Ahh yes, we're into 900 and why not start with a song that was quite popular and quite influential. Perhaps Cameo didn't make up the phrase "word up" (it came from a TV Show) but they certainly made it popular in the 1980s. Some of us old folks still use it today.
I got to see these guys perform this song a couple years back at a jazz festival. It was awesome and i checked "see cameo play word up" off my bucket list!
