Random Song of the Week – Call Me – Le Click

Call Me was released by Euro dance group Le Click in 1997, from their album Tonight is the Night. 90’s Euro was huge in Toronto, with 103.5 and NRG 108 pumping out dance tracks, and the club scene in downtown Toronto was getting airplay, not just on the radio, but on TV as well. Call Me reached number one in the dance charts in Canada for three weeks. Songs like Call Me remind me of a time when I loved dance music, even if I couldn’t dance. As with most songs of this ilk it’s overly long, feels extended with repetitive lyrics/hooks/beats and features a no-reason male rapper who interjects his two cents and almost derails the rhythm of the entire song. Still, I love it.
