So like I was saying, I had my first official Night On The Town last Saturday. It was a whirlwind tour wherein I hit all the hot spots of Ljubljana, with the evening culminating with a few hours of dancing at Global. For some reason 80's night at Global opened with about an hour's worth of Hits of the 70's, but I managed to power through and have a nice time nonetheless.
Since this was my first time out dancing I can't make any definitive judgement, but being a blogger I was still taking it all in and making lists in my head. Here are two lists I made that night:
Things that kinda suck about dancing in Slovenia (as compared to NYC):
1) The sheer number of European mega-hits that I don't know
2) The sheer number of American non-hits that I've never heard that were nonetheless European mega-hits
3) The sheer number of American (western) mega-hits that were also European mega-hits, but are just plain embarassing to dance to (someone tell me, what or who is a Su Su Sudio)?
4) The dizzying array of big sweaty cornballs who bump into you, breeze past you, or try to proposition you while writhing to abovementioned songs.
Things that kinda rock:
1) People here actually dance!
2) Even the men! (and with zeal!)
3) Discovering that despite my music snobbery, in the right (fun!) company I'm able to have fun dancing to abovementioned songs
4) Discovering that no matter where you go in the world, almost everyone on the dance floor (including YOU!) is a big sweaty cornball at one point or another.
