BREAK MACHINE - "STREET DANCE" (1984)
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
So, who had a go at break dancing back in the eighties? I can't remember ever trying it, although living out in the sticks meant that you didn't really get to hear much about the latest dance crazes!Break Machine reached #3 in March 1984 with their debut single Street Dance, also known as "that song with the whistling in" at my school.
The rap/dance song was taken from the self-titled debut album which peaked at #17 in the UK album charts. Street Dance reached #1 in several European countries including Sweden, Norway and France.
The producers behind Break Dance were also responsible for The Village People, and the group's front man, Keith Rodgers, is still creating music using the name SugaBear.
