Passionate Or Not About Soul

Got to post this as it always seems to get some kind of involvement in posts when not questioning peoples passion, so here goes.

does passion mean buying expensive rare records or dj`ing with or without expensive rare records or attending big weekenders/allnighters or just soul nights or just being a member on SS, add your own thoughts if you can be bothered.

some people live for it and some make a living out of it and some have it as a hobby.

different kinds of passion but still a passion

Passion for Northern Soul is rather like making love to a beautiful woman. :lol:

Sometimes you'll do anything to stay up all night working up a real sweat, other times you'll just be in the mood to sit in a bath and listen alone :yes:

Forgot about howe good the the first one is Mikey :lol: ........but dont tell the wife :lol:

Whether you collect records, go soul nites, niters, dj or just play a part on SS - once NS gets a grip of you it never leaves you......believe me I have left the scene a few times but always been drawn back by my love for the music, the people involved etc etc

I collect records, dance my head off, and post on here - does that make me obsessed?

I don't think there is a 'Halfway House' if you are into soul music you are passionate about it. You may express that passion differently to other people but haven't met anyone yet who can just take or leave it.

Am I passionate.cos I go out most friday and saturdays to Venues far and near generally spending around 150 + quid every weekend ?

would I be more passionate if I spent that cash on original Vinyl and didnt go out?

I love the people

I love the atmosphere

love the dancing ( but its hard work these days blush.gif )

passionate adj. dominated by or easily moved to strong feeling.

One of my additions would be that being passionate can often lead to 'intolerance' of other music forms. i can't see past soul and so tend to dismiss other music, maybe too quickly. Mind you nothing i've heard outside soul makes me feel too guilty about rejecting it.

I'd agree with what someone said earlier about it (soul) getting into your blood. Though ive only been into Northern Soul for a few years i cant see it ever going away.As i Teenager I was into drum and bass, garage then indie, the whole time waiting for the next thing. Once i got into northern soul and funk...........i realised i'd actualy found what i was looking for. I think people are passionate in different ways, some are mad for expensive rare records others are mad for the allnigter scene...others are just mad. Talking to older people at weekenders and allnighters proves to me that this music is like some sort of drug that has people hooked for years.....as someone whos name i cant remeber said to me "once it's in your blood son, yer fucked"

my family and friends think im mad as i never stop looking for the right tunes to add to my collection and why do i do this, i must be passionate about it or collecting, but i wont question my friends passion when they only go out once in a blue moon because they dont spend silly money and search for new tunes and just ask me to do them another cd of the latest stuff i found, each to thier own as im in it for my own reasons.

I have a passion :thumbsup: With a love affair that started nearly 30 years ago, that has taken me on a roller coaster ride of emotion throughout our relationship, its never let me down yet, and I love it just as much now as I did then. Northern Soul Obsessive? Course I am! wouldn't have it any other way :thumbsup: x

Only relatively new to the Northern Soul scene about 1yr having been introduced by a really good friend and really, really, have a passion for the music, the more I hear the more I love.

Went to a Dean Parrish do in Hove last year, my very first Northern Soul do...very happy to know a few of the tunes that were played there, but really enjoyed Dean's music.

Hoping to go to an alnighter in Stoke in Oct my very first and I am looking forward to it.

I love the music that I hear, enjoy dancing to it and have met some very nice people.

for me i enjoy hearing tunes, collecting CD's/records and i read about Northern soul and go to the nighters so there for that's my passion on it.

What would really bug me is people who only like Northern soul or one type of music and always have to critczie you if you tell them you like other music aswell because they think cause you talk about Northern soul and stuff maybe you not into anything else and as soon as you say i like Metal music or whatever they are quick to hate you as i know i am into pretty much all styles of music
