Jimmy Barnes is the Lord ofthe Dance

Who cares about that ol’ Cold Chisel reunion, a whole new future awaits Barnesy now! Prepare to be teleported to a place where bronzed beauties get down on pristine beaches till sunrise, the streets are alive with parties and a 55-year-old Jimmy Barnes is the Lord of the Dance.

Thanks to a character called DJ Yaleidys who thought club-land was crying out for the Cold Chisel frontman’s gravelly tones, Barnesy has now found himself sitting pretty in the US Billboard Dance Chart Top 40. As you’ll see from the video below, Sun In Cuba sees the pub rock icon getting well into the Cuban spirit, while a Ralphi Rosario edit ensures its dancefloor-ready. There really are no words.

“It is hard – some say harder – to break into US dance charts than the pop charts, due to every heavyweight star in the world wanting a dance/club chart hit these days; just ask Coldplay,” says the facilitator of the hook-up, Chris Murphy. “To see both artists collaborate together on Sun In Cuba and have so much fun is a pleasure for me.”

I love this guy's logic and it's something I'm going to start applying to my own life, ending all my statements with 'just ask Coldplay'.

Well, if you keep the first 10 - 15 seconds, and remove tit-shakin' lady, the video and the rest of the track altogether, it's actually not that bad.


I hope he at least got a lot of money for doing this. :o

Why would you get rid of the tit shaking lady!?!

Oops. :D
I meant 'cause I don't like her singing. But I see why the guys would object to her removal... I didn't think about it from the male angle!
