I was lookin’ back to see
If you were lookin’ back at me
To see me lookin’ back at you
When I was at University (the first time!) I only had 8 hours of lectures a week. I was studying English and Drama. The rest of the time I was living my life and being educated in an altogether different way.
I went to University in Liverpool and I spent my weekends clubbing. It was 1996 and the club scene was massive. I had the time of my life!
After a big night out a few of us would gather in our halls to unwind together and we would play more relaxed music, music I would often leave playing to lull me into sleep.
There are two albums that dominated my stereo were Massive Attack Blue Lines and Leftfield Leftism. Two albums that I adore to this day.
I have been aware of Mumra’s Playlist for a few weeks now but have not joined in. This week’s topic jumped out at me though partly because I am missing my little sister so much at the moment and partly because I have not danced in so long apart from at my sister’s wedding where we did indeed dance to this band!
My breaking shapes tune is actually any tune at all by The Basement Jaxx. I love them and they never fail to get me on my feet and on to the dance floor.
I cannot choose a favourite tune but I do love Red Alert, Rendez-Vu, Romeo and Do Your Thing.
Such great, light hearted dance tunes that really do make you shake your thing!
One of the best nights of my life was going to see Robbie Williams with my little sister and supporting him were The Basement Jaxx and they were just outstanding. We danced and bounced our way through their tunes and enjoyed them almost more than the man himself. An amazing experience which cemented my love of this fabulous dance act.
