Thanks to HBO's constant streaming of the '80s teen dance classic Girls Just Want To Have Fun, I've always had a soft-spot in my heart for SJP and her dream to be on Dance TV. My cousin, Casey, and I would watch the thing over and over again--I could probably quote most of it if my life depended on it (which would be a weird thing for your life to depend on--when was the last time anyone was asked to rattle off Jonathan Silverman's dialogue at gunpoint?)
The film sports one of the best soundtracks of that decade--an extremely hard one to hunt down, btw. I took it upon myself (believe me, this is totally self-inflicted!) to record a cover of my favorite tune from the flick--Q-Feel's "Dancin' In Heaven (Orbital Be-Bop)." And since I can't actually play any instruments (which I plan to remedy this year with guitar lessons), I recorded the whole thing using vocals only. So...what it lacks in technical ability it more than makes up for in heart, much like Janey Glenn herself! Click...and "enjoy."
