Steve "Silk" Hurley - 'Jack Your Body' (1986)
I'd totally forgotten about this song until I had a look at the track listing from my all time favourite "NOW" or "Now that's what I call music" as it was known back in the day. It used to be an extremely prestigious must have and was a serious who's who of what was big at the time. Now 9 holds so many memories for me. Not only did I inherit the double cassette from Flycasual, but I had the VHS which only included 16 out of the 30 tracks and watched it constantly when I was 5 years old! I was especially mesmerised by the videos with animation and that included 'Jack Your Body'. In particular, the 1.27 minute clip with lots of little cats in tutu's running in opposite directions in a panic. Looking back at the video now, I can clearly see why this would appeal. Its a pretty good collection of random amusing clips that would entertain a young kid! I still love the song itself with it's 80's funkiness. If you love the cheesy synthesiser 'clap' sound as I do, it's definitely for you!
