Dance Party Mondays!

Oh, to be young and black in the 80's. High top fades. Cross Colors clothing. Ostentatious jewelry. Some of it I miss. Much of it I don't. At least it was a time when hip hop wasn't stagnant and one-dimensional. In the 80's, you saw and heard a little bit of everything. Men, women. Black, white, latino. It wasn't all about killing someone, getting someone into bed or celebrating conspicuous consumption. There was some of that, of course. But that wasn't the whole point of the music. In the 80's, folks still liked to dance for the pure joy of it. That's why I love this video.
