There was one he always used to play - a bit like Walking in Memphis but I think Tony something sang it? Long haired guy?
Were they not ALL long haired guys?
They mostly were … except the Bronski Beat.
Nope - not Huey and the News
Not that one - cracker though. Kinda heavy set bloke with a leather jacket I think. Not Springsteen - think there was a line something like ‘nobody got shot today in downtown LA’ ??? I could be imagining all this or mixing it up because I’m getting old but …
Not Forddeigner either Al
Not the bleedin Dunleary Rats who jumped the floundering ferry?
Ah no no no … something like Somewhere Down the Crazy River style
Which was nothing like Walking in Memphis. Just saying…
Great tune though.
Anyway enough of all that.
Absolutely LOVE that song.
Dancin’ in the Dark seemed to be played every week. Courtney Cox’s big break.
All time classic!
One of the meanest, tightest base and synth grooves in pop. And social commentary too!
