Toni Basil, Mickey [Single] (1981)
I’m sure loads of people hate this song – but I wouldn’t save I’ve ever hated it. It’s been just about all I’ve known by Toni Basil, I was never keen to do any digging to find other gems – though I don’t mind the B-side here. I only bought this recently – thinking it would be fun for Oscar – and he did take to it straight away. But almost as soon as I left the store I realised I’d really bought it for myself – a thing to have, 80s DJ nights or whatever. And to play every now and then on my own – like some guilty pleasure I guess. I always (kinda) liked this song…still (kinda) do.
