“Purple Rain” by Prince. “Careless Whispers” by WHAM! “Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats, when it meant more than an ’80s station on satellite radio. In junior high school, I spent most of the dances huddled with my girlfriends and whispering about the boys we liked. High school drifted into an experience of bodies tightly pressed on the dance floor.
I’ll be your freakazoid baby.
In college, I discovered musicians, not just bands. If a sexy man could play the guitar and sing to me … sigh. It made everything better. When I started covering bands, I fell in love with hot, strong female singers like mmmm, Bif Naked.
The subject of today’s blog, first dances, made me realize that none of my novels feature dancing. Music plays heavily, but no actual moving to the beat. I’ll have to fix that real soon. When it comes to Vampires, my favorite song continues to be “Bloodletting (The Vampire Song” by Concrete Blonde. It’s just too easy to imagine a few bloodsuckers swaying to the intoxicating beat.
