I'll give it a listen later, I'm intrigued tho not surprised. It's a great pairing when you think about it.

BTW, who's that in your icon...Souxsie Soix or Vanessa Paradis? Looks like both, but I wanna see. cool

I love the song obviously. Even though I had no idea who John Lydon was at the time when I first heard it back in '84. lol

Glad to know I got it right. I've been wondering about it when I see your icon. cool

You didn't know he was the scary Sex Pistol guy? 84 was when the punkers and the rappers still hung out. I recall the whole overlap. Good times.

I hardly knew anything about anything back then. lol Among my small circle of friends, it was all about hip hop and Prince in 1984. I didn't start listening and learning about other types of music until college really.

Funny that. For me it was late 90s HS that I started w/ sounds other than your usual pop/rnb/hip hop stuff.

In retrospect, it's so funny to look at how Afrika, the Furious Five, etc dressed up. That was quite punk! wink

True, in the early videos it was all leather and spikes, but by the mid 80s rappers started dressing down to look more street.

John Lydon did a lot of interesting music back in the early 80s like this duet and the Metal Box and The Flowers Of Romance Public Image Ltd. albums. All great stuff.
