Bill Bailey dances to Metallica
Comedian Bill Bailey performed a tango to Metallica's Enter Sandman for the semi-finals for the BBC TV dance competition Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night.
Bill Bailey has been a metal and prog rock fan for years and he explained why he chose to dance to Enter Sandman.
â€œWhen I signed up to the show, I asked if I might be able to pick some of the music, and one of my choices was this iconic song, so I am utterly stoked to have been given it,â€ Bailey writes. â€œI imagine Dave Arch and his band will relish the chance to release their inner rock gods. Let Loose The Dave of Rock!
â€œThis anthem is one of Metallicaâ€™s biggest hits and has great drama to it, with one of the most famous riffs in the rock canon,â€ Bailey continues. â€œSo itâ€™s a brilliant song for a Tango â€“ rhythmic, powerful and full of atmosphere, and if I can channel just a little of this, Iâ€™ll be happy. And I might even get to air-guitar like a loon, which I know will end up as one of my favourite Strictly moments yet. Suffice to say it is one of my dream tracks.â€
