The 1996 movie Space Jam
opens with the R. Kelly ballad "I Believe I Can Fly
" as we see a young Michael Jordan growing his wings. But this is a jam
after all, so the theme song needed to be bumpin'. One of the hottest songs in the summer of 1996 was "C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)
" by The Quad City DJ's. For the movie, they essentially re-wrote that song: instead of riding the train, we're dancing at the Space Jam.
The song plays over the opening credits, which are essentially a Jordan highlight reel. It sets the tone for the movie, which is filled with jock jams.
