Oh man, there are so many songs from the 70s that will make you literally LOL. Here’s two that you must listen to…and I’m wagering 99% of you will hear these fabulous songs for the first time right now.
First is ‘Junk Food Junkie’ by Larry Groce. You’d think it was created within the last 5 years, but it was published in 1976.
Next up is perhaps the funniest “serious” song I’ve ever heard. I love the lyrics, especially as he reaches the final stanzas and gives up on rhyming. Presenting “I Love” by Tom T. Hall.
Both of these songs are just too awesome to be relegated to wikipedia and youtube.
I can’t get over a new dance meme. I can’t help but laugh every time I watch one.
What’s the Harlem Shake? This sucker has exploded on You-Tube within days!
Well, it took a lot of research into both music and dance to figure out where it all came from.
The original Harlem Shake was in 1981. It was inspired by a dance in Ethiopia:
The dance requires a lot of shoulder movement (and dancing as if you were a mummy):
Despite its recent surge in popularity, the Harlem Shake, characterized by lots o’ shoulder movement and shaking the upper torso around, is not a new dance craze. The dance was in fact invented over 30 years ago in 1981 by an alcoholic nicknamed “Al B.” The Shake was originally called the Albee after its inventor.
(I wish I could find a copy of the ’81 Albee but so far no luck, but I did find this…)
