Lambada! The Forbidden Dance

I have been meaning to do a post about this song. When the movie came out in 1990, folks didn't know what to do, as the dance was so seductive. I remember dancing to it when no one was looking. Much like the macarena, the lambada took the U.S. by storm. The latin/African rhytms and beats were irresistible. Once the song was translated, I loved it even more. Enjoy!

J!!!! THANK YOU FOR REMINDING ME OF THAT SONG. I REMEMBER WHEN IT CAME OUT, YOU'RE RIGHT THAT FOLKS DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THEMSELVES.

DID YOU SEE HOW THOSE LITTLE PEOPLE TOOK THE SONG? I SWEAR I CAN'T EVEN DO THAT.

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THIS SONG THAT MAKES ME WANNA DO THINGS I WOULDN'T NORMALLY DO. IT MAKES ME FEEL FREE & UNINHIBITED. IT'S THAT INFECTUOUS. I LOVED IT.

I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN A FLY & POSTED MYSELF ON YOUR WALL, TO SEE WHAT CONCOCTION OF A DANCE YOU CAME UP WITH. LOL

I WANT TO LOVE, AND LAUGH, AND DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY.

I WANNA HAVE SOME TEQUILA! LOL. CAN YOU IMAGINE?

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TEQUILA TASTES LIKE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, OR HOW THE BOTTLE IS SHAPED. BUT I WANNA HAVE IT! LOL

Be careful, S. Don't do anything I wouldn't do. I'm glad the song affected you so deeply. You probably would've laughed had you seen me swaying my hips back and forth. Have a good day, sweety.
