Listen to Sweet’s ‘The Ballroom Blitz’ from ‘Suicide Squad’ — Classic British Rock At It’s Best (Video)

sweet ballroom blitz top of the pops

British rock band Sweet’s ‘The Ballroom Blitz‘ was featured in the just released movie Suicide Squad, and I had to give the song a shout out today, as this was one of my favorite songs from my childhood.

The Ballroom Blitz‘ was first released in 1973 in the UK and Europe as a single, and then on Sweet’s North American version of the album Desolation Boulevard in 1974.┬áThe track was written by┬áNicky Chinn and Mike Chapman.

Weirdly, however, and especially as how popular it was, it was never released on a UK album, except for compilations.

Watch Sweet performing ‘The Ballroom Blitz‘ live on the classic British music show Top of the Pops way back in 1973 in the video below. You can pick up Desolation Boulevard on all major digital music sites.
