VH1’s 100 Greatest Dance Songs

New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 3,758 views

VH1’s 100 Greatest Dance Songs: mostly disco. I like over half of these but some of the ordering is curious, the 70s slant predictable but sorrowful, and there are a few unforgiveable turkeys, i.e. “Let’s Dance” by David Bowie, plainly voted in because it has the word ‘dance’ in the title and for no other reason. And “Dancing Queen” in the low 90s? You wouldn’t get that in Europe…..(via Jerwin)

I am not going to make a habit of linking to other weblogs. However, this act of heroic civil disobedience deserves all the hits it can get. Jerwin Maximo, I salute you.

“I returned Kid A this morning before coming to work. When I handed the CD over and demanded a refund, the HMV store clerk looked at me, startled and shocked, as if I had just committed the most heinous crime on earth. She nervously asked me to fill out the refund slip, which I did. Her eyes widened even more when she saw what I had written.

Reason for return: TERRIBLE!
