Hip hop in the house (on the hill)


A spot of old skool horror-film-inspired novelty hip hop for this Halloween night, mildly incongruous Captain Kirk samples and all. You can blame the previous post for putting the idea for this one in my head. So that'll be Lovebug Starski and Hutch, then! Ahem...

Lovebug Starski - Amityville (The House On The Hill) mp3

And if that's not enough to send a shiver down your spine, how about the following YouTube clip? It features Jamaican reggae stalwart Barrington Levy singing Under Mi Sensi live on Saturday morning kids' show No 73 in 1985, while Nicholas Parsons and host Sandi Toksvig cut a respective rug along to it on the dancefloor. Bizarre, incongruous, marvellous. Why don't they make 'em like this any more? Why?! Click here for the full horror. (The best bit occurs exactly two minutes in, by the way.)

The kids (and the elephant) look justifiably frightened to death.

Apparently the elephant went berserk shortly after the credits stopped rolling, and trampled five members of the studio audience to death. The police later charged it with being trunk and disorderly.

Tsk, tsk.

Not ivory good one, was it?
