Rapping blowfish and dancing seahorses. Fire up the grill.

I admit that I didn't get "Salmon Dance" when I heard the single for the first time; it is very different from other songs on the album and first impression was: painfully annoying. Now that I have seen the video, its silliness has been confirmed. It served as a reminder that although we are mostly high-brow electronic music aficionados, we need to learn to not take ourselves too seriously and have a laugh once in a while.

On a second listen, the song structure is actually quite good, solid beat and a thick & juicy bassline; kind of how I like my New Zealand King Salmon. Admittedly, I would have enjoyed the video much more if the kid got a fish-slap to the face at the end. "Salmon Dance" is the latest video single released from the Chemical Brothers' latest album "We Are the Night."
