The Bobby Fuller Four, Let Her Dance, Another Sad and Lonely Night

Anyone lucky enough to see Wes Anderson’s “Fantastic Mr. Fox” has heard Bobby Fuller’s incredible rock and roll classic, “Let Her Dance.”  The song is just full of joy.  The ultra catchy background vocals bleat incessantly, Bobby Fuller’s lead vocal is drenched in the kind of echo you get from singing at a drive in movie theater, and the guitars just fill up your ears with the sweetest combination of nostalgia and fun.  The video below, introduced by Gene Weed, (who I like to think of as the original Gene Ween) captures Bobby and his boys rocking their hit song in the middle of a mob of teenagers and go go dancers.  Its the true highlight of the video, because you also get to here a take of “Another Sad and Lonely Night.”  That song is standard 60s pop fair, and no where close to the majesty of “Let Her Dance.”  Tomorrow, I’ll have one more Bobby Fuller classic, and detail the rockers tragic and mysterious death at the height of his powers.  For now, I personally cannot stop repeating “Let Her Dance.”
