30 day song challenge: day 09 – a song that you can dance to

I’ve never actually danced to this, which is bloody tragic when I think about it. I’m going to have to find a day when nobody’s around and I can have my music on speakers (or when I have my headphones on and nobody’s in the office) and have a really good dance. This would just be the most exhilarating song to dance to. I’ll spare you the pretentious bollocks about “thunderous tribal percussion” and let you experience it for yourself. I can’t imagine a song that would be more fun to dance to.

Maddeningly, Follow the Leaders by Killing Joke only got to number 55 in the UK charts, back in May 1981. Even though this is 30 years old, it could just kick the arse of every song in the charts today. Most songs sound insipid after even 10 years; this is as arresting and ferocious as ever.
