Cyndi Lauper* – Girls Just Want To Have Fun | (GPF)

A friend asked me to put together a mix of songs for his wedding party in a couple of months. This is something of a dream task for me because it means I get to listen to lots of cheesy songs and not feel “guilty” about it.

As part of this research I came across this track from American singer Cyndi Lauper and was reminded about what a great pop song it is.

Bone Thugs N Harmony* – Crossroads | (GPF)

I have been on a real 90’s kick since realising I am part of the Wonderwall Generation and posting the Oasis classic Champagne Supernova a couple of weeks ago.

This is a cheesy hip hop classic of the era. I love the band name, just the wrong side of preposterous which is just the right side of perfect for a Hip Hop group. Also, the intro here is just ridiculous but great at the same time. All my guilty pleasures seem to have a healthy does of excess about them!

Dee Lite* – Groove is in the heart

At a really old friend’s wedding today so I wanted to post something that I might hear later on. This is classic wedding reception fodder…

Groove is in the heart…

N-Trance* – Set you free

I have been wanting to post this since I revisited JX, another classic of the genre (mid-90’s cheesy, up tempo dance). If these two don’t make you want to jump around the room, I’m not I will be able to help you. They have the added lustre for me of being reminders of some happy and carefree schooldays.

I had a successful (and surprisingly sun kissed) morning in Dublin. As of Wednesday I will be a resident of Ranelagh, Dublin. Hope you have a great weekend.
