Break My Stride (Matthew Wilder) – day 6

Last night I had the strangest dream
I sailed away to China in a little rowboat to find ya
And you said you had to get your laundry clean…

What the very fuck are these lyrics? At the time of this song’s release I absolutely hated it. And, like so many other songs in my many countdowns, it was hearing them through Vinny’s lens that I eventually came to like and/or love them. I now love the bouncy pop of today’s hot mess of a classic, Break My Stride by Matthew Wilder. Even the mousy voice of the singer has grown on me to the point of having this in my top 10 of the year!

To quote one of the comments on this youtube link, In 1983: wtf; In 2019: masterpiece. I think that speaks volumes.

If nothing else, please enjoy the madness that is the eighties in this crazy-ass video that was clearly a snippet from an episode of Solid Gold (I spy Marilyn McCoo!) with those magical Solid Gold Dancers in their rarest of forms! I mean, WHY with the clown costumes? You are welcome!
