Hi Tami!

This might be a tough one – I was channel surfing my presets this morning, around 8:50-9:00 am and landed on jack fm…I caught like an advertisement you guys do of like 3 second clips of various songs played back to back? The song sounded kinda light rock/alternative? Not sure how to describe it, I’m horrible sorry, but the lyrics that were played were “shake it back and forth, rock on…” – that’s all I caught – I keep searching online and all I get is Willow Smith’s whip your hair (SO not the song lol). The vocals were a male singer. Help!


Arpie, we know the plight of getting whipped by Willow Smith, so here’s Tami Heide to your rescue.

Hi Arpie-

No idea. We have dozens of those montage/collages, and we don’t really keep track of them. But they are all from songs we play in their entirety.

Could rock on be David Essex “Rock On”? And could shake it be Outkast “Hey Ya”? If no, I’m out ’til you hear us play the song(s) in their entirety and e-mail back.


  • David Essex – “Rock On”
  • Outkast – “Hey Ya!”


Got anymore brain-busters?

… What’s that song: “You charming little girl”?

… What’s that song: “i dont see any song there in the middle”?

… What’s that song: “morning cruel/ morning brutal”?
