Song of the day: Washington – "The Monkey Dance"

December 28, 2011

For some reason I can’t figure out, somebody somewhere decided to make a tribute album to The Wiggles. Yes, The Wiggles. A number of Australian musicians (20 to be precise) contributed their versions of Wiggles songs to the project, and the result was released last month. I’m still slightly mystified as to why somebody would think of compiling a Wiggles tribute album. Despite a few tracks that I’d quite cheerfully put on the what-were-they-thinking pile, it’s a lot o’ fun. I really like this one:
