Its about time there was a female insight to this blog! I'm Shell Hunter, a 20something lady with a passion for musical pleasure. If it makes me want to sing or cut a shape, its worth including on my Saturday Night Jukebox!
Faithless - 'Insomnia' (1995)
Picture this, it's Saturday night in a dingy backstreet pub in Hounslow, my friends and I were quite clearly underage but we were accepted as 'locals' there. The jukebox was being hammered by indie and rock anthems such as Led Zepplin's Stairway and Pulp's 'Common People'. Myself and my fellow girlies with pints of snakebite in hand anticipate my 2 quids worth of choices to move it up a notch. Then it comes, the slow heartbeat intro! I scream over to Steve the landlord, 'Put it up! I want my ears to bleed!' This is only allowed to be heard super loud. The beat continues to build up until we all stand up and gather into the gangway in front of the toilets to dance rave style. Big fish, little fish, cardboard box...come on you know them! I've never been to Ibiza but during this song, I crave being in the middle of a huge dance hall surrounded by lots of sweaty dancing people. To feel the climax of the song with the smoke and lasers flashing all around me!
