Come on, Check it out, ya'll
(Come on, come on!)

Check it out, the tribal dance
Feel the force, this is your chance
To get control and do the tribal dance

People started dancing a long time ago
The bass was fast, but then again it was slow
Soul, house, rhythm and blues
It doesn't matter what music you choose
Strike up a dance, is your chance
To come with me and do the tribal dance
You've got to move it with a temperature
Into the rhythm that the fire burns
So get into it-- get into the trance
This is the rhythm of the tribal dance, the tribal dance

It started with a tribe who discovered the vibe
Who moved to the rhythm just the way they liked
You hear the treble, you hear the bass
The are-a-why, yeah is on the case
Feel the fire, feel the flame
Do your thing now, don't be ashamed
I have to go now, no offense
I've hooked you up into the tribal dance

Get into it
Get into it
Get into the trance
You've got to do the tribal dance

Check it out (come on!)
Take your chance!
Check it out (come on!)
Take your chance!
Check it out (come on!)
Take your chance!

Tribal dance! Tribal dance, tribal dance!
Yeah! Oh! Tribal dance! Tribal dance!
You've got to move it with a temperature,
Into the rhythm that the fire burns!

So get into it, get into the trance
This is the rhythm of the tribal dance, the tribal dance

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
