In 1982, Charlene wanted to take a very short, very annoying journey to herself. Because she'd never been there.
You think she would have made it there after the original release of "I've Never Been to Me" in 1977, but she didn't. So there she was again five bloody years later, vowing she'd really make it this time. You go, girl.
No, really. Go.
Frankly, I think she started out there and never left. Oh, goody.
OF COURSE, having been to himself in 1981, Billy Idol could serve as Charlene's guide to that particular destination.
While they're doing some trip planning, you can go to the comments on SongMeanings and watch people argue over whether or not "Dancing With Myself" is about playing with oneself. Which would be a whole other kind of futility.
Wasting your time debating that, I mean. Or reading about debating that.
Or, yeah, for that matter, that.
