✨Illumination & Wonderment✨
These are the words that describe my initial reaction to hearing & seeing this song for the first time on MTV as a 15 year old kid.
I remember sitting on the couch with my best friend, we were watching tv, when all of a sudden this thumping kick drum started to play through the television speakers, mixed with the funkiest baseline I had ever heard in my life, and all going with a music video that would proceed to completely blow our minds.
Changing our lives forever.
We sat back instantly realizing the fact that is was indeed, about to be the COOLEST f*^#king
thing we had ever seen.
I absolutely lost my mind watching the choreography from the dancers, the costumes, the stage design. ...it was like some alien race’s television signal got crossed with earths, and we were watching the very first communication from extraterrestrial beings.
By the end of the video, our minds were melted, we were dancing in the living room. Just really enjoying that moment to the fullest!
We didn’t have YouTube or any music streaming services back then. I really think only seeing and hearing this track one time, and being so blown away by it, and having no way of listening to it again really made it even more special. We talked about it, tried to remember the outfits, how the beat went, and when it would be on again. It was the stuff of legends.
And when it finally did come on again...at home...in a friend’s car. It was like a ✨CELEBRATION✨ and it still is. I don’t remember a lot of moments from my life this throughly, but these 4:02 seconds of time completely, indubitably, absolutely, forever changed my life. Setting me on the exact path I am on now.
