God don't worry about being in a rut- I had tons of Blur and Smiths in my lists.

Bloody hell, Weekender by Flowered Up. What a blast from the past!!! Excellent.

It just seems that while there is newer music I like,it doesn't really mean anything much to me compared to stuff from a while back.

My OH played Weekender when he DJed at our friends wedding - he forgot that it ends with swearing so had to turn it off quickly before the relatives noticed.

Lo, me too. I love The Kooks, for example, but they'll never be as great to me as The Stones or The Beta Band.

Can your OH dj at my wedding? I think a good indie dj is probably hard to find. Not that I'm getting married right now :o)

SandDancer said...

Not if you call him an indie DJ. He wasn't pleased when I called the night he played at an indie night. No idea what to call it instead though without sounding pretentious - I think he may have mumbled something about 'avoiding labels'. He played a lovely set of soul & motown before his indie/dance classics set at this wedding.

great choices...thanks for making me run to cd collection and re-live some old songs from this century? On reflection that's no bad thing...
