In the film “Risky Business,” Tom Cruise’s character dances in his underwear to which song?



Old Time Rock and Roll

Answer: “Old Time Rock and Roll” is a song recorded by Bob Seger on his 1978 album Stranger in Town.




The song was featured in the 1983 film Risky Business, starring Tom Cruise. Cruise’s character, Joel Goodson, famously lip-syncs and dances in his underwear as this song plays after his parents leave him home alone. It has since become a standard in popular music and was ranked number two on the Amusement & Music Operators Association’s survey of the Top 40 Jukebox Singles of All Time. The song remains a staple on classic rock radio.
