this week, a fascinating evolution: the best dance tracks from 1964, 1974, 1984, 1994, 2004, and 2014...
everyone feels the happiness of dancing mindlessly and mindfully, along with pharrell williams' ubiquitous "happy."
50 years ago you danced in your kitchen while singing "dancing in the street." 40 years ago, you might have been dancing in the mirror to "boogie on reggae woman." 30 years ago, things were much the same with "jump" or "all she wants to do is dance." 20 years ago, you had obnoxious fun with "here comes the hotstepper" or an electronica hoe-down with "cotton-eyed joe." 10 years ago, if you lived in brazil you were dancing at the beach, singing luka's "to nem ai."
this year, you have no choice. you have to get "happy."
check out the dance tracks.
Millennials, Generation Y'ers: Stick around after Mr. Tint's show at 2 PM tomorrow for Centripetal Sounds. I have a time machine, and I am going to use it! Of course, the past and the future only exist in the mind... you will need to be present, you see. And, by request, we will blast through songs that blast you through your day. If you are like Todd Rundgren, and you run home to bang on a drum and pretend it's your bosses' head, you will relate to this show. The 'great' boss- decrier of the status quo, purveyor of purpose, crafter of passion and focus, master of regulating all things to their proper place: This individual will be completely absent from our survey. Side one is gritty, side two rocks a groove hard. Let's get busy. The G Man
