This masterpiece album (RESULTS) came out just as I was hitting my NY/Fire Island stride (I had moved here in late 1984, from Podunk). I will forever associate RESULTS (esp. this song) with those glory days.
It's one of the best things she's ever done, in any medium. It's never gotten the respect it truly deserves. Not a SINGLE Grammy nomination. This was the beginning of the end of my interest in the Grammys.
And you are sure right about the "sure thing." It was surefire in those days. People yelled in delight (and probably other things). I loved it. A great time to be gay, alive and in shape. Woo hoooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
