in Movies, The 80s

The following is an Ode to Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo and was composed by Dr. Tank


Get out your cardboard.
Get out your loud boom box!
Sweet moves, you’ll be floored!

You will spin on your head.
You will pop and or locks
You can do the dolphin
in bare feet or in socks.
You’re on your own. And you know there is no feeling.
You gotta impress Lucia while dancing on the ceiling.

You’ll keep the kids off the streets. Look ’em over with care.
About someone will say, “Is that Ice-T over there?”
Electric Boogaloo is the greatest- nothing can compete,
And once you’ve seen this movie you’ll believe in the beat.

My enemy is your enemy
you’ll have to unite
In any case, of course,
we will join in the fight.

Breakin’ 2 the ultimate show
with Kelly, Ozone and Turbo

Ecletik can sure inspire us to do some awesome stuff! He’s done the same for me!

If only they’d put this much effort into saving “The Help Center”…
