51 Weeks: 51 Songs From the Past: Week 12: Stray Cats- Stray Cat Strut

I can’t believe it’s already week 12 of 51 Weeks: 51 Songs from the Past! Time is sure flying, isn’t it?

Stray Cat Strut was released in the U.K. in 1981, reaching 11 on the charts, and in the U.S. in 1982, topping at #5 by the group- Stray Cats.

The group’s sound blended elements of rockabilly and punk. And their visual style was unique as well, as you can see in the video. I like the 1950’s feel of the song and the video. I remember hearing this song as a teenager and thinking it was an old song. Having grown up listening to my dad’s 50’s and 60’s music, it was a surprise to find out that this was a new release.
