The over-arching theme of my desert island disco playlist is songs that make you want to get up and dance… You know the feeling, you’re sitting in a dark corner of a dance hall and the opening bars play… You feel the hairs on the back of your neck rise and your feet just take you out to the dance floor, the imperative to dance is all consuming. This playlist runs the gamut of eras from 1970 right up to 2016, Which pretty much covers my dancing years… Though to be fair my dancing, these days, consists of Dad dancing or swinging my pants in a Trev and Simon stylee.

There are a few tracks which may be considered cheesy, like Boney M, but I’ve included them because the 12″ inch version really was the first song I remember that had a messy breakdown and along with Get on Up by James Brown, would turn the disco floor into a writhing mass of humanity…

It is this sense of songs breaking into just a swirl of trance-like mesmeric beats which has always excited me and I hope that you will enjoy my choices.

POST SCRIPT

Had an absolute blast on the show  thanks to all the listeners who were so complimentary, I particularly liked the one who said I should be available on the NHS… I am and at very little cost.

i’ve also had a proposal of marriage which I had to decline but thank you all… and a special thank you to Lauren and Ash and all the team for being so blooming nice…

You made an old man very happy… another bucket list completed.

Dale.
