What’s a Jango?

via Daily Prompt: Jangle

So I’ve had this song stuck in my head for a few days (don’t ask) and it kinda fits in with today’s prompt And they whirled and they twirled and they tangled/ singing a jinging a jangled or something like that. Huh, I finally looked the lyrics up, and I’ve been singing it wrong all these years… It’s: And they whirl and they twirl and they tango/ Singing and Jinging a Jango.  Oh well, it’s still the song that came to mind when I saw the prompt, so my earworm is now your earworm.  Here you go:

When I was a kid, Captain and Tennille were big, and Muskrat Love was a huge hit. I had no idea what a muskrat was, but thought it must be something like a regular rat and had all kinds of images of storybook mouse tea parties.  Only rats painting the town. But I’d never seen a muskrat, having never lived in the wetlands where they make their homes. Anyway, if y’all don’t know what a muskrat is, here’s a picture from the wiki page:

Not as cute as the song, but hey, what is? ^_^  Anyway, that’s what came to mind when I saw the daily prompt.  I’ve been musically inclined whenever I see the prompt lately. It’s either post videos or whine about the pain in my back. I think videos are way more fun. ^_^

The other song I thought of with the prompt “jangle” but figured everyone would be posting it. Ha!

    There are, as far as I can see, a lot of definitions, not of which seem to pertain to what you are looking for. I think, spelled with a “d” as in django, it means some kind of dance. The best I could get in English was “Jango is a very special and unique name given to only the greatest of heroes. The meaning of the name Jango is ‘The strong and amazing.’ It is also the name of a fiction book by William Nicholson, the second in his trilogy the Noble Warriors.”

    Also, there was Junior Army Navy Guild Organization — I’m pretty sure that doesn’t fit either 😀 But I think it is a part of a dance and possibly Malaysian.
