APACHE IS THE GREATEST SONG EVER!! I like Rappers Delight as well, but I gotta' give props to Apache. I request it at every party I go to and always make a fool of myself by doing the choreography that goes along with it perfectly, from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, which is so famous and so much fun to do. But sometimes when I request Apache, the stupid DJs play all of these terrible remixes of it!! Like the Sir Mix-A-Lot version.
