    General CommentThe Cha Cha Slide was clearly designed to satirise the years of New Labour and their use of spin and populism in order to gain support. The song refers to everybody going to the Left, then taking it back, perhaps referring to the days of the Labour party in the early 80's when they seemed too left wing to be a credible government, and of course their subsequent modernisation. The song refers to stomping on Foot, perhaps referring to Michael Foot, referring to the Labour party abandoning policies associated with his leadership, such as Unilateral Nuclear Disarmament.

    The song then refers to the direction of New Labour, and their efforts to slide to the left, and to slide to the right and to criss cross in order to gain the approval of the British Public, and even humorously and cynically jokes that New Labour would hop, or cha cha in order to gain more electoral support. However, the singer defends this abandonment of socialist ideals by saying that the Labour party has become funky, and says that it has gone to the top like it can never stop.

    The song was clearly written without a serious study of the British political study, as it refers to Charlie Brown. Perhaps DJ Casper forgot the name of Gordon Brown, and accidentally called him Charlie.

    General Commentdude, seriously! my gym class is doing dance right now and they want to dance to this "song". You're not really dancing, you're just doing what the song says. it's a really dumb song.

    My OpinionI know what the Charlie Brown is. It's when you go back and forth 4 times.
