Something for Thursday

 It’s funny about “one-hit wonders”: sometimes the hit is a genuinely enduring song, but other times the hit somehow endures despite being a very clear time-capsule piece that could only have come at a certain point in time. “Come On Eileen” by Dexys Midnight Runners is clearly an 80s song, but there’s nothing about it other than its general sound that ties it to the 80s. But is there any other time than 1974 when “Kung Fu Fighting” by Carl Douglas could have come out? I very much doubt it.

Here’s “Kung Fu Fighting”. Such a catchy tune that you couldn’t begin to get past the culturally-aware producers of today!
