Oldies

Recommended Posts

Something that changes all the time is my favourite oldie, so as a piece of fun and NOT an invitation for an argument, I give you mine.

Frankie and Johnny......I`ll hold you.

What`s your currrent favourite?

Please no abuse or point scoring just an honest answer.

Can't fault Frankie & Johnny for an evergreen oldie. For somebody who friends (and others) have accused have disliking oldies, I could list loads of them. Always loved the Spellbinders, "Help Me", Maurice Williams "Being Without You" and The Inticers "Since You Left". Fondest one though is Little Anthony "Better Use Your Head".

Agree on Little Anthony, takes me back 30 years, still a brilliant dancer.

i love oldies. They are the tracks that i remember most from growing up and my dad having them on all the time. With being new to the scene oldies are like newies for me so im not fed up of hearing them like most of you will be. That means that its pretty hard for me to dislike any night i go to( unless its rnb!!!)!

Loved the hemsby weekender cos i got to hear a lot of oldies that normally dont get played very often.

Got to agree with F & J, what a great track.

I've been picking up some cheap oldies for the collection, as I can't afford anything else at the mo!

Precisions - Why Girl/If This Is Love../Misery (which seems to be on the uppers, and was dead chuffed Cookie played it at NCSC (And I like it because I think it's great - not because I can't afford Stemmons Express :thumbsup: )

Superlatives - Lonely In A Crowd. Fantastic tempo to this. Just love it.

All cheap as chips, bar Misery, which you can pick up for £30-£50 on ebay easy enough. Can't go wrong wi dem dare oldies.

Jamie :thumbsup:

Right now, mine is...

I CAN'T ESCAPE FROM YOU-RITCHIE ADAMS

Killer track. I've been playing this one in the car at least a few times every day lately. Such a tight production, I think. Gets me in the mood to dance every time. I can only imagine hearing this fill the room at Wigan. Must have been great for all of you...

Got a nice northern soul DVD "The Magic Touch" from Andy Holroyd of Notts that has Carl (Mr. "Soul Time" himself) doing some nice dance moves to that song. I met Carl at the LA Weekender and my dancing skills immediately improved having him around, along with his encouragement.

Great guy that I'm sure many of you know, along with Andy Holroyd.

It does by me at Clowne!

Reminds me of a conversation I had with someone about Volcanoes - Laws of Love. They said it never got played. I was fed up of hearing it. That's probably because it's our mate's favourite and he asks for it nearly every time he goes out.

It has to be - Fine young Girl - Ernie Andrews

Remember Steve McWilliam from Blackpool having acopy that was burnt and made an awful noise as it went round .

"Eyes so pretty and a dog gone pity that theres only one of her and she happens to be mine- Let me tell you shes Fine, Fine - Fine"

Got my copy from Nancy who was in Sacramento at the time- She sent it to me as a present as I had split with the wife after 10 years of marriage but the record actually reminds me of Beverly Griffiths who was my girlfriend back in the 70s. :yes:
