Screamin' Rachael, "Fun With Bad Boys"

Screamin' Rachael was a former punk rocker who went on to become one of house music's first divas. She was also a classically trained vocalist, although you might not realize it from the bulk of her singing on "Fun With Bad Boys". But with this track, the genius is in the simplicity. The song consists of a bludgeoning, thudding bass line and not much else, while Rachael's lyrics are energetic but ultimately inconsequential. Remember all those James Brown tracks where you basically know all of the lyrics once you hear the title? The same principle applies here.

A word of caution -- you might want to glue the speakers to the floor for this one lest they undertake a random walk around your apartment.
