Shimmy Shimmy Ya (reggae style)



Another day, another great cover! I've been a Wu-Tang and ODB fan since the first time I heard them sometime in my teens. Aside from Baby I Got Your Money, Shimmy Shimmy Ya is probably my favorite Big Baby Jesus tune. So imagine my pure elation when I heard this amazing cover on one of my favorite shows, Breaking Bad. Put this shit on and I dare you not to dance your ass off like Jesse Pinkman on a meth binge.

EXTRA BONUS TRIVIA: Aaron Paul also played a lapsed Mormon who devirginized Bill Paxton's daughter on Big Love. During a scene when she flips through his record collection, the iconic artwork of Killers is clearly visible. Does this guy play characters with great taste or what?
