90's Guilty Pleasures #55: Quad City DJ's "C'Mon And Ride It (The Train)" (1996)

I'm having trouble pinpointing why exactly this is a "guilty pleasure" since it seems nobody has anything really negative to say about it.. The biggest complaint I've heard is "it reminds me of middle school dances," which simply means that some may associate it with bad childhood memories... Not really a valid argument in either direction. It appears to be merely Jock Jams fluff on the surface, but there's a lot going on in "C'Mon And Ride It" that doesn't necessarily reveal itself until you listen to the individual sections that make up what really can't be described as much else besides "epic..." This is what God puts on at the party room in heaven.

Unfortunate.... The vocal version is nowhere to be found online... and the rap sections and vocal parts are so insanely key to grasp the full effect of this one... But anyway, here's the instrumental version..
