“OK, Peter. You were banging on about how you’re not a fan of dance club beats. Is there anything with a dance-y kind of beat that you do like?”
To which I answered in my best Perry Mason voice:
“Why yes, Peter. Yes there is.”
And this is it. It’s the title track from Sugarbomb’s independently released 1999 debut album:
(Dance-club-related advice: turn this up, up, up!)
Sugarbomb – “Tastes Like Sugar” (1999)
I have a feeling that the band, when not licking ice-creams, had their tongues in their cheeks when they recorded that.
Update: I’ve been advised by the 20-year-old in the household (Hi, Celeste!) that the above song isn’t dance-clubby at all. (As in: “There’s no way that’d be heard in a dance club nowadays. What century were you born in?”)
Update II: I just remembered that there’s another dance-y song I like. It’s “10,000 Nights” by Danish band Alphabeat, and it was Song of the day a couple of years ago.
