the Tuesday Song of the Week

Proof positive that the Eighties were the pinnacle of musical awesomeness* !!

'Dancing with Myself' - Billy Idol

A hundred years ago, I had a job with a videography company, as second camera for shooting weddings.  At one wedding, the couple's first dance was done to this song, and halfway through some angry old coot came storming to the DJ, demanding that the song cease, because it was inappropriate (i.e. not slow and mushy enough) for a couple's first dance.  

The DJ retorted, "I'm not takin' the heat for this.  This is the song they wanted."

*This assertion does not include Madonna and her ilk.
