Top Five Old-School Dance Floor Jams, According to Brad Williams
If there is something we've learned about OC native and comedian extraordinaire Brad Williams over the years, it's that he is one hell of a dancer. We know there's no denying he's funny as hell and gets plenty of well-deserved standing O's, but that aside, this guy has moves for days. With an upcoming gig at the Irvine Improv, we used his rhythmic prowess as an excuse to give one of our favorite funny guys a homework assignment. The task at hand? To go through his extensive music library and "take it back" for us to a time long before he was rocking the stage. See, Williams was always rocking the dance floor, which is why we knew he'd get an A+ for his list of top five old-school dance-floor jams.
5. Daft Punk- Around the World
This isn't your typical breakdancing song but when I was a DJ at Parks Jr. High, the kids went nuts over this song and it was awesome to watch. Whenever I hear this song, it reminds of my "DJ 4 Foot" days. [Laughs.] I wish that was a joke but that was my DJ name. DJ 4 Foot like the "number 4" because I was doing the whole Ke$ha "dollar sign" thing before she was!
4. Ollie and Jerry- Electric Boogaloo
Ollie and Jerry's "Electric Boogaloo" was from the best breakdancing movie of all-time which was, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. These kids nowadays and their Step Up's? They have nothing on Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo because here's the thing. All of these Step Up movies? They try to be good. Breakin' 2 tried to be bad. They were like, we're going to make a terrible movie with a kick ass soundtrack. No movie exemplifies the 80's themes and breakdancing more than Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. You can't get any more gangster than that.
