Love Rain Down - Mondo Freaks

from the album Plastic World, Vol. 1 (2016)

OK.  Here is a little secret.  I am a closet dancer.

My moves are more elusive than a Blue-footed Booby.  You will almost never find them on a dance floor.  For if you did, people would stare, people would laugh, and others would certainly shriek.  Not that it is all that awful, more that it creates a spectacle that most mortals simply cannot handle.  Let's just call it unconventional.

I was twice asked by security guards at the Teatr Wielki in Warsaw to stop a demonstration of my dance moves.  They did not buy that it was part of "the culture of my homeland."

But when I am alone, Overture, Curtain, Lights...

This usually starts when an old movie - like Saturday Night Fever - is playing on some odd channel.  Sometimes I am a bit more proactive, pulling out an old copy of Dance Craze and a bottle of Fireball.

Tonight was one of those nights.  The full moon shining bright on a humid patio.  The stereo pumped up loud.  My new Mai Tai recipe in full bloom.  And nobody else around, except for a Welch Corgi named Karma.

The new song in the playlist (there is always a new song in the playlist) is Love Rain Down by Mondo Freaks.  This Australian group lays down a post-disco 80's vibe that evokes Paradise Garage and the stuff Madonna danced to before she was Madonna.  It is funky.  It is freaky.  It even has some killer talk box thrown in.

Play this tune and bust a move.  Can you do The Big Fig Newton?
