Body to body…..

Shades Of Love – Keep In Touch (Body To Body) (Joey’s Hammond It Up Dub)

I just can’t find the right words to describe this wonderful remix that has little resemblance with the original. Yet it’s so great thanks to the wonderful Hammond organ, a instrument that I never can get enough of when it’s played this funky.

Cool tempo…..

Amii Stewart – Friends

I was kind of surprised when I found this on YouTube. I definitely recognized the song from back in the days, but to be honest i had no idea that it was the famous disco-diva Amii Stewart who was singing. So it was kind of a nice surprise to find out that she hadn’t lost her skills even though this tune is far from as energetic as Knock On Wood, Jealousy or Light My Fire was.

I just love the 90’s…..

Judy Cheeks – So In Love (The Real Deal) (Frankie Foncett Vocal Mix)

The 90’s holds a special place in my heart. It was a period when I discovered the wonderful world of house music. I’m specially fond of Piano-house just like this one. Another fun thing is that it’s so extremely easy and fun to mix these tunes. So I have a bunch of quite long mixes filled with wonderful music from the 90’s. They are perfect when you’re having a house party and don’t feel like DJ’ing.

Ground breaking…..

MFSB – Mysteries Of The World

This tune caught my attention because of the bass line. I can’t remember that I’ve heard this original song before but I’m definitely sure that I’ve heard the bass line before. So I guess it has been both sampled and recycled throughout the years. I’m just a bit annoyed that I can’t figure out what other songs there are where I’ve heard this bass line. Oh, I almost forgot, the intro is just over one minute and not that fun so in case you need to save some time i suggest you fast forward to around 1:10 and then you’ll hear the music start for real.

Lite info om förändringar som skett…..

Hej allihopa!

Bloggen flyttades vid årsskiftet 2009-2010 till en ny adress och första månaden under 2010 har jag provat på att blogga på engelska. Så för den ramlar in här och läser bloggen från slutet så är januari månads inlägg således på engelska. Från och med februari 2010 så skriver jag på svenska igen och kommer så att fortsätta med det. Alla inlägg fram till och med detta är dessutom importerade från gamla bloggadressen men denna information är kanske av mindre vikt för mina läsare. Men det kan ju vara bra att veta att samtliga inlägg från 2008 och framåt nu finns samlade i en och samma blogg trots flytt och andra förändringar. Adressen till bloggen är från och med januari 2010 som följer:

https://maydayclub.wordpress.com

….eller för den som är lat funkar det oxå med:

Jag hoppas ni kommer att fortsätta att besöka Mayday Club och jag ser fram emot att även i framtiden leta reda på alla möjliga och omöjliga låtar ur nostalgiträsket och visa upp dem på bloggen.

Welcome to the party that never ends…..

Poussez – Never Gonna Say Goodbye

This is the first post in what I hope will be a long trail of posts for a long time ahead. My track record is quite good since this blog actually started back in 2007 but it has since moved around for various reasons. The latest move was done yesterday since I’ve decided to write my posts in English after having been writing in Swedish all these years.

So I figured that it was easier to move the blog and start from scratch than to transform my old blog to English. The latter would have complicated things with categories, tags, archiving and so on. Anyway since this blog is about music I guess we better get down to business.

This song is one of my true disco favorites of all times. It has all the ingredients that you build a good disco tune with. What attracts me especially in this song is the mesmerizing song that gives it its special character. There are of course lots of examples of other songs that has a similar approach, but I must still say that this one stands out from the bunch.

It sees like this first post is coming to an end and I hope any new English speaking readers have been able to read it without being to confused. I guess that I’m using what you could call “Scandinavian English” which is a mix of school English, UK English and American English blended with the way we express ourselves in our native language. One thing for instance that i always forget is to write i in uppercase when i refer to myself, like “I” just did. And I’m not sure that i will ever learn it since in Swedish you normally only use capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and in names.

Anyway, the important thing is that you as a reader can understand what I’m trying to say, and should you be confused about what i write, don’t hesitate to ask me what the heck I’m trying to say.

P.S Tjillevippen is actually a made-up word, from one of Astrid Lindgrens books about Nils Karlsson Pyssling, that i have come to use as a catch phrase at the end of anything i write.
