Chicken Noodle Soup

Song: DJ Webstar / Young B "Chicken Noodle Soup" (2006)

When this song came out, you couldn't walk down 125th street, 145th street, 118th, (or any other street) in Harlem without hearing this contagious song blaring outside some bodega. Most of the song is a simple siren over a drum pattern, but the clincher was the dance itself, which resembles shuffling movements done in the earlier part of the 20th century.

Though this made the dance entertaining, it also made it controversial due to older people decrying the dance for it's similarity to moves done in minstrel shows. Nevertheless, it became a Harlem favorite, right behind the Harlem Shake.
