Night Music: Dexy’s Midnight Runners, “Burn It Down”

I loved this song. Bought the UK single for beaucoup dollars, and played the crap out of it. For me, this was Dexy’s. Enjoy the video:

The notable aspect, of course, apart from the poetic intonations, are the cheesy horn parts. The English loved these cheesy horn parts, which were more beacons than swing items, which I attribute to the popular preference for disco beats above all others.

In any case, Dexy’s made much more pandering music later. Read more Brendan Behan and all is good.

I mean you.
