Weeknight ’80s Dance Party: 4/20/11

Written by Music, Weeknight '80s Dance Party

Put on your dancing shoes and strap on your guitar. It’s time to rock a little and dance a little at the Weeknight ’80s Dance Party.

So, it looks like you guys enjoyed last week’s Dance Party. I’m glad — I had fun putting it together and even more fun dancing around my living room listening to the finished mix.

A few of this week’s remixes are 100% ridiculous and unnecessary, but, to me, that just makes them more fun. And if you’re someone who can’t stand your favorite rock song having a dance remix, then you should just move along.

For the record: the Huey Lewis remix included here makes me incredibly happy. Go ahead and judge me all you want. I don’t care.

Also, I know that Starship remix is a hot mess — I think it’s hilarious, so I included it to give you a good laugh.

Alright, enough talk. Let’s dance.

INXS – Devil Inside (Extended Mix)
