You must not act surprised when I inform you that dysfunctional relationship is a product of today

Writing a talk about stable cohomology and listening to my “Unplayed” playlist on iTunes, as one does.  Encountered a much-beloved and almost-forgotten piece of collegiana:  “Dysfunctional Relationship,” by Consolidated.  Glum radical politics over beats and scratches, somehow wooden and charming at once.   Was there ever another dance track that asked the backup vocalists to repeatedly sing the word “symptomatic?”  Doubtful.  If your memory of US culture between 1988 and 1992 is in any way fond, you really want to watch the video.
