I first posted about this song back in November 2009. I’m re-posting as Ron has just published the above great new video for the song.
“This is a great, up-tempo song full of fun references to polka greats such as Lawrence Welk and Myron Floren. The message it contains is more serious; written well before this week’s Congressional health insurance non-reform it is sadly still relevant. Ron sings about dancing as a way to lift one’s spirits; which should no longer be considered radical. There are plenty of studies that show dancing, singing, laughing, etc are great for combating (although not a guaranteed solution to) depression and other ailments. They can also be great exercise for body and mind. And it would be great if they were supplemental to great healthcare; for everyone. Not just people who ‘can really afford to be sick‘ under the current healthcare scheme.”
