The Sweet – Ballroom Blitz

Today’s jam is one of my all-time favorite tracks, Ballroom Blitz. A toe-tapping party song originally performed by The Sweet back in 1973. The song was inspired by their show at the Grand Hall in Kilmarnock, Scotland where they were driven off stage by a horde of bottle-weilding drunkards.
