THURSDAY I'M IN LOVE!! A CHANCE FOR ME TO SHARE SOME OF MY AUBERGINE PARMIGIANA!!
Smashing Pumpkins - '1979' (1996)
This track pretty much trumped everything else that was released that summer. I was never really a big fan of the Smashing Pumpkins but for me this ticked all my boxes from it's build up to when the beat kicks in, the bassline and that voice sample. It was also a great video, the skull in the car moving in time to the beat, the care free nature of the song summing up perfectly how I felt that summer.

It reminds me of my friends I made when I worked on Eurostar. It was a small group of probably about 10 and we worked with each other pretty much for about a year together so we were close knit. Piling late into a pub near Waterloo after work, we'd hog the pool table and jukebox where this song was played on repeat. After last orders we'd probably go to a friends house, hopefully to my Italian buddy who'd whip up some delicious Sicilian dish out of nowhere, molto bene!! Happy memories, courtesy of the Smashing Pumpkins!
