"Gimme Some Lovin'"

Remember when dance music was just that - music you could dance to? Nobody talked about hard house, old school, garage, trance etc... hell, dance music nowadays has more genres than jazz. Better yet, it didn't matter if there were guitars to the fore; as long as it had a beat you could move to, you were out there on the floor shaking your stuff. Well, this is one of those wonderful, genre-defying songs that I remember getting totally overexcited to in the days before the United Nations forces told me I didn't know how to dance and therefore shouldn't try to. When you hear the Hammond organ stutter into gear like a twelve-cylinder engine and the unstoppable bass rhythm leads you into Stevie Winwood's soul-drenched yelp, you know you've entered the happy zone.
