    "Buddy" is the third single released by De La Soul from their album 3 Feet High and Rising. The song is often cited as an example of an effective remix; one that includes a change of song lyrics or beat. In this case, both the original song's lyrics and the musical bed received a make over. With its Taana Gardner sampling bassline, the 7 minute 12" version was clearly tailor-made for dancefloors and provided a striking contrast to the laid back album version. The song was also famous for featuring the major members of the Native Tongues posse, including Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah and Monie Love. While Phife appears in the video itself and is heard in the extended mix, the mix in the video eliminates his entire verse.

    The only reason I knew [that I had it] was because I went to get a prescription for glasses, i had to wear these Buddy Holly glasses. One had a blue lens and one had a red lens. And I had to read a paragraph, and they gave me a quiz, gave me 10 questions based on what I’d just read, and I think I got three right. Then they put a computer on my eyes, showing where my eyes went when I read. My eyes would jump four words and go back two words, and I also had a little bit of a lazy eye, like a crossed eye, which they always have to correct in photos.
