Woodchuck Chaka Chuck Khan
This song reminds me of the second Ghostbusters movie's soundtrack- I don't know why. I used to think it was on that soundtrack but the song is 4 years earlier, from 1985, while the movie is 1989. Maybe it reminds me in some way to Bobby Brown's "On Our Own" -don't know why exactly. The low synth- the bass line, is very deep and sporadic but cool. It's kinda 70s funk but updated to an electro 80s sound which is exactly how things should be, drawing on the past but giving a new twist. It's got some videogame-type sounds which are nice and cute.
The video is nice, got this black guy twirling around- nice how you see the white silhouette while his body is as black as the background- what!? It's a cool effect, I'm not trying to be gay. Anyway who needs to try? Chaka herself does a good job in the vocal deparment and she's also lively in the vid. Weird hair but it suits her well. My version of the video seems very very cloudy- like bad quality cloudy. I'm not sure if it's only my copy or if the original looks like this too. Seems like maybe it could use some digital restoration- like they did with the old Star Wars, just clean it up a little, otherwise a good video.
