Demonic Jukebox*

Several people think Adam Ant's "Goody Two Shoes" belongs on the soundtrack of my life—"Don't drink, don't smoke/What do you do?" But for this week's Demonic Jukebox, I choose his racy 1985 song, "Strip"—"If I strip for you, will you strip for me?" I mean, that's more like it! I want to think that's what my life is all about! However, the music video, now over 20 years old, is shockingly tame. Adam does no more than flash a shoulder. Over and over again. If he shot that video today? At the very least, pubes. Sing it all week, folks:



[*Thusly titled because selected songs are so catchy that they will get stuck in your head all week, which is, frankly, demonic.]

  1. I was always partial to Desperate But Not Serious, myself.

    Have you noticed how much Adam Ant reminds one of Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, nowadays?

  2. I can't TELL you how gratifying it is to reach middle-age and see daily proof that "we're just following ancient history."
    So sexy! (well, back then . . . )
