Ballroom Blitz was the favourite song of my beloved wife. Last saturday she passed away due to caner. On her funeral this friday we will play the song when leaving the church. As a teenager she was deeply in love with Andy Scott and therefore her son was named so..... Rest in peace, dear Angel.....
Anthony Moss
I’m proud to say it was the first 45 I bought with own money. So proud of that fact! Gives me real credibility in my opinion!
Arthur Baker
It's a shame Rolling Stone didn't include the song into its \
Back2TheRoots
I listened to this song 45 years ago in Iran, of all places, and 45 years later listening to it again brings back so much memory. I used to listen to it over and over and over. So full of energy. Ah, to be young and care free.

If there's anything to say about Sweet, It was that they were way ahead of there time. Listen to Fox on the Run, Set me Free etc......

Okay\nAlright fellas, let's go!\n\nOh it's been getting so hard\nLiving with the things you do to me\nMy dreams are getting so strange\nI'd like to tell you everything I see\n\nOh, I see a man at the back as a matter of fact\nHis eyes are as red as the sun\nAnd the girl in the corner let no one ignore her\nCause she thinks she's the passionate one\n\nOh yeah! It was like lightning\nEverybody was fighting\nAnd the music was soothing\nAnd they all started grooving\n\nYeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah\nAnd the man in the back said everyone attack\nAnd it turned into a ballroom blitz\nAnd the girl in the corner said boy I want to warn you\nIt'll turn into a ballroom blitz\nBallroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz\n\nOh reaching out for something\nTouching nothing's all I ever do\nOh I softly call you over\nWhen you appear there's nothing left of you\n\nAnd the man in the back is ready to crack\nAs he raises his hands to the sky\nAnd the girl in the corner is everyone's woman\nShe could kill you with a wink of her eye\n\nOh yeah! It was electric\nSo perfectly hectic\nAnd the band started leaving\n'Cause they all stopped breathing\n\nYeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah\nAnd the man in the back said everyone attack\nAnd it turned into a ballroom blitz\nAnd the girl in the corner said boy I want to warn you\nIt'll turn into a ballroom blitz\nBallroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz\n\nOh yeah! It was like lightning\nEverybody was fighting\nAnd the music was soothing\nAnd they all started grooving\n\nYeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah\nAnd the man in the back said everyone attack\nAnd it turned into a ballroom blitz\nAnd the girl in the corner said boy I want to warn you\nIt'll turn into a ballroom blitz\nBallroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz, ballroom blitz\n\nIt's it's a ballroom blitz\nIt's it's a ballroom blitz\nIt's it's a ballroom blitz\nYeah, it's a ballroom blitz\n\n\n\n\nYou're welcome😁

A classic band like sweet never gets old
Derpycopper Fox
Omg this is still popular
Dylan A. Kent
Brian had one of the best voices in rock and roll. Also, the Queen sound came DIRECTLY from Sweet.
Foxy-On-the-Run
To all the people commenting that they look faggy or like girls or whatever, rockstars used to look like rockstars and not like the guy making your frappacino at Starbucks.
Frank Gross
Over 40 years later and this song never sounds old. Awesome!.

Not only was the music badass in the 70s, but the boys weren’t bad looking either 😍 I’m 19 and I think they’re all gorgeous!
Matthew Roberts
Who is here in 2019? This song is timeless!
Meme mc Cream
These guys deserve more fame, so underated of a band
Michael Tabor
Time to get more glam rock in the hall of fame !\nWhy not sweet??\nTons of hits & arguably more influential on 80s hard rock /glam metal then anyone else \nThem or a T. rex? Sweet had more hits on America
Momo Animations
Suicide Squad? Nope, Regular Show
Mr. Johnny Doggs
These dudes might have dressed funny, But they were LOUD and HEAVY live. listen to the Live in Denmark album. Sweet was way ahead of their time.

After the million times I’ve heard this song in my lifetime, it’s hilarious to put the visual to it! Just awesome. We need more capes in today’s music.

Эх! Гдеже вы мои вороные?! Седьмой десяток пошел, а сколько эмоций и тихой грусти пришло, жив еще курилка!

Does anyone know what was Connolly’s vocal range? Lowest and highest notes he could sing. I can’t find that anywhere and it’s popular to talk about octaves these days.lol

I have the United States and the UK version of Desalination Blvd with my Sweet Collection . They are better than Queen , but I do not take anything away from Queen and what they have done .
The Yorkshire Carper
Awesome track 👌🏻
Val Baladjar
I was born in the good old USSR, and I absolutely love this song. We used to listen to Sweet in our tiny communal flat in Moscow, where we had to share our kitchen and bathroom with three other families. There was general lack of food and entertainment but vodka was the fuel that kept us alive. Those were the days, my friends.
Victor Salinas
the best song rock of the 70\

nodak01
I don't think I've heard this in over 35 years. The weird thing was that I thought I recognized the title & as soon as they started to play, not only did I recognize it, I remembered all the lyrics! Makes me wonder how much more minutiae is floating around in my mind.
