BILLY SQUIER: MY KIND OF LOVER

Actually Billy Squier and I are just platonic friends. Honest. It’s another musical shoutout from Balladeer’s Blog. It’s not My Candelabra, though that DOES sound like what Billy is singing. Nor is it Joe Kenda Lover, which would be just plain silly. No, it’s Squire Squier’s hit song My Kinda (Kind Of) Lover.

ADAM ANT: RIP DOWN

Adam Ant 7Welcome to Balladeer’s Blog’s next-to-last shoutout to Adam Ant aka Stuart Leslie Goddard. Just one more time after this and then I’ll move on to someone else.

Previously I’ve taken a look at Adam’s hit songs Goody Two Shoes, Vive Le Rock, Gotta Be A Sin, Miss Thing, Room at the Top and Made of Money plus his cover of the Doors hit Hello, I Love You

This time around the featured song is Rip Down which – along with The Mohair Locker Room Pinup Boys – was often lumped into that VERY short-lived rock subgenre called Cabaret Rock here in the U.S.

Here it is:

ADAM ANT: MISS THING

Adam Ant 5Time once again for a Balladeer’s Blog shoutout to the neglected Adam Ant (Stuart Leslie Goddard).

Previously I’ve posted items regarding Adam’s hit songs Goody Two Shoes, Vive Le Rock and Gotta Be A Sin in addition to his cover of the Doors’ hit Hello, I Love You.

Adam Ant was far more than than just the lead singer. He co-wrote the songs – most notably with Marco Pirroni – and played bass guitar as well as acoustic guitar.

Hell, he even played the harmonica.

This time around it’s the shagadelic song Miss Thing.
