Rainbow Nation

I was driving along the heavily congested roads of Bandung with some friends during a weekend for dinner. Instead of stressing out among the stucked traffic, we had a great time staying inside the car listening to my Oldies But Goodies compilation. The music was played so loud, I bet people around us can hear it too :)

My friends commented: "Why aren't the clubs in Jakarta playing such songs... something listenable... something danceable...!!!" FYI, unlike clubs I've been to in Singapore, Bangkok or Hongkong, most of the clubs in Jakarta are playing either Progressive House (in the southern part) or "Kota" House Music (in the west and northern part). I personally 'couldn't stand' those music. Apparently, my friends share the same ideas with me.

It's been years since I went into the clubs here in Jakarta (but never miss one if I was overseas)... since the big wave of Progressive House and "Kota" House swipe away all the good dance tunes and classic discos in Jakarta during the mid-90's. Somehow I believe that the widely use of Esctacy pills are also part of the contributing reason. Those who have tried the pills told me that "these music" made them even 'higher' while taking the pills. Yeah right... but for those who drinks regular (alcoholic) beverages: these songs sucks!!! They are just beat and drums, no melody, no singing!!! Not to mention the "Kota" House which I personally find so monoton and "kampungan" ("so country"). Well, maybe it's just me getting old. Time to step aside and let the younger ones take over the dancefloor... LOL

I remember how envy I was to friends living in Singapore and Hongkong while going to the clubs in their countries in the late 90's. Their clubs was playing such a good music: Cher, Kylie, Gina G, Fragma or even SASH.... Something that I could never have back in Jakarta at that time. Non-stop compilations that I could only enjoyed from imported CDs which are not cheap at all.

Anyway, those times of craving and longing for going to a club that plays "good" music are over. Most clubs in Jakarta are still playing that Progressive and "Kota" House, BUT NOW... I MIX MY OWN MUSIC.... Hua ha ha ha haaa!!! *evil laugh in the background*

So for those who shares the same "misery" like me, this compilation is dedicated for you all! :)
