MINDS XMAS PARTY PLAYLIST : STEVE POLLARD'S CHOICE

SAFETY DANCE - MEN WITHOUT HATS

Over the next days we will post some of the hand - picked party tunes preferred by various Minds.

Steve Pollard has worked with Simple Minds since 1980, and if you have even seen SM live then almost without doubt it will have been Steve who designed the lighting and stage set on that tour.
Born and bred in Toronto, the hardest of workers, he is not immune to the party spirit. Is it a co-incidence that he chooses a tune from his fellow countrymen?

Peter MacCabeMen without Hats are brilliant and I thought the video to 'Safety Dance' was superb. Apparently they'd come all the way over from Canada to shoot that video in the Cotswolds

Stu McKayDam dam dam!!! Was going to nominate this but thought no one would get it! Fantastic song. As a kid on the waltzers the keyboards were mesmerising. OK wont be fooled again (The Who). Malky McLaren Double Dutch 😎👍💃

Alistair TaylorI still maintain this is the perfect pop song. If anyone missed it, their last album, Love In An Age Of War, is just as brilliant as their classic ones.

Lawrence LoweLol, oh my lordy Ally Louise, how amazing!!! Been playing this to all my friends when they feel down this year and we had such a laugh just last month, thinking about it. Mr kerr, You have made my day. When this cane came out I totally adored it. The video was such great fun ( really fancied the hippy girl lol). But actually the song has a great beat and lovely sentiment. Being a bit weird back then, it gave me heart that there were plenty of nutcases out there. It's 08.15 and the single is on the stereo now lol. On top if that, you Must listen to the funny versions if this - on you tube. This is the Glasgow remix. youtu.be/W7gyIRA1mXU

Alan F JonesClass choice. Remember buying and have still got the 12". Coming from Toronto Steve will I guess have frequented one of the finest record stores I have ever visited in the known universe, Sam the Record Man, sadly now closed. A Mecca for bands and artists when on tour, maybe you've shopped there too JK? You can dance if you wanno..!!
