Freddy’s Friday Night Dance Party!: Mo Drama Fo Yo Mama Edition!


Hey bois and gurls, I have a nice little Dance Party for all you mean faced, hard steppin’, sassy dance fiends out there tonight! Best part, it’s a semi-return to familiar territory, with tonight's jam being brought to us courtesy of A Nightmare on Elm Street film! I say semi-return only because the song featured doesn’t have an official movie related music video, and if any music video doesn’t at least a little something to do with the movie, I would rather find a clip from the movie (which wasn’t happening either), or something fan made…which is the case here tonight. Whatever, clips are awesome, especially when they are clips from Nightmare movies! The song…Anything, Anything (I’ll Give You) from Dramarama!

Written by Dramarama lead singer, John Easdale, Anything, Anything (I’ll Give You) is one of many classic tracks from Renny Harlin’s entry into Freddy’s world, with 1988’s, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master. While I pretty much love, or at least enjoy, many of the songs featured here at Freddy’s Friday Night Dance Party, Anything, Anything (I’ll Give You) is a fucking Awesome, Awesome (For Real) song and one of my favorites ever since I was young enough to smoke. This one is right up there with the more recent Dance Party tune, Pet Sematary from The Ramones, and that says a whole heck of a lot. An amazing song, that still rocks so hard even to this day and one that I will always listen to when I practice my yellow belt Karate while in my bedroom. Face me, Krueger.


  1. Love this song. Its my favorite time of the week kids! Let's bust a move!

  2. Yeeeeeah, BOYEEE! This song makes me want to get as crunk as humanly possible!

  3. Yeah, I've always liked this song too. It's actually on some 80's new wave compilation CD that I have which is weird, because "Rock and Roll High School" by the Ramones is on there too- I mean, since when have the Ramones been considered "new wave"? I wouldn't consider "Anything Anything (I'll Give You)" to be new wave either, but whatever.

  4. Haha! This track always makes me wanna sign up at a dojo :) Very nice choice. I never went and found out who song this track but I've always liked it.

    Thanks for this little bit of history and the urge to watch this film for what I'm sure is the millionith time.

    I wonder if I'll get a door prize for doing so.

    Thanks for being a blog...


  6. Dorian: I definitely wouldn't consider either one new wave, but they are both awesome songs. Anything is one of those songs that's got a punk feel to it in a way.

    Ashlee: Ha, yeah, I've have seen all the Nightmare films sooo many times and I definitely thought that Alice's brother was so cool! Now I want to watch it again too!

    Olive: I'll scope it out right now!
