Let’s Get Lyrical #12 – Snap

90s dance music (the sort of thing you get on those rickety rides at travelling shows) is the only dance music worth listening to.  I dare you to put on Rhythm Is A Dancer without spinning round the room like a toddler with a packet of party rings.  Lyrically, though… well.  It’s not really that kind of track.

Rhythm is a dancer,

As in “ooh, ya dancer!”

It’s a soul’s companion

When everyone else goes to the pub without you, or has no money and wants to stay in, or dies or whatever, rhythm does not let you down.  That’s SCIENCE.

You can feel it everywhere

EVERYWHERE. Like in that song The Rhythm of Life.

Lift your hands and voices
Free your mind and join us
You can feel it in the air

This is presumably why it’s used in the shows…  It’s totally lyrically in-keeping with all the “scream if you wanna go faster” stuff.

Oo-oh, it’s a passion

True.  Nobody is in the music industry for money, after all. (Har. Bit of satire for you there.)

Oo-oh, you can feel it in the air!
Oo-oh, it’s a passion, Oo-oh, oo-oo-ooh…

Rhythm is a dancer,

Like Natalie Portman in Black Swan!

It’s a soul’s companion

That and chocolate…

You can feel it everywhere

Except Dundee. Trufax.

Lift your hands and voices
Free your mind and join us
You can feel it in the air

It hangs there like freezing fog or some other irritating weather feature.

Oo-oh, it’s a passion!
Oo-oh, you can feel it in the air
Oo-oh, it’s a passion, Ooh, oo-oo-ooh

Is it just me or have we been here before?

RHYTHM! You can feel it! You will feel it!
Rhythm is a dancer
Rhythm, Rhythm is a dancer

It’s OK, Snap, calm down! We all agree that rhythm is pretty important. You are preaching to the converted.  In quite an aggressive manner.

Rhythm is a dancer, it’s a soul’s companion, you can feel it everywhere…

This repeats until the end of time.  Yeah.  As discussed, lyrics aren’t really the point of this song.  But we had fun though, right?  Right.
