“Walk The Dinosaur” by Was (Not) Was

April 18 is National Velociraptor Awareness Day! The first velociraptor fossil was found in 1923. That’s not that long ago! It seems fairly odd to me that people had no awareness of the Tyrannosaurus until the Roaring Twenties.

The Dinosaur was a dance step that people did in the 1980s. One could WALK The Dinosaur and even KILL The Dinosaur.

The song “Walk The Dinosaur” reached No. 7 on the US chart in 1989, two years after hitting No. 10 in the UK. It became the biggest hit single for Was (Not) Was in the USA. It’s certainly not the band’s best track in my opinion, but it’s good fun.

Tim Curry’s Halloween Song

I am NOT talking about the Rocky Horror Picture show! I love Rocky, but I recently discovered that he appeared in a motion picture called The Worst Witch in 1986. He played the role of The Grand Wizard.

Here is a scene from that movie where he sings a fetching number about Halloween night.

The image below is a poster that promoted the movie.
