Have you ever had one of those moments that just completely make your week?
Last night, after having gone to a ritual and having an interlude with my ex, he and James and I went to Sky Pub to dance. They played a string of good songs after we got there, but then they fell into a prolonged rut (presaged by their playing my request for “Go West” - but they played the Village People version, not PSB! Whattafuckizzat?) Anyway… round about 2:15 we were getting depressed and irritated… but then -
(insert fabulous atmospheric, piano, trumpet riff here)
Yes, they finally played Mylène Farmer’s “Désenchantée”, which Éric had requested, like, an hour before! Jesus murphy! Éric and James and I dashed over to the stage and jump on (I’d never danced on the stage before), and for the next five minutes I’m absolutely on fire!
Once it’s over I race out of the club and pitch myself onto the pavement and rest and heavy breathe for awhile… I felt like I was in Rick’s Café Américaine and they’d just played La Marseillaise (gratuitous Casablanca reference). I swear, it felt like the whole song was one five-minute-long orgasm! I was as tingly all over as if I’d had some of the most awesome sex of my life. Uh-mazing! We left right after the song (quit while you’re ahead, I figured… besides, it was almost 3:00). I was practically high all the way home and when I got up this morning. Wheeeeeeow.
I adore Mylène Farmer in general and “Désenchantée” in particular. In fact, I’d say it’s one of maybe 5 songs which would be capable of inducing such a musicgasm. The other four are the PSB’s “Go West”, "To Step Aside, and “Up Against It”, and the national anthem.
So what songs can give you guyrls a musicgasm?
