Carl Lewis – Break It Up
Carl Lewis was the Michael Jackson of the Track & Field world. Incredible talent, a whacko outside of the track. This guy was my hero when I was in my teens as I had aspired to be a sprinter. And there was no better sprinter, in my book, than Carl. His running style was what was taught by track coaches. It seemed like he almost floated in the air when he ran. He had the best finish because he could somehow be more relaxed in the final 30 meters.
This music video is weird, awkward and cheesy. Though I have to admit, Carl’s voice is not bad at all. But the fact that the performer was the greatest sprinter makes the trip even more trippy.
