It’s amazing how some tunes can transport you back in time to moments or certain experiences in your life. This song, by Van McCoy, takes me back to the time I played rugby for Askeans in Kent, waaaay back in 1975. I’ll not tell you what the other lads used to sing instead of “Do the Hustle”, but they were great days – training twice a week and playing on Saturdays, always followed by a few beers of course. 😊
The ‘proper’ video for this song was pretty boring, being just a few still images, and I didn’t think Pan’s People dancing in Baby Dolls was quite appropriate. So I selected this much better quality video featuring a popular Japanese dance group called Perfume. (I’ve never heard of them, but you learn something new every day! Watch out for the moving pavement though).
