Whenever I think of Danse Macabre, I think camp. I think dramatic and perhaps even excessive horror. Excess. And that is New Wave. It has that overly dramatic feeling. We are dancing but we are crying and we might also be about to die. It is the doomed disco. Camp is nearly undefinable but you know it when you see it and when you are listening to this playlist you will feel that same joyous overindulgence that comes from not knowing where this could possibly go. Isn’t it fun to not know what tomorrow will bring? To be able to leave it all on the dance floor? You’ll be listening to this playlist and dancing because you don’t want it to end or you hope the catharsis will at least be strong enough that you’ll be okay with it ending.
