30DSC: A Song Which Reminds Me of an Event

Day 7 of the 30 day song challenge. Today, a song which reminds me of something.

Red Nex – Cotton Eye Joe

School discos were something to behold. My primary school would always get the same guy to DJ. It was one of the parents and he only ever played kid-friendly dance-pop like this one, along with even songs which I can retrospectively and ironically call gems, like Superman by Black Lace.

When this song comes on, my inner child pokes his head up at the back of my consciousness and suggests that really I ought to be dancing in a circle with my friends, oughtn’t I? Put down that small bottle of sugary bright red pop, continue to avoid the girls (obviously), crook your elbow and dance around speedily in circles.
