"Tangerine" by Big Boi

A raunchy send-up of strippers, dancers and women who give good "throat action": What's not to like? Big Boi, one-half of Atlanta's OutKast, is known for his fast-paced raps, so it may take three or four listens before you figure out what this song is about. "Tangerine" is just as funky as the duo's 2003 megahit, "Hey Ya!" — which also, coincidentally, includes the command to "shake it" — but because of the risqué lyrics, it probably won't get played on the radio as often.
