Vogeltjesdans (Bird Dance) by The Electronica's

(Video. Click the link. But make sure you sit down before clicking the link...)

This carnavalesque monstrosity has terrorized my teenage years. Literally at every dance party there came a point when the DJ was tired and the audience drunk enough, and then this was played.

The tune was made globally popular in 1980 by a Dutch accordion band.

Their version became a billboard success and a dance craze all over the world.

Apparently, the original is Swiss, though.

And according to Wikipedia, there are roughly 370 versions recorded.


(I'll have to go and lie down now for a while, but I will return later to comment on the actual image. It deserves better than to be associated with this pre-covid dance party mating ritual for inebriated humans. It's a good way to wave off 2020 though.)

Oh, Roel, what have you done?!! That awful, once ever-present, music had been successfully wiped from my memory banks, but now one careless click has caused the monster to stir in the dark corners of the filing system. I am trying a desperate vaccination using iTunes and hoping for success.
