Doveman (aka Harlem-based musician Thomas Bartlett who plays with David Byrne, Elysian Fields and The National among others) has created a shoegazer/emo version of the entire Footloose Soundtrack and his reasoning for doing so is pretty intense. Go check it out. My favorite is “Holding Out For A Hero”
UPDATE: Doveman’s Footloose album can now be purchased from itunes.
