    We never had school discos as such being an all boys school, but they did once organise one with the local all girls school, with the usual all the boys stood one side and all the girls the other, we asked for James, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine and Neds Atomic Dustbin, we got Wham and the usual dross……..

    Same here, the only school disco I went to would have been middle school at about 10 years old..

    Olivers Army or Once in a lifetime. Every time I hear them i’m either back at the bloody awful school dance or under age drinking in Palnackie. Oh the memories….

    Came here to post Oops Upside Your Head. Beaten to it by Cougar, but the shit dance was always more annoying than the actual song…

    I hated school discos…

    At school, Adam & The Ants – Dog Eat Dog, and The Gap Band (?) – Oops upside your head – that was the one where people sat on the floor in line astern and rowed imaginary oars. Mate of mine was well into Status Quo so his favourite was Down Down

    At uni it was Lucretia My Reflection – The Sisters Of Mercy

    Some classics there all.

    Careless whisper comes up a bit. I remember slightly falling in love with Deidre for a week or so after a slow dance to that one.. 😂

    That isn’t Deidre incidentally…or the original obvs.

    If we’re allowed university then Brass in Pocket by the Pretenders. My girlfriend of the day followed the lyrics to the letter and when she got to fingers… and imagination… . 🙂

    Gonna make you, make you, make you notice
    Gonna use my arms
    Gonna use my legs
    Gonna use my style
    Gonna use my sidestep
    Gonna use my fingers
    Gonna use my, my, my imagination
    ‘Cause I gonna make you see
    There’s nobody else here
    No one like me
    I’m special, so special
    I gotta have some of your attention give it to me

    I think this one wins on 2 counts – the oldest and the best!

    Judy in Disguise (with Glasses) by John Fred and his Playboy Band.

    I think Mrs BigJohn and I were doing the twist to that one in 1969.

    Simple Minds . Dont you forget about me was pretty popular
    Tell me why? Bronski Beat
    King , Love and Pride which I bought on 7″ single

    I hate to break this to you, but I’m not sure as they were actually girls…
