Anything with wacka-wacka 70s guitars that reminds me of Wonder Woman and Dolly Parton via Bollywood gets the thumbs up from me anytime!
Whilst the world is quietly plugged into their iPods listening to the new Coldplay or watching football and tennis on tv, I figured the rest of us could have a giggle with this little number. The artist describes it as a "collage of northern soul, Morricone, and The Fifth Dimension, with an added splash of The Avalanches thrown in for good measure."
I love the dance routine in the video. The choreography is brilliant. Zombie jerky moves meet line-dancing. The song is a cover, the original If You Hold My Hand was by "Little" Donna Hightower (Decca and RPM, 1950s). It isn't available in Last.fm (at the time of writing) but you can hear it here.
