T here is a period in pre-adolescence when a child can rattle off the names of twenty or more perfectly serviceable dinosaurs: brontosaurus, stegosaurus, allosaur, dimetrodon, elasmosaur, plesiosaur, etc. Iím a long way removed from adolescence, but Iíd guess Iím still good for at least a dozen dinosaurs. (Never trust anyone who canít name more than five.) Which brings us to the four dinosaurs I found this morning. Mercifully, there arenít a million versions of ďWalk the DinosaurĒ roaming the earth. (Merciful because I donít have time to play the dino tracker today.) The US 12-inch contains most of them: the new york dangerous mix (clubosaurus), bruceís prehistoric dub (instrumentosaurus), the debunking of uri geller mix (oddosaurus) and the 7-inch version (megahitosaurus). Unfortunately, I have no idea what this song is about because thereís so much junk culture floating in it: miami vice, elvis presley, nuclear missiles. Destiny collided with the dinosaur again when the song (natch) was nicked for The Flintstones soundtrack.
