Back in 2009, when Washington City Paper posted some particularly embarrassing voicemails involving Ward 8 councilmember Marion Barry, we were pleased to see what you might call the DJ’s answer to citizen journalism: dance remixes.
Well, this week you’ve got another opportunity to make your own hyperlocal club bangers. The U.S. Attorney’s Office released recordings of former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson telling his wife, Leslie, to hide money from the FBI by stashing it in her underwear. “What do you want me to do with this money? They are banging. What do you want me to do?” says Leslie Johnson in one recording. “Put it in your panties and walk out of the house,” says Jack Johnson. Place that above a little four-on-the-floor, and you’ve got club gold. (Hat-tip: friend of Arts Desk Aaron Leitko.)
WTOP, bless them, has posted downloadable mp3s.
Send us your Jack Johnson dance remixes, and we’ll post our favorites. The creator of the best one gets a WCP T-shirt.
