WHATS THE 1st RECORD YOU WANT TO DANCE TO AFTER LOCKDOWN

Posted (edited)

Hitting the dancefloor like corks coming out of a bottle, but what is that 1st tune you look forward to dancing to when you are confronted with a real life dancefloor again? It may be a way off yet, but time for some fun, Northern, Motown, Disco, Modern, Funk, Jazz Funk, Philly, nothing is out of bounds, if its soul its good, Time to let rip, if it moves you -  post it. Here's mine

As we've been in lockdown so long I think for many this will be appropriate. KIM TOLLIVER I DON'T KNOW WHICH FOOT TO DANCE ON. 😂😂😂 Seriously  anything uptempo from Detroit

Brothers guiding light, getting together. A bit of class. 

Maybe it could start a extra genre of tunes, the djs could play instead of the usual ones

On the “modern” side -

Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway - “Back together again”

That would work for me.

You can't beat a bit of Motown to get back into a groove

Four Tops...Baby I Need Your Loving.  And I request that it be the FIRST tune played at the 100 Club to mark the end, not of the night but of lockdown. How nice it would be to take someone in your arms and dance to this. Or even just to have everyone clap along and get as emotional as they normally do when it's the last tune and end of the niter.

Nice choice but I never have and never will regard this as a 'disco' tune. Nice soul tune, not Northern, not Disco.

Saw them perform it live at the Tin Hat in Kettering many years ago.

I bought that on import from a batch of records that came over from the States around 1975/76 never played it out until the early 90's, at Tony's Empress Blackburn if I remember correctly.

This Lou Pride Northern Soul Classic Stomper would get me up to get rid of the cobwebs, I will give the acrobatic moves a miss though on the drum break as I doubt I'd get up again! 🤣

Although Lou Pride is up there as possibly one of the all-time classics maybe something more subtle, The Brothers Are You Ready For This, or maybe Flame "N" King & The Bold Ones Ho Happy Day

Absolutely anything would do me right now!

But for me, I can't help thinking one of the old anthems ringing out across a ginormous, cavernous ceiling would make me think "I'm back!!!!! It's finally over!! We're here, we got through it. Prayers for those we lost, and thanks for keeping me and my loved ones safe.  It's going to be bigger and better than before.  We made it, we're back and I'll never take it for granted again! Life is precious and this is precious and I'm here to dance another day.  Bring it on.....once again, Frank Wilson!".   

To hear the echoing chimes of the intro do  Do I Love You ringing out would probably reduce me to tears.   😭✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼 👍🏼
