NEL MIO PERIODO ADOLESCENZIALE C'ERANO TANTI GRUPPI CHE MI FACEVANO IMPAZZIRE E PARLO ANCHE A NOME DEI MIEI COETANEI E QUASI COETANEI CHE SONO ANCHE INTENDITORI DI MUSICA DI UN CERTO LIVELLO .... ERANO SOPRATTUTTO PARECCHIE LE CANZONI DI QUESTA BAND CAPITANATA DALLA STUPENDA VOCE DI "NATALIE MARCHANT" CHE APPREZZAVAMO ALLA GRANDE NEGLI ANNI OTTANTA .... CANZONI CHE GUSTAVAMO , ASCOLTAVAMO , BALLAVAMO E RICHIEDEVAMO TANTISSIME VOLTE SIA IN RADIO CHE IN DISCOTECA .... CIAO RAGAZZI E GASATEVI ANCHE PER ME QUANDO LA ASCOLTERETE :))
Created specially for CjR Mix's latest dancefloor-tastic mashup combining 'You Should Be Dancing' by The Bee Gees - as seen in Saturday Night Fever - Sunscreem's Pressure (Sunscreem really should have been bigger, they had the tunes and a darker side) and S Club 7's Don't Stop Movin' which is still a total CHOON even though I never really liked anything else they did!
I watched Saturday Night Fever for the first time (don't judge me!) before making this and was struck by the contrast of Bay Ridge and the glamour of the nightclub, and how the bridge is a metaphor for escape, and how so many of the characters needed a release at the weekend but also an escape from the pressure of their lives...so it fitted really well with the 'Release me' message of the Sunscreem song - which is surprisingly serious for what sounds like a fairly typical early 90's pop-dance song.
Irony is, the article the film was based on 'Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night' was admitted 20 years later to be a complete fabrication!
