Say, do you remember dancin’ in September?

Earth Wind and Fire’s “September” freshly interpreted by the absolutely wonderful YouTube/ real-life duo Pomplamoose (with the help of grandma and puppet). It cracks me up (bringt mich zum Lachen): You’ll see them eating in practically every video they make, perhaps to remind you that musicians do, indeed, need to eat, just like the rest of us. Still, they are giving away free mp3s on their MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/pomplamoosemusic. A charming case against music piracy.

Their greatest hit to date is “All the Single Ladies“, which includes the additional lyrics “Don’t make me sing this part of the song, the lyrics are so bad, so we’re going to skip ahead to the ‘Single Ladies’ part instead!

Earth Wind and Fire (Maurice White, Charles Stepney & Verdine White):

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the mind of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing.
As we danced in the night,
Remember – how the stars stole the night away, yeah yeah yeah.

Ba de ya – say do you remember
Ba de ya – dancing in September
Ba de ya – never was a cloudy day

My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love,
Remember – how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love that we shared in September.
Only blue talk and love,
Remember – the true love we share today

Hey hey hey
Ba de ya – say do you remember
Ba de ya – dancing in September
Ba de ya – never was a cloudy day…….there was a
Ba de ya – say do you remember
Ba de ya – dancing in September
Ba de ya – golden dreams were shiny days

Now our bell was ringing, aha
Our souls were singing.
Do you remember every cloudy day – yau!
