Songs that remind you of your club/bar days

Is there a song that takes you back to a time and place every time you hear it?

Every time I hear this song I remember giving head to a hot leather guy at Touche in the mid 90s.

R202 Rene's was my spiritual home ! I posted upthread about doing lines at the table and dancing all night. Then you must know or heard of Sable Starr ! Sable was dating a lesbian heiress to the Johnson and Johnson fortune that was madly in love with her and was going to pay for Sable to have the surgery,but Sable wasnt ever going to and was stringing her along. That old dyke lavished furs and gowns and jewels on Sable .One night Sable and I were in a limo making the rounds of the bars and doing massive amounts of coke and she picked up this scorching hot Coast Guard stud. There we are rolling down Kennedy Blvd in a limo while Sable is riding that dick . We end up back at sables apartment (penthouse where she lived with the heiress) at 6 am and the dyke was beyond enraged. A screaming match ensued ,and next thing you know Sable and I are running down the street with loads of furs and dresses and all these morning commuters about wrecked ! It was HILARIOUS . Ah the memories .

I bet a lot came in thru the port of Tampa. My friends and I would often get a shitty room at the Floridian (like $35 a night,yikes!) and run around acting like fools . I woke up one morning at the Floridian and there were 2 guys in bed with me,2 guys in bed with my friend,and 2 sleeping on the floor. All of us buck naked,and to this day I have NO memory of that night ! Isnt it funny though how we could stomp around then at all hours of the night and never ever felt unsafe ?

Worked at Disney World in the early 90s. We got paid on Thursday, and Thursday night was free admission to Pleasure Island for Disney "cast members"; because so many gay men worked at Disney, Thursday night at Pleasure Island became an unofficial gay night, especially at Mannequins Dance Palace, which had a rotating dance floor. Me and my friends would dance on the edge of the floor, teasing those standing on the sidelines when this song came on.

R61, "Invisible" by Alison Moyet definitely was one of those videos only played at the clubs. It was such a great, 1985-sounding song, it should have been played to death on MTV and become a huge hit. But MTV refused to play her videos because she was overweight. She said it. A couple of the VJs from MTV at the time said it as well. MTV didn't play videos by fat girls, that was just just their policy, however unwritten the policy was. Moyet's album, "Alf," was a huge, multi-platinum hit in England. It was as huge a hit in England as "Diamond Life" by Sade, which was released around the same time. MTV had no problem playing Sade videos, though. So Sade broke through in the U.S., but Alison never did. Hmmmm.... I wonder why?

So first was 2008 when I heard “ just dance” lady Gaga at club night called Cherry Pop in Los Angeles, I think the song was big in the la club scene before it was big worldwide and the beat it starts with is never heard anything like. No joke I was hanging with some of the Bryan Singer kept boys, doing coke, going to the abbey, area, wearing Ed Hardy 🤦‍♂️ just having a VERY LA club cool kid moment. The other is “Disturbia” by Rihanna reminds me of the Miami club scene, and clubs like score a and twist 🤷‍♂️. The entire 2007-2010 era reminds me of Gaga, Britney Spears circus, and Rihanna.

Let me correct that for you, most of the people who owned those clubs became rich because of the clubs. There were also rampant drug sales going on at so many NYC clubs, the owners sure knew about it.

The guy who owned the Limelight, Peter Gatien, was arrested for many offenses. Her was deported back to his native Canada in 1998.

"Gatien was acquitted of his drug-racketeering and conspiracy charge in 1998 but was deported to Canada after pleading guilty to subsequent state tax-evasion charges."

The vast majority of clubs I went to between 1990 and 2000ish were owned by the mafia. Sometimes it would be some young upstart entrepreneur, and every once in a while a gay guy or guys would buy and run a club for a while, but more often than not it was some old mafia guy, or more entertainingly, some old dude and his wife.

I remember one club where the owner's wife would sit at the door to take the cover charge. She was sweet and also usually drunk or high out of her fucking mind. In a clapping-two-beats-behind-everyone-else kinda way. But hey, that place was home for a lot of us when no place else would have us.

R271 The Odyssey was catty-corner from The Beverly Center in Los Angeles, just a little south of West Hollywood. The article below gives a great history of it, including video footage from Halloween 1981, as well as a brief clip from "Night Shift" that was filmed there that shows the spinning light poles (they raised and lowered from the ceiling.) It was mostly a club for18 and over, but you could certainly get in at 17 and maybe younger. The young gay boys would always be followed around by the much older chicken hawks (they were definitely not hot Daddies.) It was destroyed by fire in 1985.

This one. Only heard in clubs. No one bought the single.

Law of the Land by the Temptations playing at the Tenth Floor in the 70s. It holds up.

R2977 Walking on Thin Ice was the go to song in early 1980s clubs. A truly great record. It was the last song John recorded with Yoko before he was killed.

The Associates records were also popular in clubs in NYC. Billy Mackenzie was gorgeous and a true talent.
