Listen To This

Dexys in 1985, when Kevin Rowland realised that nothing is further out than looking totally straight. They then released an album (Don’t Stand Me Down) that the press didn’t get but now can’t get enough of. I Love You (Listen To This) could easily be my favourite Dexys tune (One Of Those Things off the same record runs it close, with Kevin’s impassioned realisation that ‘It all sounded the same’). Here are the group on performing live on The Tube in ’85. Kevin’s dancing at the three minute mark is a joy to behold.
