OutKast, “Hey Ya!” off Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003)

This song is 10 years old. That’s right: it came out September 9, 2003. I know this because a few days later we were all in my dorm room dancing to it when I asked my (future) wife, “Hey, you want to get out of here?” (Which means we’ve been together ten years. Damn!) Playing it for my son: “You might not exist if not for this song…”
