Sometimes the OCD in me thinks that it would be interesting if I had kept track of when I had bought each of my records and CDs. That fine line between extreme detail and near insanity. High Fidelity, anyone?
But I didn’t keep track so I don’t know. But I’m 99% sure that the first 12″ single I ever bought was Feel The Spin. It’s from the soundtrack to Krush Groove. I don’t remember it being used in the movie Krush Groove but then again, I don’t remember much about the movie Krush Groove even though I know I saw it. I remember going to see it because it starred Run-DMC. I remember LL Cool J had a cameo. Wow – Sheila E was in it – don’t remember that. Well, it was probably still a step above Breakin’ and nowhere near the classic Beat Street.
And no, I’m not being sarcastic about Beat Street. I love that movie. If that movie had been just a little more serious, it would be truly great like 8 Mile. But it jumped around a little too much from drama to music to silly comedy.
But now I’m rambling. Play me out, Debbie.
