First of all, this song has been a family favorite for quite some time. I remember my older bother blasting it from his room with his door closed. And, after reviewing the video again, now I know why. He was practicing his synchronized dance moves for the upcoming high school social. No. Doubt.
I received a call from my younger brother a few years ago, after he’d seen The Other Guys: “‘We Trying to Stay Alive’ is the OPENING song.” Sure enough, when I went to see the movie in theaters,* I sat there like a grinning fool as this jam played while Samuel L. Jackson and The Rock created the best high-speed chase scene of all time.**
Take the four minutes and sixteen seconds from your workday to at least watch this video. And $5 to anyone who can track down Mr. Blue Satin at 3:12. I want his number.
*I know, I don’t see movies often, but when I do I make it count.
**Here’s said high-speed chase below. You’re welcome.
