Flashback Friday: Name That Tune – March 13, 2009

by World Wide Ed on Friday, March 13, 2009

(*announcer’s voice*) And NOW!!! Introducing another game to add to our WWE’s Flashback Friday repertoire…

It’s…

… *drumroll* …

Name…

That…

TUUUUUNE!

Somebody stop me! Can we all tell who’s in marketing here? Ha!

OK, so hurr’s the idea. I’ll type in a snippet of lyrics from an old school song (most likely a local Hawaiian kine jam) and you try to guess what song it is and who sang/performed it. Include your memories of that time in your life for bonus points too. Eh, no cheat and Google da buggah k?

The lyric teaser and my personal memory is as follows. Take a guess as to what the song is and add your memories too k? Shoots!

Bend your back and your knees,
Stretch out your hands like a racing jockey

Hearing this song recently made me laugh and reminisce. It was back in high school when some of us basketball players caught a ride with our coach to a game. I think it was an interisland game in Kauai if I remember correctly. So this song: ________ by ________ came on the radio and our coach (the driver) blasted it and proceeded to actually do the jockey move dance while driving! We all cracked up and joined in with the jockey move with our coach and the music. Not necessarily the safest thing on earth, but it was hilarious!

Needless to say, we carried that energy over to our game where we wiped the floor with our opponents, showing them our jockey move. OK, so I don’t necessarily remember if we won 😛 , but it does make for a happier ending doesn’t it? 😉

What about you gang? Can you Name That Tuuuune (and artist) and share your memories of this time (early 90s)? Holla!

Happy Aloha and Flashback Friday y’all!

Actually depending on the album, they called it different things. I’ve seen any of the following:

* Rub-A-Dub Medley: You Are My Rub-A-Dub / Bend Down Low / Jockey-Move
* Medley – You Are My Rub-A-Dub / Bend Down Low / Reggae Down Babylon, and
* Rub-A-Dub Medley (Live album)

It’s actually a play off of Jimmy Cliff’s Rub-A-Dub Partner. Shoots den pablo sato!
