A Conglomeration of Every Dance in the Nation
Megan Abbott and I were just discussing a Dale Hawkins song which describes and encourages a dance called "the Mumbly Peg." If I am recalling the lyrics correctly, Mr. Hawkins claims that his dance is "a conglomeration of every dance in the nation." Sounds complicated! My advice would be to focus, Mr. Hawkins. Focus! As in this fave dance "clip" ("click" here to enjoy). It is far from being "a conglomeration of every dance in the nation," Mr. Hawkins, in fact it is barely a dance at all, and therein lies its strength.
