Anyway, my favorite LB story is this one: I was in an aerobic dance class and the instructor said that our next routine would be to "Gloria". My first thought was, "U2? Cool!" and then realized that it was the Branigan song of the same name.

Here's the U2 song. It does have a good beat, but most people would have a hard time dancing to it.

And the Laura Branigan song.

I would have thought of Them/Van Morrison first, and I was in diapers when the U2 and Branigan songs were released.
