I know it sounds a little too apropos, but I like to cook and listen to "Guard Your Grill" by the hip hop group Naughty By Nature. And, thank goodness, not one use of the 'N' word. Well, 'Nubian' doesn't count, right?
I've posted this before, but for me it's Romanthony's "Ministry of Love." It was part of the last hurrah of great Old House; it was so unifying and amazing to experience. If you haven't danced to this in front of an 8' bass speaker on a dance floor while house queens are giving you fierce voguing realness, you haven't danced. I miss those wild, crazy days of my youth.
