Even if a few bars of this song are started, I have not been around a group of people who can’t finish this beloved tune. (There were some serious double negatives happening in that last sentence…) What I’m trying to say is that this jam is somewhere in the top 10 for sing-alongability for my friends and I. You can’t not love it 😉
The song was first brought to my attention by JP Walker and the Forum snowboard team in their video True Life. The credits to the video consisted of a silly bunch of pro snowboarders making a music video to this Biz Markie classic. You wouldn’t generally associate this song with snowboarding, but it definitely made this video and has since inspired many other lovers of the snow (like my friends over at A Good Reed [check them out]).
If this is the first time you have heard this song I am sorry and elated at the same time. Sorry to know that you have gone this long without the knowledge of this amazing chorus, and elated that I am the one who gets to bring it to your attention.
