Toni Basil – Mickey (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th November 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

REQUEST

“Mickey” is a 1982 U.S. new wave song recorded by singer and choreographer Toni Basil. Written by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn as “Kitty”, it was first recorded by UK popular music group Racey during 1979. Toni Basil changed the name from Kitty to Mickey to make the song about a man, and because she was fond of The Monkees’ lead singer Micky Dolenz after meeting him on the set of their movie Head as a choreographer. A music video for the song, featuring costuming and choreography inspired by cheerleader dance routines, was played heavily on MTV.

The single scored number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week and number two in the UK singles chart. The song was Basil’s only Top 40 success, making her a “one-hit wonder”. It is named #5 on VH1’s 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of all time, #16 on 20 to 1’s Top 20 One Hit Wonders Countdown and #7 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the ’80s. It has also appeared on countless Greatest or Best lists and countdowns.
