I’ve always been a little afraid of dance music, even though I love to dance. (I think I just had a few bad experiences with tracks that had no lyrics. I like words.) But now, I’m totally diggin’ Cyndi Lauper’s new song “Into the Nightlife” (video below), and I’m ready to give the genre another try — if you’ll help me. What other songs might I like? Again, keeping in mind that I like words. And, for what it’s worth, that I’m still obsessed with Duran Duran’s electro-set versions of “All She Wants Is” and “I Don’t Want Your Love.”
