Track of the Day: 'Le Responsable Revisite'
Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.
Emily Hutchinson revives our reader series of weird workout songs with an obscure French one:
Pretty much the whole of Junior Senior’s album D-D-Don’t Stop the Beat works for me when running (especially “Rhythm Bandits,” “Move Your Feet,” and “Shake Your Coconuts”).
But the weirdest song—I can’t even remember where I first heard it—is Plaisir de France’s “Le Responsable Revisite.” I can’t even buy this anywhere! So I have to have it queued up on YouTube to work it in, but that’s how good it is.
