Passing Me By
Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde
My love for this song is well documented. I’ve had it as my ring tone on almost every mobile phone I’ve ever owned. I sometimes change it, but I always quickly return.
I fell in love with this track when I watched the movie “Big Daddy” when I was 11. I would probably say it was the first song I heard that got stuck in my head. I had no idea what it was called, who it was by, or even that it was “Hip-Hop”. I was unaware of genres at this point and most likely naively assumed music was just, “Music”. It took me a few years before I eventually stubbled across it when I started taking an interest in music and did some research.
But the intro to this track will forever be embedded in mind thanks to Adam Sandler, which is odd. I’d like to think this track was the catalyst in my music quest, because this song led me to discover so much by giving me just a little taste of what Hip-Hop was about. If I hadn’t heard this song at 11 on Big Daddy I wonder if I’d know who Dilla was, or ATCQ, or De La Soul…which seems unimaginable considering the significance they have had on my taste in music.
