Happy New Year y'all!
The Sugar Hill Gang - 'Rapper's Delight' (1979)
I thought long and hard about what song I would want to hear at midnight if I was at a party tonight. What song has stood the test of time, is cool, funky and you can dance your heart out for a full 14 minutes? It's got to be this classic! Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn....say what!
|Good clean fun|
New Year's Eve not only means a whole year's worth of reflection or a long list of things you want to put right, but also reminds you of New Years' gone by. I'm probably not the only one but I remember The Millennium as one of my favourite New Year's Eves. One of my friends was wearing a wall clock around his neck Flava Flav style which I thought was hilarious. The last songs I heard of 1999 were Millennium by Killing Joke and of course the countdown was to Prince's 1999. We all shouted the last ten seconds and my parent's house erupted into an impromptu conga line out the door and into the street. No planes fell out of the sky, the DVD player and computer didn't self combust and the drinks continued to flow until well after sunrise. Bizarrely the last thing I remember before I passed out at 9am was watching my mum's Ricky Martin music video which she had got for Christmas. Weird...I knew I shouldn't have drank all those glasses of Sloe Gin!
|Happy New Year boyeeeee!|
Don't be shy, tell me what song would you like to hear this New Year's Eve at midnight? And what is your favourite New Year's Eve memory (if you have any!)?
Two thousand zero zero party over, oops out of time...click here to party like it's 1999!
