Forget FlashDance forget Fame...forget Save the Last Dance...with newer movies like Honey and Shall we Dance( which I will admit had some serious lines..."The rumba is the vertical expression of a horizontal wish. You have to hold her, like the skin on her thigh is your reason for living. Let her go, like your heart's being ripped from your chest. Throw her back, like you're going to have your way with her right here on the dance floor. And then finish, like she's ruined you for life.")
I grew up on Breakdance. Not to mention it was the fisrt tape I borrowed when we first got the first video a Sharp VCR that had a remote control that had an extension cord you would have to plug it into the machine.
I am also the Proud owner of the original LP album of Breakin and Breakdance...y'all have no idea how I had to finish them peas to get them albums.
Dance Movies were made of this...
Some struglling Street breakdancers meet beautiful classy ballet dancer!

Ice T's "Reckless"
Yup caught it on big screen as well. There was a song that was done by Carolyne Townes "Believe in the Beat" somebody hold me down Im getting misty
Some strugllin dancers.
I only remember these songs
"out on the edge with my back turned against the wind, i'm on m own like a young lion hungry...you're the one who'll keep on standin' when all around you fall , you'll live to....SURVIVE""
"fast forward fast forward"
and some chick sayin that to avoid gating raped all you have to do is " look him in the eyes and kick him in tha balls honey!"
Ice T's Reckless:
Once upon a time a DJ's task
Was just to play records, what more could you ask?
But then came remixes, scratching and cuts
Which was too much for many, drove some DJ's nuts
But the DJ named Glove has reigned supreme
As the turntable wizard of the hip-hop scene
So listen to him, check him out, but remember this
When The Glove's on the wheels of steel he's Reckless
This high-powered music is truly unique
As The Glove cuts the rhythm to the hip-hop beat
He moves like a madman as he spins his disc
He's the number one scratcher on the DJ list, he's Reckless
Now I've seen DJ's, too many to name
Some gained recognition and even fame
But when you talk of MC's, Ice-T is the best
And when you talk of DJ's, forget the rest, Glove's Reckless
So listen very closely as The Glove throws down
He cuts like a razor to the big beat sound
Dave's layin' down a groove that we know you'll like
With The Glove on the turntables and Ice-T on the mic, we're Reckless
So listen to the music, let your mind feel free
Realize you're with the master G-L-O-V-E
Dave and MC Ice-T, you know you're with the best
Because when we're in the mix you know the groove is fresh
and Reckless, Reckless, Reck-Reck-Re-Reckless
