Great Songs in Movies: “Black Betty” by Ram Jam in the Movie Blow

Today’s great workout song is going to be “Black Betty” by Ram Jam. This is a 70s song with some serious pop. I first heard this song in the movie Blow. I don’t care who you are, how dorky you are, and in what setting you’re in, this song immediately puts you in “I’m just going to absolutely tear it up right now” kind of a mood. So if you feel lethargic, tired, not in the mood for anything right now you can thank me for bringing this song to the table today and getting you out of whatever funk you are in.

There’s only one negative to this whole thing. The actual video for this song is quite bad. And by bad I mean unintentionally funny. So yeah, you should watch the video for the humor but then the song might not pump you up as much. I suggest you watch this video on mute so you can get your laughs in. Then just blast it without watching.

Or just do whatever you want because I really don’t care. Enjoy!
