You then (hopefully) proceeded to dance in a puddle of sweat, clutching your three dollar PBR during a far-from average 4:00 AM dance party, grooving to the mixes of DJ Major Taylor – the only man who could throw in the famous “AHHHHHHHHHHHH ZA BENYA” (Circle of Life) from the Lion King after Bell Biv DeVoe’s Poison.
