Dancefloor Filler Summer Songs
Summer music...summer songs...summer albums. A few weeks ago, Stephen asked me if I had my 'summer song' yet, so today, I've a collection of dancefloor filler summer songs.
There's a new comp out now called Total - From Joy Division to New Order and it's the first compilation containing songs from both Joy Division and New Order on one album (5 from Joy Division, 13 from New Order). The cover was designed by Peter Saville, who designed record sleeves for Factory Records in the 80s - mostly albums covers for Joy Division and New Order. One retro dancefloor filler summer song from the new compilation, Total - From Joy Division to New Order is this one:
Last week, I heard a song for the first time and I thought, "here's my summer 2011 song"...I called around, found the album, bought it, and then found out that it won the NME (new musical express, a music publication) Award for Best Dancefloor Filler...and the song title ties in with the above dancefloor filler:
The song I'm proclaiming my 2011 dancefloor filler summer song is Foster the People "Helena Beat" from their new album Torches.
Foster the People is here on October 10th at the Commodore - perfect way to end your summer, dancing on the bouncy floor of the ONLY Canadian venue to make it onto this year's Billboard top 10 most influential clubs list.
