As we claw our way towards the end of the week, I thought I'd go ahead and post the final Pride Classics for 2016. Gay Anthems for a New Generation is quite a bit different from the last four circuit classics sets I just posted in that it focus' on the future while reaching into the past. It's intended to be a bit reflective with a lot of bouncy fun you'd expect from a Pride celebration.
This set draws from future house hits of the past few years (
What I Did For Love, Go All Night, I Got U, Real Love, Hustlin') to current hits like the fabulously funky Air Miles by Me & My Toothbrush and the disco hit taken from the HBO series Vinyl, Kill the Lights.
Of course the big winners here are modern-day bootleg re-edits of Gloria Gaynor's definitive anthem I Will Survive, Diana Ross' proclamative anthem I'm Coming Out to Madonna's everyday celebratory Holiday. Sandwich these with plain ole fun modern twists of Shannon's Let the Music Play, Vicetone's Hawt Stuff (think Donna Summer), 2 B Real (think Cheryl Lynn), Daft Punk's Around the World and George Michael's Fast Love and you got yourself one big-ass Pride throw-down.
I've got more that didn't make this year's cut so I thought I'd save them for 2017, which is Party Favorz' 10 year anniversary and likely our last but that's for a later discussion.
For now, we don't let the shit-news of the week keep us down. Instead, we get LOUDER and PROUDER making our voices heard! IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE!
Happy Pride Everybody!
