Admission to the Burning Ruins — 10¢

Squeezebox Boogie

My friend Tacologic often uses his journal to share pieces of music. Here’s his latest entry:

OK, think about all of the unlikely word pairings you've encountered in your life. Military intelligence? Yeah, sure, we've all heard that one. Jumbo shrimp? Yep, that one makes you wonder, too. Christian Heavy Metal? That's just plain wrong.

Allow me to introduce you to a new one: Disco Polka.

You remember watching the Lawrence Welk show with your parents when you were a kid, right? Remember that guy playing the accordion? That's Myron Floren. He made a disco polka record. Accordion. Disco. Polka.

He goes on to praise Mr. Floren’s opus as “an album full of the dank deliciousness of Disco: swirling strings, bombastic bongos, Fender Rhodes, all topped with enough oom-pah-pah to get both your uncle Irwin, Grand Poobah at the Moose Lodge, and your cousin Vinnie, Assistant Manager at the Quick Lube, on the dance'll fill your living room with the roar of polyester.”

If you want to hear the song in question, there’s a link in the original entry. Remember to right-click-save!
