better late than never: “dance apocalyptic” – janelle monáe

dance apocalyptic

You may have heard this track back when it was released over the summer, but it’s fresh in my mind now that I’ve had a week to listen to Janelle Monáe‘s amazing new album, The Electric Lady.

Be honest, have you listened to anything except “Q.U.E.E.N.”?  If you haven’t, I don’t blame you; that track alone pushes the album into 10 top category. But you haven’t taken a listen to the album at large, now is the time.

“Dance Apocalyptic” might not be the best track on the album, but it’s certainly one of the catchiest.  Let it be your introduction to the rest of The Electric Lady:


 
Listen for: “What’s the matter? / Your chicken taste like pork? / You have triplets instead of twins? / Does your food taste plastic?”


You can also check out the video for the track, which is absolutely worth 4 minutes of your time (and then 20 more minutes when you watch it 5 more times):

    What a fun song and video. Can’t help but hear the Bangles and the B 52′s in there somewhere.
