Starbuck's suggested wedding disco set
Starbuck [16:46] Comments: 4 []
I'm still struggling to find the precious time to report on myself and Mrs Powersurge's recent wedding extravaganze. However in the meantime, I feel that I should help recreate that wonderful day for those of you wonderful people who were unable to attend (or weren't bleedin' invited!). And this sort of filler is a nice way of keeping the day alive for myself as well.

So hot on the heels of the transcript of my wedding speech there now follows... a short list of some of the tunes that we danced the night away to! We'd provided this list to our DJ Franko and, bless, he reckoned he'd got 80% of the stuff. Thankfully he used his good taste to leave some of it well alone and to supplement the list with music as advised by his huge wealth of experience. But still, since much of it had been pre-requested by our guests (who obviously have much worse taste than myself!) he still played most of the tack therein... and somehow IT WORKED!

If you've got any of these tracks as you read this then pop them on your player, grab a glass of alcoholic beverage and some chicken pieces, and imagine that you're there with us. Aside from during The Shamen. No-one can hold their own on the dancefloor when I'm dancing to Ebeneezer Goode...

Yep, Tina Turner was fairly painful, but luckily I was at the bar at that point.

And "Male Stripper" (isn't that an antivirus product?) pretty much cleared the dance floor, apparently, aside from the requestee, Cazza.

Glad we didn't make it too "modern", though.

Can't you imagine that you're there?

Oh, and I should mention my brothers-in-law-plus-cousin-in-law and their "awe-inspiring" version of the Full Monty (thankfully more of a Half Monty, boxer shorts staying on!) to the Full Monty theme.

A number of people left shortly after...
