I can't dance. And won't. Not until Morgan shows me the ropes and I get over that whole feeling-like-an-idiot thing.

I've got to be honest, Terry. I was a fan of Chicago dating back to "Saturday in the Park"--AND, I was a club dj from 1981 on...

...and I'd never even HEARD "Street Player" until The Bucketheads sampled it in "The Bomb".

I then found a bootleg copy of the Street Player extended mix 12" and started cross-mixing between the two...but I never got the sense that the crowds I played for were aware of the original song.

So many pre-90's "classics" have a certain regionality to them--as a DJ, I could always tell where a person grew up by what they requested. I always chalked "Street Player" up as an example of that--and I associate "Street Player" with New York...

Granted, I was living (and dj'ing) in Wisconsin until '92...and I tended to spin in the more commercial clubs once I moved out here, missing out on Seattle's gloriously sleazy club past...and probably a lot of great music memories because of it.

And, to answer the question...

Sadly, I'm long absent from dancing in clubs...but when I want to get those old club juices flowing, I find myself pumping up anything by Chromeo in the car...

PS--Terry, I'm sure you would have some fun conversations with NWDMA's John England. :)
