Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

After last week's brief hiatus (I hope you missed me), Freaky Friday returns with a slice of vintage '70s cheese from the wondrous land of Denmark: Tommy Seebach's "Apache." The song itself is a silly disco throwaway based around a repetitive riff, some wakka-wakka guitar effects and a typically meaningless vocal. On its own, it wouldn't qualify as much more than an amusing artifact of cheap, foreign disco novelty. But pair it with the weird video (unfairly labeled "Worst video ever" by the uploader of this version, the best I could find audio-wise) which features some sort of pagan-hippie, wannabe Native American camping trip fueled by Quaaludes and magic mushrooms, and you've got yourself the perfect antidote to working for the rest of the afternoon. It awaits you after the jump.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
