If you only have the chance to check out one of these tunes Please. Please. Please check out the 'Funky Chicken' nugget, not just for the most eye blinding explosion of spectacular clobber ever seen at any single event.
But also the collective display of shaking, strutting and group frugging - it's like Heronymous Bosch flash mobbing..
