We Got The Beat

Let's round out today's blog offerings, my little celebration of feeling much better and happy, and well, Spring-y, with some tunes. Another installment of my walk down memory lane.

First up, "Obsession" by Animotion. This is one of those songs that I quite liked at the time (early 80s), but has sort of grown on me over the years. Blame nostaglia I guess. Snippets of this are being used on an ad on our tv screens at the moment, which made me think about hunting it down and sharing it. (Oh, and it makes a guest appearance in the gay rom-com "Adam & Steve", as part of a dance sequence with the Dazzle Dancers. )



Secondly, and still trapped firmly in the 80s from the early '90s, "Cruise Control" by New Zealand band The Headless Chickens. I used to love this song! "I've got my tv turned to Channel You", indeed.



Enjoy.

I know, right? Malcolm Getz does a passable job as a Dazzle Dancer in this film.

PS. Thanks for the comment, I was beginning to think I'd broken something or lost my readership. And yes, I know that makes me an obssessive comment whore. :)

Oh, you're just a whore in general! But you know I'm the same way. About the comments.
