WEDNESDAY CLUB - Ciccone Youth - Into the Groove(y)

MIDWEEK CRISIS you feel a little side tracked, come to WEDNESDAY CLUB we've got Ciccone Youth and they will soon have you back in the groove



CICCONE YOUTH - Into the Groove(y) (1986)

Did you watch the Super bowl on Sunday night all you NFL fans, wasn't it good. Half time Madonna herself and what about that entrance?. It was a real treat and as for these Cheer Leaders well, I don't know about you but I think they should bring then over for the Queen's 60 anniversary celebrations. Come on girls! will you come over?.

I first heard  "Into the Groove(y)" in 1986, it was on a sampler CD and I thought it was a brilliant take on the  Madonna song, (which isn't too shabby either) in fact it is up there with my favourite covers of all time.

Ciccone Youth was a side project by Mike Watt and Sonic Youth. It was released in 1986. The Guys stated how they used to see Madonna all the time hanging out or performing at the NYC clubs before she became famous, but they didn't really like her style at first. Apparently Madonna dated a mutual friend. After her MTV live show they start liking her stuff and they realised her ironic pop style and all the media hoopla Madonna generated. Especially the fashion and style. Her record label wanted to sue them but Madonna stopped it from happening and gave them full clearance. Well done Madonna.
Now I know you're mine
Of course every one knows Madonna's surname, hence the name Ciccone Youth.

This has got an air of NIN about it, brilliant cover. Don't think I'd even heard it before!

This is a fantastic cover, really good especially when they sample Madonna voice. I remember that you raving about this song at the time. Didn't that sampler have a song by Half Man, Half Biscuit?
