We are sparkling with excitement here at LDV Towers. Lib Dem Disco is about to get underway in the Marriott.

It means that Mikey Smith from the Mirror has to stay up late and watch Lib Dems do strange things on the dance floor but I’m sure he enjoys it really.

Tonight, Jane Dodds, Christine Jardine, April Preston and James Spiby are the guest DJs. Will CJ be able to equal Jo Swinson’s triumph and win two years in a row?

I have to say that there are some mighty fine tunes on the set list.

And I have another reveal at the end…..

Jane Dodds

Katrina & the Waves – Walking on Sunshine

Beyoncé – In Da Club

Duffy – Mercy

Christine Jardine

Spice Girls – Wannabe

Bonnie Tyler – Holding Out For A Hero

Proclaimers – 500 Miles

April Preston

Deee Lite – Groove Is In The Heart

Pulp – Common People

Madonna – Like a Preyer

James Spiby

Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk

Ray Parker Jr. – Ghostbusters

Ricky Martin – Livin La Vida Loca

And that reveal..

Well, someone whispered to me earlier…

That there is a brand new light up dance floor.

So get your dancing shoes on and have a great night.

    So, if you are hoping for more selections, here’s one from ‘The Marriott’, ranging from the cynical to the optimistic:

    1. Lesley Gore – It’s my Party (and I’ll cry if I want to)
    2. Annie Lennox – Sisters are doing it for themselves
    3. Sir Harry Lauder (one for David Raw) – Keep right on to the end of the road

    PS You might struggle to dance to the last one; but it’s the message that counts!

    @John Marriot
    Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin?

    @Nonconformistradical

    You are quite right, of course. I had originally typed in Aretha’s name and then realised that the song is usually listed as by The Eurythmics so I compromised, which I know is a dirty word for the Lib Dems at the moment with reference to Brexit. What’s YOUR top three, then? And, by the way, it’s ‘MarrioTT’ with two t’s!

    I’m more Jethro Tull “Living in the Past” but don’t play that there!

    Yes, it is the work of decades to rescue the Lib Dem’s reputation, so as woolly as possible at this stage is all that’s needed!
