Safety Dance. Men Without Hats. Dwarfs and Dancing in Ancient Times.

First of all. I hope people weren't too pissed because of the joke I pulled on my blog today.

Where I come from, instead of saying sorry, we offer the person a song. Sometimes we sing it. Sometimes we write the lyrics out in calligraphy on a brown paper bag and burn the edges to make it look all old and shit. And other times we just fling the record at the person and say, "Here. Mom made me say sorry."

So please listen to Men Without Hats singing "Safety Dance" and lets all move on. Shall we?

And this Friday Send Off Song is dedicated to Mo Stoneskin. Check out his blog and tell him Zibbs sent ye'.

Did I say I was sorry?

Yeah I think I did.

Samsmama said...

Ya, I was pretty bummed for awhile there. Then I went through all the stages of grief and I'm cool. Currently, I'm on the bonus stage: Wine. I love you, man!

Kimmie said...

Not incidentally, is there a post about Nana Zibbs? I wanna know more.

Samsmama said...

Great. Now I'm doing the Safety Dance moves.

Dr Zibbs said...

Sansmama - dance it out. Don't hold back - really - dance it out.

diane said...

You can dance if you want to...eh..yeah.
And just so you know, it is exactly like you just snap a picture and that's it. If you would ever bother to download firefox and visit my blog, you would see my crappy photos and know this.
(I'm still a little bitter, at least Batman & Spiderman let you see their eyes)

That song is right up there with 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?'.

Umm, yeah.

Dominica said...

Just LOVE that song, makes you wanna move and bend your body into all kinds of...well, I don't know but just put the song and you'll understand ...

mo.stoneskin said...

So when are you gonna tell them it was a double bluff, that the photo is really you? They won't be happy you know.

Wil said...

Incredible, that song still sucks as much as it did when it was in heavy rotation. They certainly weren't no Cinderella! LOL.

OHN said...

I was a little devastated when I found out it wasn't you....I was sitting here thinking you were just freaking hawt then had the rug pulled out. I am not sure I will recover.

SkylersDad said...

I had never seen that video before. Now that I have, I will have to hunt you down and hurt you Zibbs. ;^)

Dr Zibbs said...

Skyler's Dad - glad I could torture you with this although I can't believe you never saw this.

Were you in a foreign jail in the 80's???

Cowguy said...

Oh God... this was back when MTV was just lightin' up and they flat out wore this video out. I think there were 10 videos and 2 of 'em were Michael Jackson.

I gotta dig through my stuff for a relevant picture. Watch your emails.

Prunella Jones said...

Interesting that you posted Safety Dance. So, I'm assuming the rumors are true and you did write this song?

buffalodick said...

Great song- great memory!

Andrew Rodriguez said...

You know, as the last two seconds of the video will attest, the safety dance was in actuality a protest song for the cold war hysteria of the 1980's, as the US prepared to deploy Pershing II missles into Europe, with the Soviets countering by deploying the SS-20 in the Warsaw Pact nations. Fortunately with the signing of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 1988, an entire class of nuclear weapon system was eliminated. This also seem to coincide with the break up of Men without Hats.

Coincidence?

Girl Interrupted said...

Hey! Where's my comment from this morning???

:O Are you moderating me?? Just because I demanded a naked pic in payment for the cruel hoax? (Safety Dance just doesn't cut it, Dr Z)

Ha! wv is bellyack

Fancy Schmancy said...

Oh, crap, I almost forgave you, then saw the video. And then my kid came out of his room and asked me why I was listening to Safety Dance. And I decided you are to blame for everything. Everything!!! You owe us an apology...

Dr Zibbs said...

Girl I - I didn't delete your comment. Are you confused?

As for this song. I hate everything about it. So if it's my "I'm sorry song" maybe that just means that I'm not sorry?...

Fancy - I take full responsibility
