Musical Musings – My Clubbing Days
I’m feeling a little nostalgic for my youth this week. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve properly gone out and I was alarmed at just how apt this e-card was when I saw it on Facebook on Friday afternoon:
Man, I used to rock Friday and Saturday nights – those were the days…
The real kicker is that next week will mark 12 years since I got married – see, it has been a long time since I really let loose and partied!
I have fond memories of the nightclub scene in Newcastle in the 90’s. You would go in early to all the places that would have a cover charge later on and then walk the streets from venue to venue to find the spot with the best music.
I had the best of times at Leroys, Fannys, Jack’s on King, The Castle and The Mercury Bar but we would always end the night at the optimistically named “The World’s Biggest Disco” at Newcastle Workers Club. It had the biggest dance floor and always played the hits and the classics we liked to dance to best.
So indulge me while I play a few tunes today that bring back all those wonderful youthful and carefree memories for me. This is for my clubbing buddies, still some of my best friends to this day!
Salt ‘N Pepa – Push It
Inner Circle – Sweat (A La La Long)
DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince – Boom Boom Shake Shake the Room
C & C Music Factory – Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)
I would love to hear some of the songs that take you back to your youth – so what did you like to dance to?
