The last one would have my toes tapping most especially! The night is called Scared to Dance I had assumed it was ironic but apparently not. I don't think I understand English club nights. Would it not be best to have everyone issued a pair of headphones and have accessible jacks at their tables and they could listen and admire the DJ's awesome taste in music? Who knows. I never leave my house.

Update: And now, having received enlightening emails, I can share in the knowledge that this is more the soundtrack to a night out with like minded souls. Ah. Still don't understand why you would play the same band twice. Requests? And why would you play Felt at all? Self-flagellates in attendance?

If it was disco night at the mental asylum then people might dance.

"I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris"
"Disorder"
"She's Lost Control"

The lack of extreme death-metal is disappointing, but you can't have everything I suppose. Good to see Helen Love's "Shifty Disco Girl" making a non-appearance.
