The Pointer Sisters had plenty of unbelievably cheesy songs, like "I'm So Excited" and "Jump (For My Love)." But they also had a handful of pretty solid pop songs: "Neutron Dance" (from the 1984 soundtrack of the excellent Eddie Murphy movie Beverly Hills Cop) is one of my favorites from them.
It's got a pretty slick synth beat and cool harmonies. Maybe I like it so much because it reminds me of the movie. It came along at the high-point in their career when they were having rapid-fire hits.
It's so cheesy, but musically so on point.. plus their vocals per usual were on fire with this. Still makes me laugh a bit that so you think you can dance australia did a pop jazz routine to this song lmfao (but it was cute).
