More Pop Culture Wasteland: Ricky Gervais's Failed Singing Career
Ricky Gervais (The Office (UK), Extras) decided before entering comedy that he would have a go at the synth-pop heavy British pop world. The band, Seona Dancing, existed briefly between 1982-84.
What's catchier? David Brent's "Free Love Freeway" or Seona Dancing's...I don't know the name of this song actually.
Oddly enough, the band found success a year after they disbanded in 1985 with a hit single, "More to Lose," in all places...The Phillipines. Seona Dancing was in good company as The Zombies' 1964 single "The Way I Feel Inside," resurrected by Wes Anderson in the 2004 film Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, also became a huge hit there.
