My 16 year old son Fynn has a mate, also 16 who for reasons I still don’t understand is obsessed with the music of my generation.
I know this because there was a “gatho” (no, not a party or a rave or a shindig, a “gatho”…don’t ask) at our place and Fynn’s mate was playing DJ.
This was some of his play list:
INXS – Never Tear Us Apart
B52’s – Love Shack
Benny Andersson- One Night in Bangkok
George Michael – Careless Whispers
Earth Wind & Fire – September
Soft Cell – Tainted Love
Duran Duran – Hungry Like the Wolf
And so on and so forth.
How someone born in 2002 would end up musically back in the 1970’s and 80’s is beyond me.
But it’s fabulous.
Thanks to the power of Spotify I can now enjoy a blast from the past. Better yet, Fynn and his mates now know all these tunes and I have finally found a DJ for my 50th.
