Correct title is "Word Up!" So I just unhearted "Word Up" and hearted the version with a !. (On a side note: Korn covered this song? LOL. I remember hearing their cover of "Lowrider" back in '96, so I guess I'm not surprised they'd also cover some Cameo.)
All the way fro Mozambique/Maputo. We used to dance this in during the civil war time, music was the best thing we had, it made us forget about the reality of those days. Its a pitty that this artist's are gone and maybe they will never realise that they influenced the music and life of people this far.
I agree with all of you, This track is truly a fucking funky great utterly mesmerizing funk classic of all time that rocked the house and still rocks the house. I luv this song! From back in the day at the club! It really is love at first hearing! WORD UP!! To Cameo and to all of you my friends!!
