Ballroom Blitz

This past week, I was reminded of the bit of trivia whereby nobody seems to remember where the line in the Beastie Boys song “Hey Ladies” (“She thinks she’s the passionate one”) was originally lifted.  Answer:  Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz”.

I was first introduced to this song, as were many of my era, via Wayne’s World.

What I had utterly no idea, at least until I heard the studio version of the song, was that the introduction to the song was the inspiration to My Chemical Romance’s beginning of the song “Vampire Money”.
