Hey, it’s Rich Dale! Did you ever have a song that you heard just once and it really got stuck in your head? In a good way, not like “Baby Shark”. I’ve had several of those actually. I’d hear a song on the radio once, then never again — and I’d keep it in mind until I’d run into it in one of those bins of discount 45’s and snap it up.
Anyway, this is a song I heard once in 1985, and I haven’t found a good recording of it until now! David Letterman had an episode of his show that he called a “holiday film festival” where various celebrities made fun short films to show.
The contribution of the show’s band, Paul Shaffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band, was a music video for an original song called “Dress Cool”. And it was a great song!
About a year ago, I looked for it on YouTube and all I could find were a couple of videos posted by people who basically recorded it from TV on VHS. Those were pretty low quality and you could hear the audience laughing, etc.
But I just looked now and whaddaya know! Last December Will Lee, the bassist from World’s Most Dangerous Band, posted the actual video! So there it is up top. Enjoy!
