80s Music - Footloose Song and Final Dance (1984)

Footloose, footloose, kick off your Sunday shoes!  I don't know how you can listen to this song and not get up and dance to it.  No matter how many times I listen to this song (or watch this clip), I still boogey to it. Kevin Bacon was just awesome in the movie and he is definitely an awesome dancer, despite having a few dance doubles in the movie.  What I probably remember most about the movie is Ren's (Kevin Bacon's) style.  I must have worn ripped up light blue jeans, a white shirt / sweater, and sneakers for at least a few years as a kid.     

Kevin's still got the moves as he recently showed us on The Tonight Show.  

Shout out to Kenny Loggins who was an 80's music icon and performed "Footloose".  Other awesome songs on the soundtrack include "Let's hear it for the boy" and "Hurts so good".

Flashbacks:
-Gotta be the worst dancing ever by Woody (Chris Penn) at :032
-Ren's bowtie move at :052. That should be done by any guy ever dancing in a Tux.
-Unnamed pop lock dancer dude kills it at 2:34.  That is way beyond his time.
-Woody redeems himself at 3:22
