Funkytown (1986 cover by Pseudo Echo)

Yes, I have become obsessed with this silly song. After watching the previously linked video a few times, YouTube sensed I wanted more and presented me with the Australian band Pseudo Echo’s 1986 cover, which features guitar solos and even better, guitar synths!

This is a strange and delightful fusion of rock, and I absolutely adore the chorus with those giant chunky synths that the 80s were known for. And it’s clear the band had great fun covering the song.

Also, tucking your t-shirt into your pants was a big thing in the 80s. Not as big as most of the hair, mind you.
