it because it totally pumps me up for the day. He usually plays old school jams (awesome) and one day, a caller requested Snap’s Rhythm Is A Dancer. One of the show’s hosts, who is in his early 20s, had never heard of the song before. I just about drove my car into a pole when I heard that shocking news.
I must be really fucking old if a song that was insanely popular when I was a kid isn’t even on this guy’s radar.
90s dance music remains amazing. And hearing this song brings me back to when I was twelve, finishing grade seven and entering high school, simultaneously excited and scared of starting something new.
This song is also the perfect ode for my friend, Amy, of Kimchi Mom, for whom I’m guest posting today. This lady is kick ass. I met her years ago through our Sunday Supper group and it’s been an absolute pleasure getting to know her through her blog and on social media. Everything she makes is delicious (like her spam ramen burger, my fave), most of what she cooks has a Korean twist as an homage to her heritage, and she’s hilarious. And incredibly limber. I know this because I finally got to meet her in person last month at the Food & Wine Conference in Orlando, Florida, and Ames knows how to throw down.
