D-d-d-do your dance.

"Word Up! (Extended Mix)" - Cameo

Sucker DJ's rocked this song in 1986 right to #6 and the nation went Cameo cah-razy. Also a huge hit on the R&B and Dance charts. Cameo had been around a while but this album of the same name turned them into megastars. Cameo guru Larry Blackmon says this song was born from a fan who yelled, "Word up!", in the crowd at a show in the UK. You couldn't watch MTV without seeing this video seemingly every 15 minutes (ah, when MTV really was Music Television) and Coca-Cola made a commercial out of it. Runs: 5:56.
