So this song, and this video, just stick with me. It’s one of those things where the beat tends to intrude into the mind at the most unusual times, and I must come back and watch it again. Note that while this is from a US Movie (when the feathers hit) and is purporting to show Black Africans, the average skin tone is more like 1/4 black, but the hair is clearly shouting African. It’s that peculiar American mix of Plantation Owner and Slave, a generation or two on. The “Shadow Family” of the South… In Dance. Yet Nu Skool is a bit hard to nail down. A comment says New Zealand, yet web searches say a group in San Franciso, go figure… or just watch the dance and enjoy it:
Bongo Dance! Safri Duo Played Alive
I don’t know why. I don’t care why. The song / tune just sticks with me.
Then, from a more “out there” genre:
New Order – Blue Monday (Remix)
Women are the reason men do most of what they do. If you are a woman and can’t handle being the center of our universe, Oh Well… maybe you ought to join the Army…
Holly Dolly Dolly Song Finland polka – leva’s polka )
Why do I say men ought to be men and women ought to be women? Because we are genetically programmed to love and protect women. That does not demean women, it raises them above our own life.
IMMORTAL – Thomas Bergersen (Extended Mix)
So it goes…
Dami Im – Sound of Silence
Any doubt? Just ask “What about this is not worth more than me?”
Amadeus Electric Quartet – Carmen (Habanera)
So, just Dance On! OK?
Snap! – Rhythm is a Dancer
