24 March 2012 - Sir Mix-A-Lot - Baby Got Back

Sir Mix-A-Lot was a talented hip hop artist from Seattle, but he just wasn't getting any hits.  So he went highbrow.

Or not.

This song, a tribute to a woman's rear end that was clean enough to play on radio without editing - it didn't use the a-word even once! - has more double entendres than any I've ever heard.  Sir Mix-A-Lot was one of the last old school hip hop artists to get a chart hit, and he did it because he was - and is - a clever songwriter.  This very clever song is his magnum opus.

Also, I learned that red beans and rice go directly to the derriere.  Who knew?!
