      Boy, the Tom Tom Club was a fun band! This is a fun song. Great keyboard work, very detailed production, danceable, I could just go on forever. What ever happened to the fine art of music making? Why did music production become so damn imbecilic? Bands like the Tom Tom Club weren't trying to impress the world with their skill, they were just making great, fun music - their skill was just inherent to their body of work and they didn't have to flaunt it. Tracks like this one make me wonder these things - it's so good but still lots of fun, and not meant to be taken seriously. Why can't that still be the case? I've seen so many armchair producers with their laptops beaming about how great their "dope new track" is and I can only yawn when I hear that they just sampled an '80s track and looped it a few dozen times and added some 909 kick and hi-hat and a few "soundzzz". I mean, God, when will it end? Check out tracks like this one! That was great production, and they weren't ripping anybody off! They were just having loads of fun in the studio. Listen to this one on headphones...
