Dancing Machine : The Jackson 5

It's been a while I know, and I'm sure my loyal readers have had a hole in their life the size of a robot song since the middle of January. But don't despair because its time to robo-boogie to The Jackson 5 and Dancing Machine. According to the internet, which I freely admit can be occasionally incorrect, the moonwalk was in fact invented by Chuck Berry in 1967. The chicken walk began to give his ageing spine a bit of jip so he developed the moonwalk as being an upright manoeuvre, it meant much less strain on the small of the back which helped keep his sciatica at bay whilst wooing audiences with his antics. Nothing to do with robots I know, but its a fascinating factoid none the less.

On with the music... it's the fabulously funktastic and teetering on tenuous Dancing Machine
