It's Friday . . Let's Dance

Well the proletariat have had their day off in Lanark and with nothing more than empty wallets, sore heads and trashed clothes to show for it in a lot of cases. Still plenty of over time for the council workers clearing up the mess and the Police who spent the day turning a blind eye to under age girls and boys walking about blatantly drinking Buckfast and cheap cider.

But it's Friday and these things are of no concern to you.

This week still finds me with the urge to be dancing in a field all night somewhere and what better a soundtrack to the rising of the sun than this Balearic classic from 1989 which got to number 27 in the UK charts. The sample which was also used to great effect by Orbital on the glorious Belfast a year or so later and also to advertise muesli is O Euchari by Hildegard Von Bingen performed by Emily Van Evera. The version posted is Danny Rampling's Love Is . . .  mix from the remix twelve.

Have a good weekend people.

The Beloved - The Sun Rising ( Love Is . . . remix)

Blissed out beats, innit.

Love this song. Slightly cursing myself now though for not blogging the Beloved's 'Hello' as a tribute to the late Roy Skelton - Zippy, Bungle, Jeffrey Archer! (Roy voiced all three.)

I need to get more of Hildegard von Bingen's stuff.

It's a good 'un and no mistake.

To be honest Davy the only other one I rate is Ordo Virtutum but it's a bastard to get a hold of. Haven't seen one on ebay for an eternity!

LOL, as friends of Simon's might say.
