My Music Monday
Being a young gay lad way back then, I was taken by Bronski Beat's "Hit That Perfect Beat" when I'd go to the Columbus Eagle.
It's not quite the same Bronski Beat as "Smalltown Boy" and "Why?".
Jimmy Somerville, who was lead vocalist for the band, left in 1984/1985 and was replaced by another singer, with whose name I am unfamiliar.
Mind you, none of Bronski Beat's music ever got me out to the dance floor. Well....maybe one or twice with this song, but I'd have to been pretty drunk.
However, with beer in hand and propped up against a wall, I probably grooved to it in my own way. To be Billy Idol about it, I was dancing with myself.....though only on the inside. My foot possibly tapping against the wall of which is was perched.
But I like the beat. I like the melody. I like the rhythm.....even 29 years later.
I no longer live in Columbus. The Eagle went kaput years ago. But I still have some of the music.
