121 / Raw Like Sushi by Neneh Cherry, 1989
Two things: 1) If you don't know the song "Buffalo Stance", please listen to it on repeat today. 2) Neneh Cherry is Eagle-Eye Cherry's half-sister! C'mon you know him, he's the guy who sang "Save Tonight".
Now back to the song, I am guaranteed to lose it if I hear a DJ play it. I mean, how can you not? The beginning of the song opens up with some scratching and a beep sample. Give me a beat!
Buffalo Stance, what's it even mean? "The song title refers to “Buffalo”, a group of photographers, models, musicians, hair and makeup artists, etc. formed by fashion stylist Ray Petri, of which group Cherry, Morgan, and McVey were all members. Such a "stance" would be to stand like such a person who is, or such a group of people who are, posing for a photo shoot in a London fashion magazine." [From Wikipedia]
