Baby you're much too fast

x-posted from tumblr:

I wrote a scene in my recent fic Don’t Wait Up for Me where Bucky’s kind of almost half-dancing around the room and Sam asks him to teach him some of his old dance moves. In my head it was Little Red Corvette. 1999. All the Prince songs that are full of such joie de vivre that you can’t help but move to them, all on one of Sam’s favorite playlists.

I cannot really believe that he’s gone. We keep losing all these artists who have made such a difference in our lives, brought us so much joy and insight and beauty.

It's so generational, too. My facebook feed has been filled with woe, but my younger coworkers shrugged and moved on.

I've never understood that kind of thinking from young people, even when I was young. I loved knowing about earlier generations' works, I lived for that sort of thing. It's always baffled me how oblivious people are about the movers and shakers who changed the world enough for the things they enjoy now. But of course, I was always way out of step with everyone I knew.

I can't even get my mind around this one--like someone should have told today "No, I'm sorry, this is WRONG. Go back and do it right this time."

What does 2016 have against artists anyhow?





(So now I'm imagining what kind of moves "Kiss" would inspire.)

I thought of Kiss as a total classic swing step--that kind of loose, step step ball change spin kind of thing. I could totally see them doing it!

And then something very fancy during the riff bits...
