I can see why it was changed. People would've been accusing her of ripping off K.C. & the Sunshine Band.

The song was initially much worse:

Motorboat's gonna get you
Motorboat's gonna get you
Motorboat's gonna get you
Our motorboat's gonna get you... Jet-ski

The true meaning of Miami Sound Machine lyrics.

Something I have literally never thought about.   And this is their idea of a teaser to get people to tune in/

It would have been a decent idea, in 1985.

I don't think it's got much of a draw now.

I need to call my mother... maybe she'll goddamn believe me now.  I told her this almost 40 years ago.

Totally different song.  It was about a horror catching and killing you in cold blood.  But instead it's about discovering that no matter who or where you are, you're gonna do that YMCA or Stayin Alive.  Middleoftheday's mom just didn't want to admit what she does in the privacy of her own home:  Kung fu Fighting.

At night when you turn off all the lights
There's no place that you can hide
No no, the rhythm is gonna get'cha
In bed, throw the covers on your head
You pretend like you are dead
But I know it, the rhythm is gonna gey'cha

No way, you can fight it every day
But no matter what you say
You know it the rhythm is gonna get'cha
No clue, of what's happening to you
And before this night is through
Ooh baby the rhythm is gonna get'cha

You get a smart and funny.
Not because you posted Bob Cummings attempt at a music video.
No.
You get both because Oyster_Popsicles is a phenomenal handle, and I'm f*cking jealous!

Chris Wallace did the interview?  That's pretty funny.

The rhythm did not get me because I drink too much.

WALLACE: Well it's a nation of immigrants.

Thank you for mansplaining what she just said. And making it slightly whiter.

I don't know what happened to this group. They were huge for one summer about 30 years ago.
