The Go! Team – The semicircle song (Memphis Industries)

Great pop music comes in many different forms.

However there are some combinations of elements that even on paper are close to guaranteed to bring about wonderful results.

A brass band.

Handclaps.

Shakers.

Xylophones.

A chorus of oohs.

Add to that the way around a melody and bouncing backbeats which are two of the things we love most about The Go! Team.

And the sheer exuberance of the group of Detroit teenagers who guested on vocals.

Did I mention that the singers introduce themslves along with their starsigns during the breakdown?

(Plus is that a theremin in the background?)

A joyous riot and a genius pop song.
