Attn all DJs LMM begin our campaign to bring back the last dance song.
It seems fitting to write this blog on Feb 29 as today is one of the most romantic days of the year when , traditionally , women can ask blokes to marry them and what better conduit to romance than the last dance song?
Back when I was a nipper every home town Ritzy and Mecca DJ would play a last dance song (sometimes a trio of last dance songs) to enable couples to slow dance at the end of the evening. The tradition died when the dance music DJ took over the decks but it feels like the right time to bring back this glorious tradition which has only survived at school proms. Lets ladle on the cheese and bring back the songs that allow the gent to say “may I have this dance?”
Calling all wedding DJs….become a cupid of the decks….a jockey of love…..bring back the last dance!
