Throwback Thursday: Biggie, Gimme One More Chance

Sometimes the best part about liking a song is anticipating the video. Some are strange, some stand out, but the best ones make you wish you were there. The artists, dancers, and extras seem to be having the time of their lives, and you can't help but want in on the action.

As such, this week's TBT category is "Video You Wish You Were In."

(FB friends, this is the blog title to which I referred the other night. I changed it, as you can see, but please keep praying for me.)

Choosing one song for this topic was extremely difficult as I spent much of my teen years glued to MTV, VH1, and BET, engorging on one music video after another. For some videos, I wanted to borrow their stylists; pretty much every En Vogue video falls into this category. Others had both stylists and apartments I craved: "Ex-Factor" and "The Boy Is Mine" immediately come to mind. 

But my selection in this case wins the day because it seems like the funnest (yes, that's a word) music video ever made. The cameos alone made me wish I were there, to say nothing of how much I love the song. It never fails to make me stop what I'm doing and start snapping my fingers.

Ultimately though, nothing grabs me like an old school house party. And this video gave us one for the ages. 

The artist is Biggie Smalls a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. The video is "One More Chance (Remix)."

I'd love one more chance to be in this video! Which music video do you wish you were in?
