Robyn – “Dancehall Queen”



about 13 years ago

I also wanted to post this video;

El Guincho "Bombay"

but the still image that represents the video is a 'golden boobie,' and I don't think PDD wants to be associated with that sort of imagery. The video, none the less, should be viewed in its entirety. Amazing connection between music and film.

I'm pretty sure PDD has a Golden Boobie award.

Yes! I'm glad you chose to show this video here. But you know I'm your real dancehall queen ... and don't forget it! So Duluth needs a  littlaexposha to this kinda thing.  Now if only it'd be okay posting that El Guincho song.  That'd be a real step, but I'm sure there would be seriously mixed reviews.  But hey ... can't please everybody.

I agree. Duluth needs more exposure to women smashing eggs against their foreheads and birds helping to light cigarettes.

I ride the bus to UMD every day listening to this song, so I agree, great song for a great city. In fact, there's a reason why my name on KUMD is the dance-hall king.

The KUMD Basement DJs are obsessed with Robyn's "Dance on my own" for some reason.  I prefer the Russian Futurists "One night, one kiss"

20 years of DJing and there have been dozens of songs that I thought would/should be huge hits but they fizzled out.  Sometime I'll make a list and maybe even put a set together and play it sometime.  Trying to be just ahead of the pop music scene is one manifestation of my DJ nerdery, or it used to be, anyway.  

And my point is ... Robyn's 1997 song Show me Love would be near the top of that list.  It was a big song in Europe at the time, (they were and are more dance beat saavy there on the continent).  However stateside wikipedia tells me it barely cracked the top 20.  According to this source she was beat out on the pop charts by, among others, 3 crossover country artists Celine Dion (naturally), Will Smith and an early hit from the Backstreet Boys juggernaut.  I guess it just wasn't her time.
