Men Without Hats - Safety Dance

The easiest dance in the history of mankind to learn. If you had two arm and could lift one above your head in a 45 degree angle and the other in front of your waist at the opposite 45 degree angle, then you knew the Safety Dance.

The video for this song by Men Without Hats, was just wrong on so many levels. The three main characters in the video kind of scared the bejesus out of me. The lead singer was always shifting his eyes from one side to another and it made him look posessed. The girl, who was twirling and dancing, was just downright crazy looking. She looked, as though she belonged in an insane asylum. And, well, as far as the dwarf goes, dwarves have always scared me quite a bit. If you add a jester outfit to one you have the fodder for many future nightmares.

With all that said, it was still a catchy tune, which could not be denied a high place on the charts.
