It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
On this day sixteen years ago 27 close friends and family and one random paratrooper witnessed L and I vowing to stick together in good times and shitty times, there have been lots of the former and a few of the later in the intervening years.
After that we went down the valley to the Popinjay Hotel and had one of the best parties I've ever been to soundtracked by some of the naffest music ie typical wedding fodder and the odd Highland Scittoosh (not sure of the spelling) all expertly played by One Foot In The Grave, thee Wedding Band at that time in Lanarkshire.
L never really got into dance music but before we started going out she came up to me in the pub and asked if I had the Sunscreem single Love U More and would I tape it for her. So the next weekend in the pub I presented her with a tape containing all nine of the mixes. It wasn't until years later that she confessed that it was only the single version she wanted and not all those dancey mixes. It was an early lesson for L that with me you don't always get exactly what you asked for.
Have a good weekend
Here is one of those dancey mixes.
