Classic of the day: Original Flavor ft. Jay Z - Can I Get Open

If you haven't heard this one before, we have to stress that you click play right now.  A classic hip hop tune from Original Flavor and the one and only Jay Z.  All very young at the time of this tune, everyone involved is so incredibly dope, especially the surprisingly fast and chopped up delivery from Jay Z.  This tune made it to #46 on the Billboard Maxi Singles chart, although the group disbanded shortly after the release of this album.

From the OST for the film Cat People, which was released in 1982, we bring you the David Bowie classic of the same name.  This jam was released a few different times, each time a bit different, managed to climb several international charts, including making it to number one on the singles charts in New Zealand, Norway, and Sweden.  
It's also produced by Italian legend Giorgio Moroder, who also worked with Blondie, Pat Benatar, Daft Punk and Freddie Mercury, to name a few.  AND, get this, features guitar solos from none other than Stevie Ray Vaughan. Damn.
