“Jabdah” Is An Italian Pop Song About Jabba the Hutt. We Think.
There were many bad decisions made in the ’80s in music, fashion, and dance. Apparently in Italy, they made those bad decisions within the space of one music video. One insanely catchy music video.
We’re not sure why it’s necessary to jump around like that while playing a synthesizer, but we assume he knows what he’s doing.
This is courtesy of ’80s Italian synthpop band Koto. It’s actually part of a synthpop genre called “spacesynth”, which generally played off the popularity of “Star Wars” and “Star Trek” in the early ’80s to push awful dance music.
Still, this video has taught us quite a bit. Italian taste is overrated. Synthpop is insanely catchy no matter how old it is and how weird the video is. And also the ’80s were terrible for Italy.
