Well, it's all a bit of a blur now, but there was a few years towards the end of the 70s when there was a spurt of creativity which seemed to start off with Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours", Thin Lizzy's "Live and Dangerous and Steve Hillage's "Motivation Radio" but quickly moved on to Ian Dury, Spizz Energy, Wire, The Damned, Devo, Blondie et al. Songs like "Hit me with your Rythm Stick" would always fill the dancefloor, but the most iconic song of the era for me was Patti Smith's rendition of "Because the Night". I can almost feel my shoes sticking to the carpet in the Penthouse (the best nightclub in the world, in Scarborough.. long gone), so this is pure nostalgia, but it still gives me a massive dopamine rush. Musically probably the best time to be alive outside of the sixties, although I decided to buy the remaster as it's been tidied up sonically without losing any of the impetus. Patti Smith managed to turn Bruce Springsteen's song into something iconoclastic, a timeless classic, full marks or fail the rest of the class!

The ultimate version of this song. Takes me back to the 70's better than the Tardis would. A must have.
