Brave Combo Still Subversive

Brave Combo, The City of Denton's "House Band" played Tuesday night at the end of the 150th anniversary party hosted by the City of Denton. They debuted their new song about Denton and not even the Denton Record Chronicle picked up the slightly subversive tone to the song.

Here are the lyrics:

Troubled times don’t get us down in Denton town.
Troubled times don’t get us down in Denton town.…

Life is best in the home of happiness.
Peaceful rest in the home of happiness.…

When it’s dark, we’ll find a light.
We’re Dentonites!
Polka hard, with all your might, Dentonites!
Polka hard, with all your might, Dentonites!

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, DANCE!
Troubled times don’t get us down in Denton town. …

Ya la la la la loo la la.

What's really funny about the lyrics is the reference to Denton being the "Home of Happiness" which is a direct reference to the movie: Rocky Horror Picture Show, in which at the very beginning of the movie, the lead characters, Brad and Janet sing a love song Dammit Janet in the churchyard with a huge billboard in the background stating -

Denton - The Home of Happiness




I just think that's funny.
