College had already progressed for the new year, my usual routine was already in play, for 2011 . Wake up, make bed, brush teeth, shower, dress, listen to 5fm , have breakfast, pack bag and leave ..
My dad would then drop me of at a pick – up point, where my useless, ex – annoying ‘driver” and/or “transport person” would pick me up, for a half and hour, literally “hanging on the edge of my seat” journey to campus. Most days I would put in my earphones on as soon as I got into the car, no wait .. that was everyday.
Music speaks to me, music is well .. music .. unexplainable and I’m sure you have your own interpretation of it , but a day without music for me is well, to put it simply.. pointless .
So the one day for a brief moment, whilst staring out the window, in the car, my earphones miraculously fell out of my ear (painful, I know) .. but I stopped in my own little personal tracks, and heard this song, not the whole thing, only a bit and the chorus stuck … ” Party Rock is in the house tonight, everybody just have a good time..” .. I went deaf afterwards because I didn’t hear the artist , and I wanted to kick myself for not listening, because I had to have this song…
Later that week I heard the song again, and my brother Chazlynn also seemed to have had it by then . Eventually , and I don’t remember how, but I got “Party Rock Anthem” , originally been released on 25 January 2011 by LMFAO (RedFoo and SkyBlu) . feat Lauren Bennet and GoonRock, I managed to only realise its awesome existence mid April, right after I met Poreotics ( when the dance fire in me got ignited , once again, and has been alight ever since).
I’ll never forget how it made me feel, and even up until today , Party Rock Anthem is really a body, heart, mind and soul possessing song . It makes me feel happy to be alive, happy to be able to hear and just happy that I can shuffle ( Yeah, you read right ..) amongst many other things, It just makes me want to get up and DANCE !!!
What made me even more happy was noticing Hok from Quest Crew in the main choreography section , in the music video after RedFoo and SkyBlu say “Every Day I’m Shuffling”. That was it for me, I remembered how much I admired Quest Crew, and how I followed ABDC Season 3 in 2009 ( I was in 1st year at college at the time) and that sold me , because I have to admit that I have forgotten them for a while ,which doesn’t make me less of a supporter, but more of a silent one .
Now although, up to this very day.. I cannot get enough of anything related to music , dance, life, art, friendship and love. I love The Quest Crew beyond limitations and I hope to meet them one day .
LMFAO is really something else, their new album “Sorry For Party Rocking” has the same happy, energetic, life – loving , party – rocking feeling to it. I got it last week and it is definitely an album to collect .
For the love of life, dance, art, and fashion .. I had to share, but a snippet of my thoughts ..
They ( Quest, LMFAO, Party Rock ) are absolute contributing inspirations for my 3rd – year fashion show range .. ( Nov 2011)
P.S My friends and I are halfway to learning Hok’s main choreography , just for fun, and I must say it’s hard flippin’ work ..but tons of fun.
