If I Had a Club Night
a da da da da da-da-da-da-da-da- da!
Oh sorry, got a bit lost there. It's been a busy few days, what with being signed back on by the Doctor (so back to school for me in a couple of days), trying to tidy the flat (a Painting a very big bridge kind of job) and doing more wedding preparation with the soon to be Mrs. 17 seconds.
I guess we're a bit tired rather than too old to go clubbing, but I got to thinking about the days when I DJed (and who knows, I may do again *wishful thinking*) so i was thinking about tracks I might like to play. And - this is for you Rick, if you're reading - some of these tracks you can dance to!!
Obviously, I would play some tracks that aren't a few years old, as well as some that are decades older, but here are a few, partioularly from the days when the re-emergence of 'post-punk' type stuff was floating my boat, blogging was in its infancy and The Arcade Fire and the Shins were pretty much only known to those who read the blogs. How times change...but some of these tracks are very much likely to make it into my list of best tracks of the noughties.
The Faint -'Agenda Suicide.' mp3
The Faint -'Worked Up So Sexual.' mp3
Fitness -'Chauffeur.' mp3
Juan Maclean -'By the Time I Get To Venus.' mp3
Radio 4 -'Dance To The Underground.' mp3
The Rapture -'House Of Jealous Lovers.' mp3

As always, if you like the tracks, support the artists by buying the bands' music, whether at iTunes, Amazon or your local independent store.
Oh, and if you haven't checked it out yet, the jock'n'roll poll is up and running!
