The Safety Dance/ Pop Goes The World - 09/29/2013
This song is so '80s, and it shows all that is so wonderful about that decade. "The Safety Dance" was a song by '80s Canadian group Men Without Hats, becoming a major hit in 1983.  The song, containing the typical '80s quirkiness I love so much, also expressed the equally '80s trait of individualism. According to Wikipedia , it was a protest against bouncers stopping the dancing of more individualistic New Wave styles of dance, at a time when disco was dying. "New wave dancing . . . was different from disco dancing because it was done individually instead of with partners . . . Thus, the song is a protest and a call for freedom of expression." Heres their follow up son, "Pop Goes The World." Its now being used in a laundry product commercial. Fun video and song!!  Quirky individualism... and fun.. all very '80s!!
