I Guess A Twinkle In Her Eye Is Just A Twinkle In Her Eye

In a deft step to the side, Bagging Area presents some hip hop from 1993- The Pharcyde's Passing Me By. 1993 was fairly close to when I stopped listening to hip hop. The Pharcyde, a Californian four piece, using self-deprecating humour, rapping about wishing they weren't such a wimp, and sampling Quincy Jones, Weather Report and Jimi Hendrix on this single, with vinyl crackle all over the start. As people say at the moment, what's not to like? The four mc's take it in turns to describe school day crushes on unattainable girls, and contains one of my favourite rhymes- 'now there she goes again, the dopest Ethiopian'. If you don't normally listen to this kind of thing, you should make an exception here.

It's also to the best of my knowledge the only rap song to use the word nincompoop as an insult.
