Listen to the ground: there is movement all around



A dreadful week crawls to its close, and it is time to start planning to party!
[Admittedly, this may be celebration or commiseration if they announce today whether or not I still have a job...]

We're off to Brighton this evening for a much-needed (if brief) getaway, and we'll be sure to pack our tightest jump-suits and copious quantities of Elnett hairspray - just like the Brothers Gibb (including a weirdly beardless Barry)!

Topping the UK charts this week in 1978, it's the magnificent Night Fever. Thank Disco It's Friday!



Listen to the ground:
there is movement all around.
There is something goin' down
and I can feel it.

On the waves of the air,
there is dancin' out there.
If it's somethin' we can share,
we can steal it.

And that sweet city woman,
she moves through the light,
controlling my mind and my soul.
When you reach out for me
yeah, and the feelin' is bright,

then I get night fever, night fever.
We know how to do it.
Gimme that night fever, night fever.
We know how to show it.

Here I am,
prayin' for this moment to last,
livin' on the music so fine,
borne on the wind,
makin' it mine.

Night fever, night fever.
We know how to do it.
Gimme that night fever, night fever.
We know how to show it.

In the heat of our love,
don't need no help for us to make it.
Gimme just enough to take us to the mornin'.
I got fire in my mind.
I got higher in my walkin'.
And I'm glowin' in the dark;
I give you warnin'.

And that sweet city woman,
she moves through the light,
controlling my mind and my soul.
When you reach out for me
yeah, and the feelin' is bright,

then I get night fever, night fever.
We know how to do it.
Gimme that night fever, night fever.
We know how to show it.

Here I am,
prayin' for this moment to last,
livin' on the music so fine,
borne on the wind,
makin' it mine.

Night fever, night fever.
We know how to do it.
Gimme that night fever, night fever.
We know how to show it.


Right from the opening bars, you just knew this was always destined to be a classic.

Have a great May Day Bank Holiday weekend, one and all!
