Song 61 Nu Shooz

Nu Shooz - I Can't Wait, 1986

'Ba-ba-baby! I-I-I can't wait!' An odd song - the only part anyone seems to remember is the intro, which repeats as a sort of chorus and tends to elbow the vocals aside. I once stumped a German student of mine, who claimed that she knew every 80s song in the world, with this one, which has earned the tune a special place in my heart. (Hah! Didn't count on Nu Shooz, did you? Whee-hee-hee! The teacher wins!) And I like the nice doggie with the sunglasses.
