I've noticed a few musical challenges on myLot so I thought I would share one with you. A favourite of mine is Oops Upside Your Head sung by The Gap Band. It hit the dance floor when I was in my late teens back in the 1980's. In my area it was common to sit down and form a large rowing boat when the music started to play. We would then row manically in time to the music. I haven't got a video clip of my friends and I doing this so I've include a video of the song. Can you imagine rowing to it? It's very good exercise.

The songs that are appearing evoke some memories. This one is unfamiliar.
