For those who missed this post, I promise that I will write the second part at some point. But for now, I just feel like I need to take a break from the "I hate you" songs. I'll switch to Vem Dançar Kuduro by Portuguese singer Lucenzo.
It was early May. As I cleaned my ex's small apartment in rainy Dijon, I used his laptop to have Youtube play the video en boucle. Since I was alone, I was completely confident to dance around in the way you do when no one is watching. I grasped the mopped and swished it to the jamming beat.
I swung my hips rhythmically as water splashed on the floor. I sometimes pumped my fist in the air, punching in time to the music.
It's such a happy song that it made me want to dance. Very few songs have that effect on me these days...
Or so I wish. I'm not even the Queen of Cleaning, which is admittedly not a very fun royal title.
I love this song! J'en kiffe!
I guess it helps that I can't understand the language. I only comprehend the beat.
Perhaps that's the same concept of the inexplicable trend Anime fans had by animating their favorite chibi-ized characters to dance swinging their hips and flapping their hands on their foreheads to the so-called Speedycake remix of CaramellDansen.
I prefer the original version of the song, though.
