Ah, Cowboy Bebop. You are quite glorious. Surely if I told you this was a show about bounty hunters who live on Mars, and then said this is the opening theme tune, you’d be interested. Right??? I mean, just look at the opening below! It’s got style coming out of every damn frame.
Funktacular! Sure, that might not actually be a word, but how does would you describe this sumptuous bit of electronic bebop? Swingalicious? Groovapalooza? Whichever way you decide is best, you are still describing a song that effortlessly inspires much rigorous movement. Undoubtedly cool, unlike the moves I pull.
Now that Sydney (the one in Australia, darling) is becoming a hive of funky, amazing little bars, there are more than a handful of places keen to move past the boorish cacophony of bad DJs and harsh flashing lights into something a bit more chilled. Any place that has stuff like this playing will probably make me spend too much money on whatever drinks they’re serving, but it’s totally worth it to hear this kind of music being played in public again. Not that I was around when this music was common in public, but still!
