Listening To… (12/31)

…what New Year’s celebrants in the UK were jamming to 25 years ago. Get out yer pacifiers, glow sticks, and platform shoes, for it’s a mid-90s NYE party! This mix is a BIG one; it’s over 5 hours! (And you also get to “explore” the roads of So-Cal. I often traveled some of the roads shown in the vid when I use to frequent So-Cal. Memories!)

Party safely, everyone!

Hump Day Par-tay

For those who don’t know, I LIVE for super-long 90s dance megamixes. And I gotta thank those YouTube users who have uploaded vintage BBC Essential Mixes, for without them, I wouldn’t have discovered this powerhouse mix, played 25 years ago on this date by DJ Carl Cox. (The date listed in the video is notated the UK way.) I actually first heard of this mix eight years ago, and every time I play it, I turn into a one-woman rave–minus the glow sticks, pacifiers, and ecstasy pills because I have none of those things. 

Besides, when cheaters lose on the championship level, it’s always a good day to party!

 

Listening To… (12/31)

Even though I had to work today (and it was a looooong-ass work day), I chose to be in the party spirit because it’s New Year’s Eve! And nothing gets me jumping in my car seat more than 90s dance music! Big-ups to those who found these oldie but goodie megamixes that originally aired for BBC Radio and uploaded them to the YouTubes. The added live audience sounds is also the tits. Welcome to my solo New Year’s party! (Yes, the same kind of party that I threw in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015…)

Listening To…(10/13)

Those who were a freestyle/dance music head living in the Bay Area during the mid/late 90s would remember the non-stop dance mixes WILD 94.9 (formerly 107.7 FM) used to spin. Those mixes were the tits!

A little story time: one of their DJs used to play sets at my junior high school for our dances. Just remembering that gives me flashbacks of CK One wafting in the air and seeing the popular girls white-girl dance to “Hoochie Mama” on the auditorium stage with WILD 94.9 bumper stickers adhered to the backside of their bell-bottom l.e.i jeans. (What skinny pants? And no cell phones here, honey. This was the mid/late 90s; Giga Pets, some quarters for the pay phone, and Bonne Bell Lip Smackers were in our pockets then!) I did the sticker on the butt thing one time in an attempt to be cool and ended up getting odd looks from my posse aka the geeks of my grade. Hey, I didn’t want to be a geek forever!

Listening To… (Leap Day 2020!!)

Yes, I’m aware of the absurdity that I’m listening to such a song and making it the Leap Day song. But this is not just for the 90s dance heads and the size queens. It’s also for the lovelorn girls/gays who never got their chance with the guy they wanted because that guy was taken by another. Unless if the guy has nudes out there, you lovelorn girls/gays mustn’t feel sad. Don’t bother with Googling “how to get over a crush”; just imagine he’s one of these and move on to another hottie. (YMMV, but it worked for me!)
