This mix is sorta more of the same as the last one, like the one I played at Martin Keehn last week. There was too much, it needed a supplement. Basically the same songs I have been dancing to for thirty years. LOL. Grandpa still likes to get down…just a little slower at times. Mostly disco tracks, but somehow Adele got right in there too…keep it loose and move around.
Traffic jams, fire trucks and the sounds of what was.
Hope you like ITALO. This is a playlist that is in progress – mostly mid ’80s. Steamy synthesized swish…clean towels and free water. The soundtrack that was the same no matter what city, what country or what continent you happened to be inhabiting that weekend. This is the international sound of gay disco. It plays through the mist that surrounds you now and from the cassette you will take back with you tomorrow. Alone in your premium priced privacy your key bracelet has locked the door and you are secure. Recline and listen hard. Resting and reflecting with eyes toward a ceiling, seeing what you are feeling, you are anywhere at once. You are feeling a new kind of big belonging. Then…
“Attention – Lockers fourteen, nineteen and thirty seven, you must renew. Fourteen, nineteen and thirty seven – you must renew now at the entrance desk.”
“Attention, s’il vous plaît – Les casiers 14, 19 et 37 doivent être renouvelés Les casiers quatorze, dix-neuf et trente-sept doivent être remplacés au guichet.”
‘Ouch. That was waytoo loud.’ Time to take another lap and maybe bum a cigarette. “Wow, this music literally never ends.”
Do you know Mister Leatherman Disco? He’s from Mixcloud…A must know!! Mixcloud, hun. What I do is, I eat sorbet when I listen to this and that really works for me. Raspberry, today. mmmm. yeah. Thanks, Leatherman.
Enjoy this barely polished, low quality, Hi-definition disco-pop gem from the German “So gay but not gay” duo, Modern Talking. Learn the lyrics and remember them through the coming year.
You Can Win If You Want, If You Want It You Will Win – mantra
You meaning “I” that is, you are you to me but I am me to myself so when I repeat this disco mantra I say “you” but I mean ” I.” right? wait…who am I again?
Valued readers I wish you all a winning new year filled with one finger piano solos, a bold abuse of bronzer and catchy falsetto backups over a throbbing bass that just makes you feel like, “giddy-up ,giddy’up, giddy-up!”
You can win if you want If you want it, you will win On your way you will see that life is more than fantasy Take my hand, follow me Oh, you’ve got a brand new friend for your life
