4 June 2021 - Sheena Easton - Strut

This 1984 single, the lead single from her album A Private Heaven, was a huge hit almost everywhere in the world.... but not her native UK.  Go figure.  It was a departure from her more innocent love songs to a more adult, more suggestive sound - a sound she'd continue to pursue in a future collaboration with Prince.

I found early Sheena Easton to be boring, but 12-year-old Tony really enjoyed this song... and I still do.  Also, great, now you know how old I am.  

It seems noteworthy to say that she performed the song in a 1986 commercial in Japan while dressed as a geisha.
