MONO: Que Pasa/Mi No Pop I by Kid Creole and the Coconuts.

THE SONG: Que Pasa/Mi No Pop I.

WHO: Kid Creole and the Coconuts

WHY IT’S HOT:  Kid Creole and The Coconuts don’t get enough credit for their incomparable artistry via the genre-bending tunes they cranked out in their heyday. Darnell August and his bandmates combined tongue-in-cheek lyrics and sassy vocal arrangements with the best parts of salsa, world beat, funk, and rap at an alarmingly high clip.  “Que Pasa/Mi No Pop I”, which was featured in the seminal art flick “Downtown 81” is a perfect showcase for their talent. If you’re not dancing after the first few seconds, you need some spinach.

WANT MORE?: More Kid Creole and the Coconuts insanity with “I’m a Wonderful Thing Baby”.

WORDS: Greg Cee.
