It was on a compilation album I had (essential hardcore or heavenly hardcore or suchlike). Goes like this:

E (pronounced eh) Ecstacy
sky's the limit and you know that you can have what you want
E - ecstacy
skys the limit and you know it

The girl starts singing - woh-oh-oh-oh (in the way they did then)

I know its a long shot, but someone once named me a song on here from one line so Im keeping my fingers crossed

Bumping for you as it sounds vaguely familiar and I'd like to know too!

mosschops30 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:10:44

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:12:09

I have that song somewhere.

Does she start singing - woh-oh-oh-oh and a man starts singing "move move moving on up" and then she sings woh oh oh again and he sings "move move moving on up"?

mosschops30 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:14:32

A-ha I have it, yay, do you want to know what it is smile

Caz10 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:14:48

Caz10 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:15:15

This is the first one I found. I'll have another look though.

By Notorious B.I.G.

Good evenin ladies and gentlemen
How's everybody doin tonite?
I'd like to welcome to the stage, the lyrically acclaimed, ha
I like this young man, because, when he came out
he came out wit the phrase, he went from ashy to classy
Ha, I like that
So everybody in the house, give a warm, round of applause for
The Notorious B.I.G. clapping
The Notorious B.I.G. ladies and gentlemen give it up for him ya'll

Uhhh
A nigga never been as broke as me, I like that
When I was young I had two pair of Lees, besides that
The pin stripes and the gray (uh-huh)
The one I wore on Mondays and Wednesdays
While niggas flirt, I'm sewing tigers on my shirt
and alligators
Ya wanna see the inside, huh, I see ya later
Here come the drama, oh, that's that nigga wit the fake, blaow!
Why you punch me in my face, stay in ya place
Play ya position, here come my intuition
Go in this nigga pocket
Rob him while his friends watchin
That hoes clockin, here comes respect
His crew's your crew, or they might be next
Look at they man eye, BIG man they never try
So we roll wid em, stole wid em
I mean loyalty, niggaz bought me milks at lunch
The milks was chocolate, the cookies, buttercrunch
In here, eyes crossed from blue and white dust
Pass the blunt

[112]
Sky is the limit and you know that you keep on
Just keep on pressin on
Sky is the limit and you know that you can have
what you want, be what you want
Sky is the limit and you know that you keep on
Just keep on pressin on
Sky is the limit and you know that you can have
what you want, be what you want, have what you want, be what you want

[Notorious B.I.G.]
Uh-huh, I was a shame, my crew was lame
I have enough heart for most of em
Long as I got stuff from most of em
It's on, even when I was wrong I got my point across
They depicted me the boss, of course
My orange box-cutter make the world go round
Plus I'm fuckin, bitches ain't my homegirls now
Start stackin, dabbled in crack, gun packin
Nickname Medina, make the seniors tote my ninas
From gym class, to Englass, pass off a global
The only nigga wit a mobile, Can't You See like Total
Gettin larger in waist and taste
Ain't no tellin where this felon is headin, just in case
Keep a shell at the tip of ya melon, clear da space
Ya brain was a terrible thing ta waste
Eighty-eight long gates, snatch initial name plates
Smokin spliffs wit niggaz, real life beginner killers
Prayin God forgive us for being sinners, help us out

[112]
Sky is the limit and you know that you keep on
Just keep on pressin on
Sky is the limit and you know that you can have
what you want, be what you want
Sky is the limit and you know that you keep on
Just keep on pressin on
Sky is the limit and you know that you can have
what you want, be what you want, have what you want, be what you want

[Notorious B.I.G.]
After realizin, to master enterprisin
I ain't have ta be in school by ten, I then
Began to encounter, wit my counter-parts
On how ta burn the block apart, break it down into section
Drugs by the selection
Some use pipes, others use in-jec-tions
Syringe sold seperately, Frank the deputy
Quick to grab my Smith-n-Wessun, like my dick was missin
To protect my position, my corner, my layer
While we out here, say the hustlas prayer
If the game shakes me or breaks me
I hope it makes me a better man
Take a better stand
Put money in my moms hand
Get my daughter this college plan, so she don't need no man
Stay far from timid
Only make moves when ya heart's in it
And live the phrase Sky's The Limit
Motherfucker... see you chumps on top

what is it?

solidgoldsoddingjanuaryagain Sun 11-Jan-09 21:16:35

A look on the lyric identifier suggests it's Sky's The Limit by Avant - does that ring any bells?

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:16:54

I thought it was this one but I don't think it is. You have made me want to go out clubbing. sad

mosschops30 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:17:00

Its Shade of Rythym and Exstacy grin

remember this

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:19:18

LOL Caz I know it wasn't M People! Excuse me you are talking to the Queen of Dance Music from the early 90"s. Please bow in my presence. grin I raved like no raver has raved before!

Caz10 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:19:51

can i come pg3?! lol don't think my hotpants fit no more...

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:20:51

I nearly had it mosschops! I was searching through my Itunes Library and just come across Shades of Rhythm. Damn you!

mosschops30 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:21:20

Hey I had velvet hotpants and wore them with a crochet top to the Resurrection in Newcastle, I sweated so much than when I put top back on (had been round my waist) it had shrunk to a dolls size lol grin

I miss them days of Vicks and gas masks

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:22:15

Caz you are most welcome! Just give me 6 months to get my figure back and I will unearth my ADIDAS shell toes and we will be set! Where do you live?

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:23:08

I had Velvet hot pants and wore them with a mohair tiny cropped top!

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:24:24

I miss them days as well moss, best days of my life as in no worries, no bills to pay etc. Just went out and partied like there was no tomorrow. There will never be clubbing like there was in late 80's early 90's.

Caz10 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:24:26

6mths? i may need years....grin

sadly i think it would all be too much for me now ha ha!

i live in scotland - we did our raving in fields! grin

mosschops30 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:36:13

would deffo be too much for me now, its takes me days to recover after a couple of glasses of wine lol.
Would love to go back in time where you danced your ass off for hours on end and came out of a club in daylight grin

pgwithnumber3 Sun 11-Jan-09 21:58:11

Caz, age is no barrier to raving, we used to go out with one of my friends Mum and Dad, they were crazy.

mosschops, everyone used to look glassy eyed and grey. It must have been a scary time of day to be on your paper round and a load of drugged up ravers dived out of a nightclub at 7am with their whistles. grin

plj Tue 13-Jan-09 16:58:51

I am going to show this thread to my DP!! I still dance around the living room to all my fave rave tunes much to the amusement of my DT's!! I miss it soooo much! Memories of raving at Ingleston and going to CREAM in Manchester! Wonder if I still have my whistle and glo-sticks!!??
