I used to go to the bar 5 days a week back in the day (read early 1990s), and have not been back since. I do not know if that is because I quit drinking, or because i started to meet people exclusively via the Intertubez, or a combination of both....but the one thing I miss about the bar scene is the music.

I was never a dancer. I dance like a.....well, take it from me, I do not dance well. but nothing gets to me like the loud pounding sound of dance music on the dance floor.

I assume that these same songs that I grew up with in the early 90s in the gay bars were played in the heterosexual bars, but as I never went to any.... I cannot say for sure.

So, please join with me in getting a dance groove on and having a good time.

*I know the Dead Milkmen song came out in 87 but it transcends the test of time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
