Sylvester – Sex
Two friends recently played this for me before we went out and I’ve had it on repeat since.
Donna Summer – I Feel Love (Patrick Cowley Mix)
I have so many fond memories of this song, especially playing it on the day Ireland said ‘YES’ to Marriage Equality.
Pet Shop Boys Feat Dusty Springfield – What Have I Done To Deserve This? (Shep Pettibone Mix)
One of the best collaborations ever!
Hazel Dean – Searchin’ (I Gotta Find A Man) U.S. remix
This was a staple at many a house party when I lived in Galway.
Rochelle – Love Me Tonight
Picked this up recently in a bargain bin in Berlin and I love it.
