Chapter 117: Yes Sir, I Can Boogie

Oddball funk & disco

The people who hated disco at its peak HATED it, and though I love it, I can kind of understand why - at heart, the genre is exceedingly silly. Listen to the hooting background vocals of “Get Off”! There’s a wholly unnecessary plot cliffhanger in the middle of “Copacabana”! What on Earth is “Indian Gaz”? But if you can get over your self-conscious ironic distance from this cheese, you just might be in the right frame of mind to dance, which is the whole point. Meanwhile, the groovy bait-and-switch of “Ware Wa” continues the African funk mini-theme from last chapter.
