Burning Down The House
There’s a club if you’d like to go, you could meet somebody who really loves you. So you go, but the music’s great, and the dancing’s great, and you go home and you smile and you go to bed.
In oxford there is 1 such club, and every other wednesday there’s an 80s night. This night is called Burning Down The House, and I love it. I love it so much, that the girls and guys who run it noticed. I love it SO MUCH, that they’ve asked me to help run it next year when some of them are graduating or taking a year abroad. They all share the various duties (as will I) including DJ-ing, Promoting, and collecting cash on the door. There’s 5 people running it now, it takes 1 person to do either of the jobs on the night, leaving 3 to dance about or chat when they’re not on duty. In other words, for one wednesday night every 2 weeks, they’re living the dream. And next year, thanks solely to my undying enthusiasm for 80s music, I too get to live the dream. I’m over the moon.
I’ll leave you with the first track I requested from BDTH, a request that they obliged, and have played every time without fail since. Yay.
