George Kranz "Trommeltanz (Din Daa Daa)"

(Personal, 1983) This was such  a classic dance record in Chicago (and around the world) and at Whitney Young high school in Chicago there is an African choreography dance that the dance team has done for decades that is legendary, and the song re-peaks in popularity every few years. Yet I can't help feeling it has a joyful Dr. Demento novelty aspect to it. You can seriously dance to it, but the nonsense words and robotic music spurts and stops seem so fun and funny that I do not take it seriously in the pejorative sense of "serious." This is such  a good record that it makes me feel religious fervor, even if it is silly fervor. This is my gospel music!
