Hello, hello, hello, hello!
It’s Friday night here in the UK, and that can mean only one thing: more tunes to add to the Friday Night Music Club playlist.
Tonight’s 5 sees us remaining firmly in 80s territory, and with me providing a lesson in DJing: it’s not always about playing the records you like. Sometimes, you have to play the ones that your crowd will like.
Such is the case with the first two songs in tonight’s list. These are definitely not my favourite songs by these artistes:
(For the record, my favourite Bowie song is…fuck, I don’t know…where do you start?? Right now, it’s probably “Life on Mars”….later tonight it’ll probably be “Absolute Beginners”…tomorrow, or maybe even later tonight, it will be…oh this is too hard. It’s not possible to have just the one favourite Bowie song, in the same way as it’s not possible to have just the one favourite toe)
(For the record, this is much easier: my favourite Duran song is “Hungry Like The Wolf”)
Sometimes I like to slot songs together which kinda sound a little similar, or which remind me of each other, and such is the case with the next one:
I dunno what it is about that, but when I hear either of those two, I immediately want to hear the other straight afterwards. You’re welcome.
Finally this week, we start to move into slightly dancier waters, with a song that always takes me back to my clubbing days:
More soon. (Next Friday, to be precise).
