It's Friday . . Let's Dance

Although I manage to remain in gainful employment I don't particularly feel like celebrating as over the coming months I will see quite a few people I have worked with for a good few years go on to pastures new. There is one certainty and that is that things will never be quite the same and I fear that it will be a lot less pleasurable work environment for those of us who will still be around.

But it is Friday and some things remain constant, so here is another piece of dance music that you will either love or hate.

Jason Nevin's remix of Run - DMC's 1983 single, It's Like That did elicit strong emotions from people. Quite a few people I knew at the time who were right into their hip-hop would have no truck with it and it would be reasonable to say that if they ever got their hands on Mr Nevins he would have felt the full force of their wrath and have been lucky to leave in one piece. But lots of people did love the track and at the tail end of 1997 and more so during 1998, you would have had to have been deaf or living on Mars not to have been acquainted with the track. It went on to be number 1 in more than 30 countries making it the most popular track ever posted here by a country mile.

For my part, I quite liked it and listening to it very loud before ripping it to post today I still found myself nodding along to it.

Have a good weekend people.

Good news on the work front. Despite it's popularity I love this track.
