Flashback Friday

Photo courtesy of these guys. What? You thought that was MY tape? Don't be silly! I couldn't find mine.


Nothing SCREAMS says "I'M A 42 YEAR OLD CHORUS MOM WHO NEEDS TO GET A LIFE" "I'm cool" like blasting Funky Cold Medina on your stereo while waiting in line at the bank.


Not that I will admit that I did that.


I couldn't help myself.


What are YOU doing this weekend to celebrate your youth?

You know what I'm sayin?

I got every dog in my neighborhood breakin down my door

I got Spuds McKenzie
Alex from Stroh's

They won't leave my dog alone with that Medina, pal

This brought back mant memories...

How about "Mama gonna knock you out..."

Amy said...

Oh my... I'm 34 and I remember that song. What does that say for me?? For the longest time I said it wrong. I always said, "Funky Call Medina" HA!
Great, you KNOW I'll be saying that one line the rest of the day.

My boys are going on a Father/Son camping trip. So, it's a mother/daughter night, I suppose. :)

...Funky Cold Medina

Big Hair Envy said...

My sisters and I used to call it "Funky Gold Tequila"!

I'll have to step back a little further with some Air Supply!
And then Cdub has turned Little T into a real southern rocker! So theres always Charlie Daniels with the Devil went down to Georgia!
But then again it doesnt take much for me to celebrate!
Have a great week end sista!

My kids know the words to Rappers Delight. Not by choice, but because I wouldn't stop playing it. Gradually it cracked them up so much, they started requesting it. Especially that part about the chicken tastes like wood and that poor guy who's the baby of the bunch.

Parliament Funkadelic freaks them out a little bit, but they still get a good laugh out of it.

Last but not least, Gonna Make You Sweat is our theme song whenever we have foozeball tournaments at the beach.

The poor kids had no chance, but I choose to say it makes them very well rounded.

I'll bet Snow White could sing quite the version of Funky Cold Medina!

Big Hair Envy said...

"M-A-S T-E-R G with a double E"

CBW - Now I am CONVINCED that we were separated at birth, and that we've both succeeded in ruining our children!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I wonder what ever happened to Ton Loc???
Cute BHE. I bet they just love you around town. :)
No plans for me, the kids are semi busy, So I suppose I will just drive them every where.
I know, too flippin exciting.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I shall try this again....

I wonder what ever happened to Ton Loc...maybe too much funky cold medina????
I bet they love you at the bank...disturbing the peace and all.
No big plans for the weekend. But now I need some 80's music!!!

Mental P Mama said...

How 'bout Archie Bell and the Drells? Tighten Up.

That's what this ol' 49 year old is gonna do in the half marathon. Lord willing;)

Ellen said...

I'm more of "She's a Brickhouse" kind of gal. I don't think I ever heard that song. Ouch - my age is showing.

littletoesandcheerios said...

I'm working the nursery at chuch tomorrow...YIKES! Need some prayers!

Grandma J said...

It's a baseball weekend unless it rains.

Karen Deborah said...

Well gee, the Beach boys are more my speed, Jamaica, Bahama come on pretty mama, ,,were gonna get there fast and then take it slow...

I can't rap.

How bout, your mama can't dance and your dadday don't rock and roll?

Big Hair Envy said...

My GOSH, I love you guys...and every stinkin' bit of the music mentioned on this comment board!!!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend;)

Treasia said...

OMG I love this song and I'm 47 yrs. old. My 18 year old daughter loves it to. LOL. I found myself a couple of weeks ago going through all the oldies on youtube. Do you remember Leo Sayer "when I need you"? Now that's how old I am

Predo said...

O M G !!!!!

Suz Broughton said...

LOVE cassette tapes. LOVE them.

Keetha said...

Oh I KNOW you didn't just bust out with Funky Cold Medina! I think we may have been separated at birth because I'm all about some time bad 80s/90s music!

Life with Kaishon said...

I never heard of this before. But it's because I am not cool NOT because you are old!

Baby Favorite said...

My kids LOVE (ha) when I rap to an old RUN DMC tune from the 80's:

The other day when I was chillin' at Kentucky Fried Chicken

Just mindin' my business, eatin' food and finger lickin'

This dude walks in lookin' strange and kinda funny

Went up to the front, a menu and his money

He didn't walk straight, kinda side-to-side

He asked the old lady, "Hey Yo, is this Kentucky Fried?"

The lady said "yes," smiled, and he smiled back

He gave a quarter and his order: "Small fries, Big Mac!"

'Cause he be illin'...


Try not to hate. I know you must be insanely jealous of my rappin' skillz.
