Recommended Posts

There are some bloody fantastic records out there that sound great but when you try and bop to them they are a nightmare.Problem is I only realise when it is too late!

I admit to being a bit of a plodder nowadays,and these are just 3 that come to mind...

1.Admirations:You left me

2.Saints:I'll let you slide

3.Ascots:-Few feet from the gutter

1+2 Deceptivley fast...

3 Brilliant off-beat drum is a dancefloor killer!

I always find Melba Moore - Magic Touch, at least uncomfortable if not impossible to dance to.

Talking of dancing a funny exchange at the Dome once.

Simon Herridge asked he how I was after I had an operation.

'Fine' I said, 'just finished having a dance and it was great.'

'I will have to have that op then,' said Simon, 'cos you couldn't bloody dance before!!'

The Chandlers - Your Love Makes Me Lonely

Love the record but I always feel a bit embarrassed at that waltzy bit in the middle, never know what to do with myself

Might learn to tap dance....

What about "Fear Not" by the Legends? Can never tell if it's supposed to be an uptempo dancer or a soul ballad! Interesting one.......

Top tune but difficult to dance to.

Much as I love "Mystery" by Jimmy Armstrong, do you think I can bloody dance to it anymore without the possible use of a pacemaker??

You can't dance anyway! You're just using Mystery as an excuse.

Funnily enough, I only just discovered 'The Drifter' is a bit of a dancefloor disaster for my "Bambi on ice" legs. Speaking of which if you check out Gene's photos you'll see me trying to twist to Carol & Gerri in my gardening jumper and dad's trousers.

That geezer who doesn't like the intro to 'Get Out' has got it wrong. It's the easiest bit.

Actually Tone, is there any truth in the rumour that you won 2nd prize in a Brad Pitt lookalike competition? Apparently, the 1st prize went to a coloured fellow!! (not it wasn't me, honest!!!)

Barbara Lynn - I'm a good Woman

For those I'd better look at my feet for a bit til she starts again, oh should I leave the floor, oh no I'll look stupid, pauses

Tony Clarke - (They call me) A wrong man. Buggered if I can follow that one on the dancefloor despite its brilliance. Alas it never stops me trying and then instantly regretting it.

Think yourself lucky Andy.

I try looking at my feet all the time when I'm dancing.

All I see is the portable beer store strapped where my waist used to be.

I'd like to add Quicksand to this.

The record not the stinky sinky stuff.#

Mikey. Come to These Old Shoes tonight and I'll cure that for you.

What you do is stand at the top of the dancefloor facing the decks - The gradient then ensures that your feet are about 45 degrees higher up than your body. Hey presto, shoe-gazing!

Shh

I think I might be going.

I keep saying I will go places and get sidetracked.

So I say I am probably going tonight, so see you after the 6-a-side footy, and the swift drink with my workmates.

I used to call the dancefloor there Sue, after an old girlfriend who always had the hump ;-)

I'll, ONCE AGAIN, get my coat.
