Saturday 9: Dancing with Myself

Saturday 9: Dancing with Myself (1980)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is one of Billy Idol's biggest hits. Can you name another?

A. No. I have never been a big Billy Idol fan.

2) When is the last time you danced around your home? 

A. It's been a while. It is hard to dance with a bum ankle.

3) In this song, Billy says he dances with his own reflection. Is there a mirror in the room you're in right now?

A. Yes. I read it was bad Feng Shui to sit with the door at your back unless you had a mirror to reflect the room. So I hung one up.

4) Dancing with Myself is also the name of Billy Idol's 2014 autobiography. Let's say you're going to write your life story. What do you title it?

A. Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen

5) This month, Billy resumes his 2014-15 concert tour in New Orleans. Have you ever been to Louisiana?

A. I think I might have passed through Louisiana on a drive to California but I am not certain. Otherwise, no.

6) In 1980, when "Dancing with Myself" was first popular, VHS players were all the rage. Do you still have yours?

A. I don't think so.

7) In 1980, The Love Boat was getting good ratings. Have you ever taken a cruise?

A. No.

8) Sally Field won her first Oscar in 1980 for the movie Norma Rae. Five years later she won a second Oscar for Places in the Heart and delivered one of the most quoted acceptance speeches in Academy history. Do you remember what she said?

A. You love me, you really love me, or something along those lines.

9) In 1980, People magazine named Stephen King one of the most intriguing people of the year because he had two big paperback bestsellers -- The Dead Zone and The Shining. Do you have a favorite Stephen King book?

A. Not really, no.


  1. Great questions and answers. Thanks for sharing...Blessings

  2. I wish merely "not being a fan" could preclude me from knowing some songs. Just the other day I was bemoaning that I know all the lyrics to "The Pina Colada Song." How I wish I could use that space in my brain for something better!

    I hope your autobiography title will be more positive next year. You and your hubs have had a hard ride, and you're due for some good times.

  3. I didn't know the Feng Shui tip, thanks for that!

  4. I didn't know that about the Feng Shui.... I may have to put up a mirror.

  5. that's interesting about your back to the door. i know i've heard about making sure your feet don't point toward the door. i guess i have to be sideways now!

  6. I thought it was a James Bond thing not to sit with your back to the door.
