No idea what it is about this song, but — oh, boy — does it make me happy enough to shake my booty in public. Not that I need much encouragement. It’s not just that it’s a peppy tune; it’s the fact that the song is pure empowerment of the self without going into superego. It’s all confidence and therefore a powerful little dance ditty. Co-written by Dutch (The Scumfrog) with Crystal Waters, whose voice I’ve adored from the moment she sang, “La da dee, la doo dow,” in her ’91 hit “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homless),” “My Time” is pure gold. I’ve had a couple of friends tell me they don’t see why I think the song is that good, but that’s quite all right. It’s our little secret now.
Video starts about 20 seconds in. And please note how great Crystal looked back in 2003.
