Song of the Day: The Rapture – Whoo! Alright-Yeah…Uh Huh

Toronto – If Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping is to be believe, a lot of people are going to disappear on Saturday – including my mother, the pope, Kirk Cameron, Carrie Underwood and the Cold War Kids. Why, you ask? Because if legends are true, Saturday will be the day of the Rapture, where all the Christians will just vanish into mid-air, claimed by the heavens to protect them from the crazy Armageddon that will then descend upon the Earth. I just hope if the Rapture happens, that the pilot on my Air Transat flight isn’t Christian, because man, that would be some bad news.

Which brings us to the Brooklyn dance funk band, The Rapture who released one of my favorite dance floor indie tracks of all time with the song Whoo! Alright-Yeah…Uh Huh. A single off their underrated sophomore record Pieces of the People We Love. A three and a minute romper that features cowbells, an awesome dance beat, great rhythm and a chorus so easy to memorize that even a four year old can sing it, this is a track that is fit for a party. It’s a shame that these guys have not released anything since 2006 but if the world does end on Saturday, this is a good track to go down to.
