Let's Dance

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


Saturday 9: Let's Dance (1983)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

In memory of David Bowie (1947-2016). 

1) In this song, David encourages his partner to "put on your red shoes and dance." 
When did you last dance?
Sadly, I don't remember

2) Mr. Bowie recalled that he and choreographer Toni Basil developed a dance step 

now known as "the moonwalk" for his 1974 tour, nearly a decade before Michael 
Jackson performed "Billie Jean." Can you think of something you should have gotten 
credit for, but didn't?
Nope, I don't need accolades!

3) Similarly, the band Roxy Music was upset because Bowie copied their "catsuit look" for his own stage wardrobe and made it famous. What do you usually wear, Monday through Friday?

Jeans, tshirt sweatshirts, 

4) David Bowie was particular about the aftershave he wore,
 and one of his favorites was by Guerlain. Do you regularly 
apply cologne or aftershave?
Every time I pass the bathroom!!! hahaha

5) In school, David's best subject was art. Think back to your 

own school days. In which class did you excel?
History. Mrs. Murdock in Volney and Mr Garchar in CHS

6) In addition to art and music, David Bowie displayed a keen 

head for business, leaving a fortune of more than $600,000,000. 
Would you describe yourself as "good with money?"
Better than most.

7) Bowie also appeared in a variety of movies from 

The Man Who Fell to Earth to Zoolander
Who is your alltime favorite movie actor?
Clint Eastwood.

8) One of Bowie's hits is "Life on Mars."

If you had the opportunity to travel into space, would you take it?
in a heartbeat!!

9) The creators of SpongeBob Square Pants are huge 

Bowie fans and were thrilled when, in 2007, he
 appeared in an episode. Sam suspects that she may 
be the only person who hasn't seen that cartoon show. 
What about you? Have you ever watched an episode of 
SpongeBob, start to finish?
Yep, I spent every day with 2 of my nieces, so yep
...start TO finish, and videos and the movie. 


  1. I think I would go into space, too.

  2. My nieces and nephews are the reason I may have seen Spongebob, too, although I don't remember watching an entire episode.

  3. Clint is really something isn't he. As old as he is and still the ultimate man's man.

  4. I am with you on the whole dance thing. I have no idea nor do I care, when I last danced.

    1. I used to love to dance!! Back in the seventy's ... we went dancing all the time, but now, eh. Saturday nights consist of watching old Blue Bloods and ... I guess that s it!! hahaha
