Challenge of the day: click the play button of the video below and in the 3 minutes afterwards do not move your fingers, especially not to the rhythm of the piano sound. The song is über-catchy, although that might not have been intentional, as The Shirts actually began their career as a punk band in the late 70’s.
Iconic. That word should not be used lightly to describe a song, but in this case it is absolutely justified. The energy. The vibe of happiness. The thingy taped to the microphone. Tip of the day: bookmark this page for occasions when you might need a shot of positivism.
And in case you wonder what a contemporary version would look and sound like, here’s a more recent recording.
