Playlist tag

I recenty read Our Glorious Leader's and Stuart Price's ultimate party playlist and was pleased to see their number one choice was West End Girls by Pet Shop Boys. I was also chuffed to bits to see Supernature by Cerrone was at number two.

Madge and Stu have excellent taste.

Now, you know me, dear reader, and you know how I love lists, so here is my top ten ultimate party playlist:

Diana Ross - Chain reaction
Pet Shop Boys - Left to my own devices
Madonna - Hung up
Divine - You think you're a man
Cerrone - Supernature
Army Of Lovers - Let the sunshine in
Donna Summer - Bad girls (or I feel love - I can't decide)
The Flirts - Helpless
The Gibson Brothers - Que sera mi vida (if you should go)
Abba - Dancing queen

I'm turning this into a tagging exercise. You don't have to take part if you don't want to, but I am tagging:

Well, Minge, the Pop Top Ten is fine with me as long as I may go as far back as the Middle Ages... But describing myself in song titles... I don't think I can. Too many questions, too much involved...
You are just fantabulous at doing this! Unbelievable! Congrats! :-)

Minge said...

Aw, shucks. I'll be looking for your response on your blog!

Enda P said...

Eek! I shall have to ponder this. Just ten? Aaargh!

Ooh boy, this may require some hunting though vinyl, tapes and the cd's. My brain is active but it doesn't always retain everything!

Ajunt said...

I'll have to think on this one a bit as well.

Minge said...

Yes, Enda, just ten. It's harder than you think (as the actress said to the bishop...)

JAG - I'm looking forward to seeing what your top ten is. I wonder who you'll include?

Minge said...

Susan! I wonder if you'll make David and I proud and include an Army Of Lovers track?

Anjou Wu said...

What an interesting group of blogs! I'll no doubt spend hours reading them. Army of Lovers almost made my own list, but were bumped off in the final edit. Sorry!

Minge said...

What song by Army Of Lovers and did you download Souvenirs? Anyone?

Anjou Wu said...

I did download Souvenirs... classic! thanks for posting it, Minge. The Army's "Candyman Messiah" is on my top 20 party list, and "Ride the Bullet" would hit the top 40.

Ohhh, Minge. This is a fabulous tag. I'm going to have to really think about this one and do it when I have time. ;)

Tom Gaylord said...

I'm loving your top ten list! But what about It's Raining Men?

Kapitano said...

"An interesting response to my question, but while all answers are responses, not all responses are answers."

Click for my response.

Minge said...

It's Raining Men would be in the top 20. It has to be The Weather Girls, though. Those vile covers by Geri Halliwell and RuPaul are shit.

Ajunt said...

I posted a party song list on my blog. Hopefully it's showing up on there.
