A dancefloor classic, to use and over-used phrase: and buying it this week to get it to the top of the chart sends a message to the bigots that (a) we know about humour and irony and (b) we're not swallowing your nonsense.
How wonderful it will be to see this song back in the charts (hopefully at number one!) - not only does it bring back memories, it also has another meaning now, as a very unlikely protest song against the UKIP councillor who thinks that the floods have been brought on by the introduction of marriage equality for lesbians and gay men. My street isn't flooded, and although it isn't raining men either, I don't need it to be, as I'm very happy with my husband of 26 years. Go on, buy the record, pick up your hairbrush and dance like it's 1984 and raise a glass to all of us who have a right to be just as happy - or miserable - as any other married couple!
A great party anthem dance and sing-a-long from the seventies. Be sure not to miss it this time round and also help a good cause.Trying to get this in the top twenty this week to blow a loud raspberry in the ear of the idiotic, sanctimonious dinosaur who proclaimed that the recent bad weather in the UK was due to the acceptance of gay marriage.
i downloaded the song as a stand against the narrow minded and willfully ignorant david silvester, who came out with a comment that in 2014 means that he shouldn't be in charge of anything let alone other peoples lives. but after playing it it took me way back to when i used to dance to it in tatty(by today's standards) clubs, i love it :-)
There's no way you can listen to this track without joining in so not one for the daily commute but perfect for all other listening occasions. Buy it and belt out those lines, great exercise for your diaphragm
