“Snake In The Grass” by Midnight Star – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Midnight Star is funk/dance/R&B group featuring Belinda Lipscomb, Bill Simmons, Bo Watson, Bobby Lovelace, Jeff Cooper, Kenneth Gant, Melvin Gentry, Reggie Calloway and Vincent Calloway. Their 80s funk was essential in bridging the gap between the pop and street dance sound. Their dance single “Snake In The Grass” from 1988 is the focus of this Disco Video Mix and is also one which brought a groove to my dance floor with its hypnotic sound.
I have taken scenes from the 1955 horror film, “Cult Of The Cobra Woman” for obvious reasons. It plays out when American G.I.s trespass on a Hindu ceremony featuring a woman who transforms herself into a cobra. The storyline is reversed and amended here for the cheating lover here but the slinky dance is the portion which is better cast in this Disco Video Mix.
The film was directed by Francis D Lyon
