description:
I would go to these parties in my youth, and being one of the 'heads', as pretend Hippies were known at the time, I would spend my time sitting around listening to Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. I grew out of that though, roughly around the time I got a sex life that didn't just include me. From that time, whenever I was at a party or club and, say, James Brown started to play, instinct would take over. We couldn't dance well, we didn't look that good, but we loved dancing and we loved being seen. This is music that evokes that era and makes me want to put on my dancing shoes...

The song has become a bit of a tired cliche now, but back in the day this would always get people onto the dance floor, what with the wonderful bass line and the chance for geeks to ask girls if they wanted to sleep with them in French without fear of a happy slap!

One fun phenomenon of 70s London nightlife was the riverboat disco. A ferry would go up and down the Thames past all those historic landmarks, but no one was looking at them, intent on dancing to stuff like this, or making out below decks.

And this was often in the slow section as well. By this time, it was all couples on the dance floor. The sad loners had retreated to the bar if there was one, the rest room if there wasn't. Actually, some of the couples used to take the restroom route as well.

On my 30th birthday I went to a club in a town called Norwich. I hadn't been clubbing for a while, everyone seemed younger than me, the music was not that known to me, and then the DJ played this. I was up and moving like a drunk person on his birthday would move. Within seconds I was arse over tit on the floor, but the Godfather of soul was on the turntable, and for a few minutes, all was right with the world.
