This song never fails to make me dance. It’s like the grooviest sound known to man was created in a lab and released to the world as ‘Groove Is in the Heart’ by Deee-Lite.
There are so many things that work about this track: the retro-chic lyrics, the tightest bassline in existence, the weird sound effects, Bootsy Collins’s interjections etc, etc, etc. The only thing I’m not fussed about is Q-Tip’s rap – but that’s a pretty minor complaint.
Overall, this song is, how do you say, de-gorgeous!
