Toni Basil - Mickey

In 1983 Toni Basil had the biggest hit of her career and I had the perfect song to piss off my brother, Mick. I remember dancing around him singing this song when I was in 3rd form and he was in grade 6. I used to get rather sick of him telling me that his name - Michael- meant 'God-like'. Toni offered me a fitting revenge.

I loved Mickey so much & it's still a favourite. Thanks for giving me a giggle.

I loved, loved, loved (still do!!) this song.
I'm still good for every word and every move of the cheerleading routine...

When I was in about Year 8 or Year 9 at boarding school, we used to get taken on a Friday night during the middle of the year to a nearby boys' school where we did "ballroom dancing lessons". In addition to the slow rhythm, the quickstep, the waltz and the jive we were also taught a routine to Mickey. Everytime I hear it now I get flashbacks to ballroom dancing!!

I don't remember the first time I heard this song, but it now always reminds me of the end scenes of Bring It On!, oh and my girlfriends and I blasting it at our house in college. Thanks for the flashback.
