Unlikely bombs

What is your favourite dancefloor bomb made by an artist you’d never expect to hear in a club?

Inspired by the fact that Luke Una played this Paul McCartney track the other night

Not dancefloor but this is a killer from an expected source. Out to Chris Soft Rocks for this

Dropped this more than once, peak time too, always worked. It has that driving beat, and the psych backwards guitar solos get people’s attention…

Another one from Macca. The demo version sounds like J Dilla. Nick Cubley put this on a mix for my radio show, it’s such a beautiful record.

I bought this Queen single back in 96 but didn’t think too much of it again until Harvey dropped it at pikes towards the end. One of those ‘why did noone think of this before’ moments

I love how this has basically turned into a Paul McCartney thread https://youtu.be/QAnNgCsNMnk

more of a warm-up tune than a peak-time bomb but I think this fits :slight_smile:

Fantastic! And unexpected. Thanks for sharing.

Couple from Boney M

Always thought it would have been great if Norman Jay had played this at Carnival

And it’s no Ra Ra Rasputin but this is pretty good too

Unlikely Bombs indeed. Really like that second one.

It’s an edit by Peter Blaker. He seems to just make stuff for RV and doesn’t release it. Sounded great at about 4am in Barbarellas the year before lockdown.
