Who knew that the day would finally come when Charlotte Dada was revealed: http://combandrazor.blogspot.com/2009/05/charlotte-dada-revealed.html
You know it’s the only track that I never remove from this blog?
Many thanks to With Comb & Razor for this precious late night Sunday moment. I feel like we should throw a party. Wait, we will! I don’t want to steal the fire by re-posting Ms. Daddah.. so let’s celebrate another way.
While Charlotte’s Don’t Let Me Down may still be the unofficial theme song of Benn loxo du taccu, Maître Gazonga’s “Les Jaloux Saboteurs” is in many ways the theme song to my life.
First featured on Benn loxo in 2005 (thanks, Mr. Bida), this song-of-songs has rocked dance floors at parties in Bolivia, Ireland, China, Canada, France, Senegal and elsewhere. It broke a dance floor outside of Galway and brought everyone to their feet in La Paz. It’s a standard now in Paris and rung in the New Year in Toronto.
Friends, if there is any way to celebrate the Finding of Charlotte it is by dancing to Maître Gazonga.
