WAKE UP!!!! Get Your Boogie On!
This song by Mos Def has basically been on repeat for me for the last two weeks. I can't stop dancing when I hear it and it is coming your way now. I've been trying to find a good video for this one but alas, no such video exists...yet! However, I just couldn't keep it from you any longer.
Quiet Dog starts with a recording of Fela Kuti, inspiring us to keep up the fight, and then Mos Def brings it in with "the simple the plainness."

"Bang to the boogy
Say upchuck the boogy
To the rhythm of the boogity beat"
I'm gonna dance all over this city today. Well, actually, I'm going to find a coffee shop, do lots and lots of work, and then probably go to sleep. This song will be keeping my booty shaking in my seat while I work.
Here, stare at this beautiful face for 3 minutes while you dance.
