Retro Moves: Do the Bus Stop
Though this song sounded vaguely familiar when I first heard it on the excellent soundtrack for the By Malene Birger’s Autumn/Winter 2010 show, I couldn’t think of the name of the song or the band. Because of its genius refrain, I found it quickly enough: “Bus Stop” by the Fatback Band. This particular version dates from a 1975 broadcast of the one and only Soul Train. I’m just in love with the style here, not to be mention the moves. Enough to show they can dance but not too much to seem like they’re showing off. Unbeatable.
