Song of the day: Marty Graveyard – "Do You Really Wanna Dance?"

June 12, 2012

I spotted today’s song over at the Power Pop Overdose blog (Hi, Curty Ray! – and thanks for letting me know about the song).

I like the song (it’s sunny power pop with bubblegum vocals) and wasn’t thinking of putting it here, but then I watched the video…

Marty Graveyard – “Do You Really Wanna Dance?” (2012)

Throughout that video I was thinking of two entirely disparate things: West Side Story and the Bronski Beat. I must say that for me it’s an alarming combination, as I’m a big fan of West Side Story but a big non-fan of the Bronski Beat.
