Recently Michael Guy posed the question, and Christopher answered, "Do y’all have a ‘get dressed for the night out’ song"?
I'm a bit late to the party, but here are a couple of sure fire mood enhancing, whizz around the bathroom with a hairbrush in my hand, 'getting ready' songs.
First up an artist I am evangelical about. The look! The sound! The creativity! The attitude! Ladies and ladies I give you ex Moloko songstress, now solo artiste, Roisin Murphy with a song from her 2005 solo effort - "If We're In Love"...
If screeching out "When will we be lovers?" doesn't get you in the mood for a night out, well I don't know what will. Plus, hands up who doesn't want that sequined dress?! Anyone? I don't want to wear it, you know, just have it. Unless it fit.
Next up, and oh snap! coincidentally in a similar vein of lookin' for love (or a reasonable facsimilie of) I give you a song by a gay man who lives in my neighbourhood, who I have been introduced to and is as sweet and pleasant as you'd hope your musical crushes to be, and who makes an excellent Amateur Unisex Strip Show grand final judge, Mr Paul Mac. The 2001 release "Just The Thing That I Need" by Paul Mac feat. Peta Morris...
"I could love you forever tonight." Who hasn't thought that, right? "You're just the thing that I need, just to fill the space he left here." On that, don't even start girlfriend.
This is just 2 of my long list of getting ready songs. So I take a while in the bathroom. Don't be judging, it takes time to look like this.
So, to kick this along, care to post your song choices in the comments?
