American Top 40 PastBlast Redux, 6/6/87: Pseudo Echo, “Funkytown”

Before I started this blog, I posted about songs from old AT40s on Facebook, January-July 2017. I’ll be moving them here over time. This entry has been edited a little from the original.

The original version, by Lipps Inc., was #1 for four weeks, one of which was exactly seven years previous to this countdown.   The cover, by an Australian quartet, was their single splash on the US Top 40.  I liked both takes pretty well.  This version got to #6–it’s debuting here at #36.  Have to say there’s not much to the video–I’m wondering if the bass player is really a musician or just bad at play-acting.
