Thanx Matt 8) ,
after listening to the whole song it seems quite familiar.
Never realized that it had such a great intro.
Anyway, would be interesting to know if anyone of the spotlighters here has been once to the old 54 between 1977 and 1980...
... or if only mid-20 youngsters like me are here
i would have loved to gone to NYC around the time.
as much fun as 54 seemed and i love the film and the music, it was a place for wannabes and posers, despite what they got up to.
people were free to do what they wanted, etc, etc but only if they looked a certain way or were famous.
paradise garage on the other hand was all about the music. yeah it was exclusive (you had to be a member or friend of a member) but it was fundamentally a different and more real experience.
