Spring Break...Here to Party

Capitol Nashville
Rolling Stone: star rating

The latest from this chart-topping country frat boy is the best spring-break concept album ever recorded. It's also the worst, and probably not the last. The titles tell the story: "Suntan City," "Buzzkill," "Sorority Girl." There are fine country variations on this theme (cf. Brad Paisley's "Water"), but Bryan's songs are witless and boring. You end up with a contact hangover, depressed about American higher education.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
