Daily Reason to Dance

daily reason to dance: Many Moons

Many Moons
Janelle Monáe

Where to start? Janelle Monáe originally made her break touring with Outkast.  It’s interesting to see all of the stylistic similarities with the Hey ya! video.  I love this song – great lyrics, great beat.  The video is mesmerizing.  If you haven’t listened to the Metropolis/Chase Suite album, the end of the video won’t make much sense — basically she’s being deactivated as punishment for falling in love with a human.  I totally recommend listening to the whole album beginning to end, but March of the Wolfmasters gives the basic explanation.  Sincerely, Jane is a bit jarring at first, but really grows on you.  The live performance at Criminal Records is particularly good.  I think Violet Stars/Happy Hunting! is actually the best reason to dance on the album, but the Many Moons video is too good to miss.
