Elsenham Street Diamond Jubilee Street Party Playlist , June 3 2012

June 4, 2012

Surely the only possible song to start a street party disco is Lazy Sunday and its plaintive opening line “Wouldn’t  it be nice to get on with me neighbours?”

Thankfully we all did, and there was lots of bopping, which was lovely to see. There is always a tipping point at events like this, where one song turns tapping toes into outright dancing. For this playlist it was Back In The USSR. Once this point is reached all a DJ has to do is keep the women dancing , as the men will follow. So that’s what I did.
