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:
Oh, and since this was a top ten, I want to share this with you. If it were a top twenty, number eleven would have been Souvenirs by Voyage. Click here to download it.
