Musical Box

I am working on a playlist. My halloween playlist. It's fucking amazing. Each year it just gets better and better.

I am one of those annoying people who won't let anybody else touch the music system at parties. But then again, that's fair, as most of the time what other people want to put on is a load of old wank that would clear a dance floor quicker than announcing the buffet's open.

While I may ring the changes with new additions to the playlist from party to party, there are some songs on which you can rely. It is a given that come the end of the night, full of wine and emotion, there will come a soulful rendition of Town Without Pity and/or No More "I Love You"s. Much like the National Anthem playing at the end of transmission on TV, this is a useful musical cue and after the requisite token resistance I allow myself to be put to bed.

I can't possibly be alone in this. What's your end-of-the party drunken singalong song?

When I used to live in Oz, it used to be 'Echo Beach'. They used to always play that last in the night clubs. Helped we lived on the coast.

I met my love by the gas works wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
I kissed my girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town

It was always the last song played at the end of our youthful parties. Or the Irish Rover, if someone demanded another.

Hey YA

but in my days as a teenaged DJ it was 'Goodnight' from the White Album. I was soooo cool.

Plus I will always have a soft spot for 'Gimme Gimme Gimme (a man after midnight)'. I'd post the link to my blog if it weren't closed for refurbishment
