The Basics - Land of 1000 Dances

The Basics - Land of 1000 Dances
Since 2002 The Basics have tried to keep alive that vibe that allowed the Statue of Liberty to walk through the streets of New York City in Ghostbusters 2. It's soul, it's funky, it's rhythm'n'blues and it's sure to get your big toe wiggling at least a bit. Have a listen and see what you think!

About this track...

First written and recorded by Chris Kenner in 1962, the song "Land of 1000 Dances" became Wilson Pickett's biggest hit in 1966.

The "na na na na na" hook happened by accident when Frankie "Cannibal" Garcia, lead singer of Cannibal and the Headhunters, forgot the lyrics.

The Basics has been performing it since 2006 and do it pretty well.
