Disco

I've been thinking about making another list.

If I was to ask a DJ to spin some tracks at one of my candlelit suppers, a soirée or a fabulous disco, I'd have to ask for the following:

Spagna - Call me
Ride Committee - Love to do it
Dario G - Dream to me (radio edit)
Deee-Lite - Groove is in the heart
Army Of Lovers - Let the sunshine in (extended version)
Prefab Sprout - If you don't love me
Tarkan - Simarik
Sister Slegde - Lost in music (sure is pure remix edit)
Lieutenant Pigeon - Mouldy old dough
Kiki Kokover - Love to love you baby
Rufus - Eighties coming back
Cerrone - Supernature
Pet Shop Boys - Left to my own devices
Diana Ross - Chain reaction
Sugababes - Push the button
Liza Minnelli - Losing my mind
Spagna - I always dream about you

Alison Moyet - Whispering your name
Bronski Beat featuig Eartha Kitt - Cha-cha heels

Oh Romeo - Try it (I'm in love with a married man)
Army Of Lovers featuring Big Money - Lit De Parade (video edit)
Divine - You think you're a man

Cyndi Lauper - That's what I think
Riva featuring Dannii Minogue - Who do you love now?
Brother Beyond - The harder I try
Celine Dion - I'm alive (the wake up mix)
Gwen Stefani - What you waiting for?
Cher - Believe
Gloria Gaynor - I am what I am
Ofra Haza - Im nin alu 2000
2raumwohnung - Liebe ohne ende

Dusty Springfield - In private

Gudrun Gut featuring Inga Humpe - Butterfly

O-zone - Dragostea din tei
Inga Humpe - Something stupid (seven inch)
Sophie Lawrence - Love's unkind (7")
Miquel Brown - Close to perfection
The Human League - Tell me when
Soft Cell - What!
Matia Bazar - Ti sento
Sophie B Hawkins - Right beside you
Nu Shooz - I can't wait
Me&My - Baby boy
Sonia - Only fools (never fall in love)
Jane Birkin - Élisa

Looks like it'll be an all-nighter.

The trouble is, with choosing music for a disco, some people will love some of the tracks and hate others. Some people will hate it all. Hardly anyone, bar the person choosing the tracks, will love everything.

I know it's a vile old cliché, but you can't please all of the people all of the time.
