It's on the radio ALL THE TIME in England, and I'd hazard a guess that it's pretty ubiquitous in the US too. It's a pretty good summer song. Light and catchy with a good beat.
Ross insists that the song is not a pop tribute to the dance stylings of a legendary front man. No. He believes that it is a reference to some long-forgotten etiquette. You see in days gone by, at formal events (generally weddings), there was a certain point in the evening where it was acceptable for smokers to light up and for gentlemen to remove their jackets. In English culture, this point in the evening is after the toasts. Specifically the toast to the queen.
My husband loves to bandy about long-forgotten knowledge such at this. Despite it's completely arcane nature it brings him pleasure. When we we've attended weddings together, he's frequently pointed out the uncouth men who removed their jackets prior to the toasts. (Never mind that they were summer weddings in Texas. My man in classy!) :)
At any rate. Ross loves to sing along to this tune and sub in the words "Remove my jacket" for "Moves like Jagger". It fits surprisingly well. It's pretty cute- if a little weird.
What completely outdated/useless knowledge do you carry around in your head?
