Junior Senior 'Move Your Feet'

Chart Peak: 3
Junior Senior are the so-called "Laurel And Hardy of Danish Electro-Pop"... The infectious 'Move Your Feet has been described as "Fatboy Slim Body-popping to Wham!'s 'Club Tropicana'" and indeed Norman Cook is among their biggest fans.
Two surprising things about Junior Senior: the age gap is less then 14 months (Senior was born on Christmas Day 1977, Junior on 5th Feb 1979) and Senior doesn't really sing on this track, merely miming to the voice of producer Tobias Troelsen. I didn't know about any of this dishonesty at the time, but I still found the song very annoying back then, with its relentless repetition, oddly high pitching and "Senior"'s stuttery vocal and inane lyric. I have to admit I don't really mind it so much now, though, partly because I don't hear it very often. It does have a certain energy about it that can be enjoyable in small doses.
