ADAM ANT: DESPERATE BUT NOT SERIOUS … AND A DANDY IN THE UNDERWORLD

Adam Ant highwaymanBalladeer’s Blog’s opening subject for my new “Give Them A Shoutout Before They’re Dead” category comes to a close. This is the last go ’round for Adam Ant (Stuart Leslie Goddard) so I made it a Double Feature.

First up, it’s Desperate But Not Serious, which is not only a very catchy song but also gets featured in an accompanying music video … from the 1980s. Even if you had no idea about ANYTHING that happened in the 1980s you would STILL be able to guess it was a 1980s music video. 

Then, wrapping things up, is Adam’s cover of A Dandy in the Underworld, done in honor of one of his idols: Marc Bolan from T-Rex.

Here they are! Next time around I’ll focus on a different figure or group.
