It's actually QUITE GOOD!
Oh shit, this actually is good. I don't know why I expected any less given the pedigree involved, but still a nice surprise.
that Billy Ocean song which inexplicably won't go away from download charts this year is one of the more famous ones. So famous I can't remember what it's called. But apparently it is.
He was certainly a good sport. I still remember him and Marcella doing X-Factor, pretending to be absolutely shit with PE class gymnastics no less and fooling Dermot with it.
I've just Googled him to find out which song it is, and one of the first frequently asked questions about him is 'Does Billy Ocean have three lungs?'. It turns out he does, which is nice.
Still no closer to finding out the name of the song.
And Googling THIS turned up only one mention on Popjustice (and a deleted video). It did, however, bring up the roster for Dance Crazy Management International, which reads like a who's who of WHO? (but I'd still very happily attend should they decide to throw a festival).

@Raining On Me
Lines close tomorrow!
I wonder if it was me who mentioned it
Anyway, I'm surprised to see we all forgot this magnificent gem from '91 (remembered via gym rat Marcy and her gym rat bro's tatty cover from 2008):
Kym Sims agog, etc.
The poster’s name started with ‘un’
I'm nothing if not consistent.
I've never heard what they have on the b-side before. I'm entranced!
Edit: one more, they just keep on giving.
That b-side sounds a bit like the music from Streets of Rage. Obviously I wholeheartedly approve.
I’ll send them in today (maybe)
Anyway I think Katefest would have Pet Shop Boys headlining and then this lot (running order TBC)
ALEX PARTY (Shanie)
SOPHIE ELLIS BEXTOR
LIVIN’ JOY (Janice Robinson)
ACE OF BASS
Urban COOKIE Collective
Incoming today darling.
And I would attend this. Maybe bringing a bag of pills would be a tad ambitious, but I’d certainly come equipped with Bacardi Breezers.
I love that the ‘contemporary artists’ are Bette Midler, Dionne Warwick and Mary Wilson. “And introducing the hottest new act of the day, Miss Gracie Fields.”
I think I’d have Kelly Llorenna on to do two songs at 11am followed by Sam Fox singing Santa Maria at 11.15 to fill the initial slot when gates have opened but only a handful of people drifted in as yet.
Kelly would do about 15 seconds of actual singing in that set. These days her performances consist of
“So hold me... MAKE SOME NOISE MANCHESTOH... let’s stay together... LET’S GO FUCKIN MENTAL... so hold me... OGGY OGGY OGGY.”
If I was being uncharitable I’d say years of drug abuse have kicked fuck out of her voice. If I was being uncharitable.
Tina Cousins has been increasingly “erratic” on stage for the last few years too.
How have I lived this long without hearing LOVE HOUSE
I think they should team up and start the Featured Artists Festival. Them, Karen Parry, Coco Star, RikRok Ducent, Maria Naylor, Sia...
I’d definitely go.
For real? I need to know more.
I've been blasting Hymn of late. I always thought that was going to be a hit.
For real. Completely wasted *it seems*. I’ll post evidence later.
Lots of people don’t know Sam did a bit of acid. And charted with it.
She's learned how to catch all those drinks being thrown at her then. With her mouth.
Pray is a mainstay of every dance playlist I make. I considered nominating it for this in fairness, and I was agog that nobody thought to suggest Killing Time.
Were we aware this happened?
Tina comes on about 33 mins in to this vid or about 3 mins before the end. This is not an isolated incident. The guys who come onto stage when they think she’s going to fall. If it was a one off it could be funny but I think she has a problem.
Oh Tina hun.
Aww at the nice dancing fairy being kind to her though, but that was grim.
A no-frills 'shit I should have nominated' today. I completely missed this off my shortlist and I'm furious.
How DID we miss this 4am gem?
Suspect our list might be better.
4 of the top 5 not even being dance songs suggests they didn't really understand the brief.
American dance lists are invariably misinformed. Shocking really for the nation that produced disco.
The fucking BEATLES?
