a monkey that will go ape
I like plenty of quote unquote "good" and/or "authentic" dance music too, and so do many of those other nominally non-dance music people. I like it for basically the same reasons I like The Rhythm of the Night. That song has a particular emotional resonance, but so do other things sometimes.some punks and music critic types always tend to like the worst dance music for some bizarre reason.
The true anti-snobbery, which I got into upthread, is the inevitable retroactive push to recuperate cheese into the cool-industrial complex of reappraisal, revival, curated reissues, etc instead of being able to just unapologetically like it on its own terms.
