The declaration of a favorite Beastie Boys album is a sacred rite for those of us who can remember the very day that Licensed to Ill came out back in 1985. But of all the albums they released, it was Paul’s Boutique that has remained in permanent rotation on my LP, cassette, CD and iPod collection for lo these many decades.
Now, while Shake Your Rump may be better remembered, it has always been Hey Ladies, that for me, takes me back to late night parties in rec rooms with the three-way lights turned in the low position while the sounds of mouth slurping intertwined between the lyrics:
Oh yes, those were some very good times.
