A song that makes you want to dance
Dancing With Myself by Billy Idol
Recently I went to an Andy Black concert. Now, I don’t know any of Andy Black’s music past Knives and Pens and The Mortician’s Daughter from his Black Veil Brides days. I had honestly just gone to see William Control. But one thing Andy Black did all kinds of right was playing a cover of this song, because immediately it got me moving and singing.
I wasn’t always into 80’s music. My mom loved it, and I didn’t want to like anything my mom liked so I rejected it. It wasn’t until a boyfriend liked 80’s music that I started to get into it. And once I started there was no stopping me. I have a lot of love for Billy Idol, and especially this song. I can’t hear this song without moving in some way, from a toe tap to full on dance mode. A friend in high school actually introduced me to Billy Idol, and I have fond memories of listening to his music in gym class with her.
