These guys helped change the face of rock and roll from same ole same ole to something more energetic. Iggy & the Stooges, Joy Division and others also played a role but the Sex Pistols stood out from the rest.


And your basic throwback rockabilly number by Rev Horton Heat.
Rockabilly was the original punk rock.

I was watching Hill Street Blues when they mentioned the play "cosi-fon-tuti" and I thought "wait a second, Squeeze did a bit of a spoof with the album "cosi-fon-tuti-fruity"....'hits of the year' was a favorite in my circles back then but I was the only one in my crowd who knew what album it was on.

I remember once I saw it on TV a long time ago, the melody was very memorable, but I found out what it was only about 20 years later, when I saw it on the Internet -
Bonnie Tyler - Holding Out For A Hero

"Walk and Talk like Angels" by Toni Childs, 1988. Anita Skorgan (who I had not heard of prior) came up with a somewhat twangy version.

I am not particularly a dance-music enthusiast but I have found some that I like (such as Little Boots, "Satellite" and others).

A rather haunting song is from Rufus (du Sol) (they're Australian) "New Sky", especially a part just before the 3-minute point.

I bought a double cd a while back called "ultimate 90's" that had that song on it. It had what would have been called 'altrrnative' music like New Order 1963, Peter something or other a great song called "cuts you up", and a bunch of other borderline dance music.

I remember that one, though I haven't heard it in ages.

Some more dance music from back then to get stuck in your head -
