An unapologetic novelty, "The Safety Dance" mixes a melody that wouldn't sound out of place on an album by Ashley Hutchings' UK folk-rock supergroup the Albion Band (the video even features Morris dancers!) to a crisply electronic arrangement, with Ivan Doroschuk's cheerfully over-dramatic vocals belting out lyrics that the band claimed were a commentary on nuclear proliferation, though it's hard to see the connection from simply listening to the song. The overall effect is?well, a little silly. Okay, very silly. But there's something primal in the appeal of "The Safety Dance." The song is slow enough and with a prominent enough beat that literally anyone with the use of both feet can dance to it, and Doroschuk's limited range ? he sings maybe a total of three notes in the entire song ? means that the vocal is equally attainable to just about anyone. Generations of drunken college parties have erupted into spontaneous mass singalongs of "The Safety Dance" as a result.
