Toni Basil - Hey Mickey


On this date in 1981, Toni Basil released her second single, "Mickey". It was backed by "Hanging Around". On other versions, it was backed by "Thief On The Loose". The A side appeared on her debut album, Word Of Mouth, as did "Thief On The Loose". The other track was a non-LP track. The single reached the #1 spot on the U.S. singles chart and the #2 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Philadelphia actress/choreographer ventured into music briefly and, of course, MTV made her a household name when the video for this song got heavy airplay. She released two albums in total.
