So I have my first-ever sinus infection. I suddenly feel a bit more empathy for all you sinus problem people.
Anyway…I walked into my local grocery store/pharmacy so I could go buy some Sudafed to combat my swollen sinuses when all of a sudden I felt much lighter. I also immediately started thinking about Jr. High school although I couldn’t quite put my finger on what had changed my mood so quickly.
Then all of a sudden it came to my conscious mind. It was the song playing over the PA system. It made me deliriously happy even though my sinuses were hurting so badly. I didn’t even recognize exactly what the song was; I just knew it was unbelievably familiar. I had to wait until the chorus before I realized what I was hearing.
The ELECTRIC SLIDE?!?! I LOVE the Electric Slide. What ever happened to the Electric Slide? Boogie-woogie-woogie. I have such vivid memories of doing the Electric Slide at all my favorite and best teen dances.
It was such a fun blast from the past. I knew right then that I had to share this, so you’re welcome. Don’t worry it won’t be in your head all week long (it will). I KNOW everyone in my age group has memories related to this song. What are they…share (aka leave a comment, it’s ridiculously easy and not annoying).
Also…just in an effort to bring the 90’s back to their proper nostalgic ranking, teach your kids the dance. It’s like riding a bike, it will come right back to you. They give a pretty good demo on the video.
