Guru Josh Project - 'Infinity' (2008)
Every now and then a song hits me despite it not being my usual 'thing'. I would never claim to be a fan of Europop but hey its the Euro's, why not?! This is a bit of a guilty pleasure but never the less, its got a great dance beat to it and the saxophone intro reminds me of the bit from Flash Dance! 80's tastic!
I used to hear this song driving from flight to flight at the airport on the radio which was always tuned to KissFM whenever I got into the car (not my choice of course). I finally gave in, admitted to liking it and put it on the next holiday playlist. We'd booked a weeks break to Protaras in Cyprus renting an apartment. The area happened to be quite underdeveloped but there was about 5 bars, a shop, a kebab shop, a Chinese, 2 Cypriot restaurants and it was next to a very picturesque beach called Pirate's Cove (what more do you need?). We went out to one of the bars on our first night and instead of the usual holiday revellers we expected to encounter, we'd walked into a local's bar where everyone knew everyone...except us. It was a bit awkward at first like the bit from 'An American Werewolf In London' where the two lads walk into the Slaughtered Lamb Pub, but with a few drinks inside us and music videos blaring over the speakers, we were soon right at home. I remember this song came on and some of the drunken locals were shouting the words in each other's faces and dancing happily but a little too much in my personal space. It was ok though, I was on holiday! So I just smiled and continued sipping my wine. We listened to the playlist numerous times but I don't know why this song in particular will always remind me this trip to Cyprus. Maybe because when we played it the car when driving around the deserted streets of Ayia Napa (as it was dead season in early March), I was imagining how it should be heard, in a full club and extremely loud!
