JOE's Classic Song of the Day : Fun Loving Criminals - Scooby Snacks
Twenty years old now.
Artist, album and year: Fun Lovin' Criminals, Come Find Yourself, 1995.
Why is it a Classic? : While decent law-abiding music fans might be happy to sit on their sofa's and listen to some generic tunes, there's something inherently cool about the outlaw.
Scooby Snacks fought the law and it won because it's cool, by Jesus is it cool.
After hearing that bass line at the start, you're almost imagining Steve McQueen smoking a cigarette whilst leaning up against his Aston Martin.
All this before that brilliant piece of dialogue that's lifted from the Pulp Fiction diner scene and that rousing guitar riff that just adds to the songs slick appeal.
Huey Morgan's droll rap delivery is so nonchalant that it seems like the singer gives absolutely zero fecks, especially with his delivery on the line 'now everything's cool and everything's smooth'.
The juxtaposition of this too cool for school rap delivery with the anthemic chorus really adds to its unique appeal while that languid guitar sample from Tones On Tail, 'Movement of Fear' never tries to steal the focus away from the wonderfully descriptive lyrics.
Fast cars, smooth talkers, flirting glances, bullets blazing and rampant drug use.
If Scarface was a song then it might just be be this slcik anthem. We reckon that Huey would be just fine with that.
Did You Know? : The song was originally released in '95 but it failed to register with music lovers until it was re-released two years later.
The lyrical hook: "She gave me the loot with puckered up lips, And a wink that I found cute, and I said, "baby, baby, baby"
