Friday earworm: Adam Ant's 'Stand and Deliver'
"I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to mention!" A lot of '80s fans were probably introduced to Adam Ant through tunes like Goody Two Shoes or Strip. For me, it was this one: Stand and Deliver. To this day, if I need an afternoon pick-me-up, this is my go-to song.
If you're a British fan of Stuck in the '80s, you're rightfully shaking your head. This song, released in 1981, was actually Adam Ant's biggest hit of all in the U.K., debuting at No. 1 and staying there for five glorious weeks.
Thankfully, Stand and Deliver still makes Adam's setlist, so we'll get a chance to rejoice again when he plays it Feb. 11 at Orlando's Hard Rock Live. I'll be there. Not too late for you to buy a ticket too. "The devil take your stereo and your record collection!"
