It was mid-1990, and I was still sporting the double denim look, having fallen for The Smiths and Morrissey in a big way (I think I heard my first Smiths record the day after they split - perfect timing). Because I'd failed to get the grades for university the previous summer, I was in the middle of a year out. Where most people would've tried Inter-railing around baroque European capitals, I rejected such exotica in favour of an admin position at a haulage company in the spare office of British Gas in Preston.

Having also missed out on Spike Island and the second summer of love, I realised I was already past it at 18. Everyone else was wearing baggy kecks, had curtains for hair and waved glo-sticks in fields near Warrington at the weekend. It was time for me to learn about this thing they called "dance music". (Would you believe it? Music that you were supposed to dance to! I was used to nightclubs like Raiders, where boys dived headfirst into a post-punk thrash-punch melee the second someone played Buzzcocks, or kohl-eyed girls with crimped hair swayed mysteriously in mourning for The Sisters Of Mercy.)

So I asked one of the girls at my local vinyl-pile, Action Records on Church St, to whip me up a tape of salvation/education. A friend of a friend, Jacky (who, for some reason, preferred to be called Jessie, and was a big fan of Disney cartoons) thankfully took pity on me and did the honours. Not all of it was her choice. I asked for Hippychick (which famously sampled How Soon Is Now) as a sop to my indie heritage, though swiftly it became my least favourite of the tracks. (I hate hearing it even now, 'cos it lulls you into thinking some unwitting idiot has playlisted The Smiths on radio by mistake.)

No, I never did end up taking the train to the Bank Quay for late night raves. I didn't even really grow my hair. But I did add this to my list of Walkman-friendly cassettes for the rest of that summer. I went to university a year late. It's actually quite easy to get a place when you already know what your results are.

So, what did I learn from my "dance education"? Dunno. I spent most of my first year at uni playing George Formby songs at top volume and drinking. Let's look at that tracklisting:

1. World In Motion by EnglandNewOrder
It was 1990! Gazza's tears! E for England. John Barnes raps. Keith Allen makes a fool of himself in the video. Even I spotted that this was a rip-off of the Reportage theme that "the other two" did for Def II. Still the best England World Cup theme, though. I probably asked for this one to be on the tape.

2. Expression by Salt 'n' Pepa
Two years before it broke the top 40! Still the kind of story-telling, make-a-point rap that reminds me of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, unfortunately, though I became a fan from the Very Necessary album onwards. And there's something about that Queens "nu yoik" accent that's very sexy.

3. Starfish & Coffee by Prince
A classic "list of random stuff" track in the mould of The Beatles' I Am The Walrus, as told by Dr Seuss. I did buy the single Sign O' The Times but Prince has never really grabbed me. My mate Stewart Tavener, who I was in a guitar band with at the time, loved this song.

4. Hippychick by SoHo
Probably the only non-Billy Bragg top ten song ever to namecheck the 1984-5 miners' strike. Subtle Soul II Soul backbeat, of course, as well as *that* sample.

5. Eye Know by De La Soul
Now you're talking! Something I had actually heard from out of the actual charts! And, because we were still in the midst of a Levi-flogging Stax soul revival in 1990, I was more than familiar with the source of the Otis Redding sample. Even *I* wasn't stupid enough to say things like "it's just talking over someone else's song", though. I bought my first Levi's in 1994, fact fans.

6. Heart by Neneh Cherry
Not "Hearts" as listed. My favourite bit of Neneh Cherry is her faux-Cockney accent on Buffalo Stance which, in turn, inspired a devotion for Betty Boo (I think that Doin' The Do was the first pop-rap 12" I bought). Note the number of "strong wimmin" artists on this tape. Girls, eh?

7. Fools Gold by Stone Roses
I was there! I was watching! I was in the audience! When Ian Brown shouted "Amateurs!" at Tracey MacLeod on The Late Show. For ages, I thought the line "Marquis De Sade never made no boots like these" was "My kemo sabe never made no boots like these". Tonto, you have lots to answer for.

8. Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Saint Etienne
Pre-Cracknell Ets. This was the track that probably got the most play from this tape. Love the haunting reggae feel reminiscent of The Specials' Ghost Town. I was presenting a radio show in 1994 so was able to select this to represent their "best of" collection. I also liked Cola Boy, so nyer.

9. Heaven by The Chimes
Whoomp! There it is! The Incredible Bongo Band's famous Apach

The Evening Before 2010

The Evening Before 2010

Far out from the party floor, laughter wove through the decorative fishing net, and settled upon the dining area where we sat. Her pouty face told me she was not in the least amused though, in stark contrast to the image formed in my mind seconds ago when her mother told me how this little girl was so thrilled when told the night before that they would be coming to this Hawaiian theme party.

Maybe next time we should prepare some sweets and balloons to give away just in case some little angels may tag along to a party meant for the more mature.

Fifteen minutes to midnight, everyone wandered through the hallway toward the outdoor playground getting ready for the firework display. Young boys and girls swiftly made their way onto the climber, singing their favorite songs and clapping along, some swaying on the dewy grass alongside.

And there she was, somehow managed to climb up high to join her older mates, flashing the widest grin I came across that evening. Then the first squeak of firework broke out after the sonorous shout of counting-down, as we witnessed bright stemless flowers bloom against the night sky.
