52 Songs #3: Re-Flex The Politics of Dancing
And now for a REAL change of pace. I ran a record store from 1984-1989 and my musical tastes (and collection of vinyl) was entirely shaped by that experience. Consequently, I have a real fondness for this type of EXTREMELY 80s music. This one-hit wonder band was one of my favorites.
This week: Re-Flex: The Politics of Dancing, released in 1983. I don't I ever got to see them in person (which is quite something, as I saw a LOT of one-hit wonders back them, including Men Without Hats), but my best friend and I fixated on this album and listened to it over and over again. Like the best 80s synthopop, it's got a driving beat, overwrought vocals, and a fantastic hooky chorus. I'd give a a solid 10, because it's got a good beat and you can dance to it.
Info on the band here.
Does anyone have mp3s of Humanication?
Come back next Monday for another of the 52 songs!
