So the Team Honk danceathon is happening soon and it’s made me think about dancing!
When I was 18 I spent most Saturday nights at the Irish club in Nottingham dancing to the Waterboys or to James (sitting down on sticky lager wet floor). I loved it there. The song that always made everyone jump up to dance though was Candi Staton and the Source You’ve got the love. It just filled me up with feel good energy. It was a sense of being carefree and surrounded by friends and full of life. It still does make me feel like that and it has had a bit of a revival in current years so I have had had the pleasure of hearing it many times since.
