Dancing With Myself

1) This song is one of Billy Idol's biggest hits. Can you name another? "White Wedding"

2) When is the last time you danced around your home? it's actually been awhile, although I danced in the car yesterday

3) In this song, Billy says he dances with his own reflection. Is there a mirror in the room you're in right now? there is not

4) Dancing with Myself is also the name of Billy Idol's 2014 autobiography. Let's say you're going to write your life story. What do you title it? I don't have a clue how to answer this...

5) This month, Billy resumes his 2014-15 concert tour in New Orleans. Have you ever been to Louisiana? I have not been, it's on my bucket list

6) In 1980, when "Dancing with Myself" was first popular, VHS players were all the rage. Do you still have yours? I do not, but for some reason I still have a VHS rewinder

7) In 1980, The Love Boat was getting good ratings. Have you ever taken a cruise? also on my bucket list

8) Sally Field won her first Oscar in 1980 for the movie Norma Rae. Five years later she won a second Oscar for Places in the Heart and delivered one of the most quoted acceptance speeches in Academy history. Do you remember what she said? "You like me, you really like me." or something similar

9) In 1980, People magazine named Stephen King one of the most intriguing people of the year because he had two big paperback bestsellers -- The Dead Zone and The Shining. Do you have a favorite Stephen King book? I think my favorite is Different Seasons, a collection of novellas

New Orleans is an interesting place to visit. Lots of cool architecture.

My wedding was filmed on VHS a very long time ago. I have no idea where it is.

i dance in the car all the time :) i keep my windows up so others can't hear me sing when i sing along with the radio, and luckily the windows are tinted so they can't see me dance, either! :P
