Jungle Love

After posting yesterday's Treniers videos I was reading an old Sheena Queen Of The Jungle story from Pappy's Golden Age Comics blog.

In the weird way my brain connects stuff of dubious connectability I thought about Morris Day and the Time doing "Jungle Love." I looked it up on YouTube and sure 'nuff…there they were doing the song live in Amsterdam…and the loose-limbed step they do reminded me of The Treniers. More connection, even if it is just in my brain.

Yeah, I know, it's more than 50 years that separate these songs, but they have something in common: showmanship, a dance step breaking out in the middle of the song, and a catchy nonsense song.
