Lemont is still doing the electric slide.
I haven’t heard the macarena in a long time.
When Al Gore did it…..the end, yet hilarious
Remember the video of George W. Bush trying to dance? Talk about your good times!
The Frog, The Twist, The Mashed Potato, The Swim, and that’s just the beginning of the dances I’ve lived thru. Then in my prime disco came.
You need to do what us Boomers do and pretend that it’s culturally significant, simply BECAUSE we did it. We’ve made a cultural touchstone out of Gilligan’s Island. Surely you can do the same with the Macarena.
This entire generation-this and generation-that thing is a crock. Families have generations; populations do not. In a population, babies are born every single minute of every single hour of every single day. The idea that the life experience of a child born on December 31, 1999 is somehow profoundly different from that of a child born on January 1, 2000 is ridiculous. The only reason the idea exists at all is that pop sociologists and pop psychologists wanted a way to talk about the way the culture changes over time and hit on this snappy but stupid way of doing it.
For nearly twenty years now I have heard Who Let The Dogs Out, YMCA, Cotton Eyed Joe and the Cha Cha Slide being played by corny street DJ’s at theme parks and tourist traps all across the USA. I have NOT heard them play The Macarena.
No, what really ended Gen X was the the bursting of the first Internet Bubble when all those tech companies collapsed because too many were running on pure venture capital and not actually making any real money.
Hopefully the “man bun” (millennial mullet) will do them in.
“No. You make it work. Others… not so much.”
