People who like disco music may also like the game of go – if Swede Chris Linn’s 1980 recording, The Game of Go (B-side to Santa Monica Blue Waves) was on the money. The song, whose chorus is: “Let’s play the game of go”, features such lyrics as:
I have to fight like mad;
You seem to catch up so easily
From the disadvantage that you had
as well as the hookline, Atari! Atari!
- all to a disco beat. Perhaps a Japanese-speaking reader can translate the spoken section halfway through.
