I wasn't exactly pining for it, just unexpected to hear a piece of my youth again in that context.

Found out first hand last night that Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" makes a pretty cool West Coast Swing, and so does "I Can't Go For That" by Hall and Oates.   Grin

I'm not sure why, but I find that surprising.  Shouldn't be, in an era when so many song were names after dances or vice versa.  (Everybody loves to cha cha cha and Twisting the Night Away are two good Sam Cooke examples And do't get me started on Smokey Robinson songs.  Back then,music was for dancing.  Very cool.

Piano Man is a VW tempo?

Thank I try to avoid unnecessary repetition and complacency at all costs. The bi motivator for me was the experience I had of no longer attending a certain dance because they kept using the SAME EXACT 15 SONGS EVERY TIME, GRRRRRRRR! Angry Roll Eyes
