Today I heard that Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex and general badassery fame had passed away. I immediately went to You Tube and played X-Ray Spex songs for an hour while drinking tea and chair dancing. Poly was an awesome person and music maker, and I think it’s an awesome legacy to leave if you inspire people to dance and sing. When I die I’d like to leave that kind of feeling with the people who loved me.
So here’s a video of me chair dancing to I’m a Cliche. I got a stitch from dancing so much but I couldn’t stop. Bonus: tea drinking, hairy armpits and no make up.
If you’ve never heard any X-Ray Spex songs, here’s a few to dance to.
Oh Bondage, Up Yours
I Can’t Do Anything
Thanks for making awesome music Poly Styrene.
