SATURDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX! - N.E.R.D - 'She Wants To Move'




N*E*R*D - 'She Wants To Move' (2004)

I love those jungle drums, and that base, and that Spanish guitar, and the claps, and the...everything! It's a great track and Pharrell is a babe (here's another Pharrell post)! I never even realised the sexy senorita was Alesha Dixon, the girl can bust some moves. I was just going through some fave dance tracks and this immediately reminded me of my friendly neighbourhood 'Litten Tree' Pub in Slough after moving in with my boyfriend when I was 19.

I don't want 2 drinks, I want 7!

Every Friday, not only was this pub open late, but offered 2-4-1 drinks all night long! Could it be the perfect evening after a cheeky Nando's dinner which was across the road? It usually started that way, but as you can imagine it was an absolute chav fest and went down hill after about 10pm! Trying to get served at the bar was like trying to catch a bargain with the Hustler at the local market. Flash your dosh and you will eventually get served over a sea of hands!

Hearing this song, brings me back to a moment of clarity from cloud of dry white wine. Me and my boyfriend, not chavvy in the least but reaping the benefits of cheap booze on a Friday night were people watching to highest degree. The screaming arguments, lots of fights breaking out, the bouncers with their bomber jackets and earpieces using unnecessary muscle and the girls attempting to chat up the fat DJ/Bouncer/Barman. Believe it or not, very fond memories! No wonder the pub went out of business though.

Ah 2-4-1 drinks at the Litten Tree Slough would eventually result in being met outside by the Thames Valley riot police, K9 division and a trip to A&E at Wexham Park hospital. Brilliant song by NERD, probably just after their peak?!
