13 Songs That Will Instantly Transport You To Your Teenage Disco Years
We still know the words
Irish teen discos - what an experience they were.
Dodgy tans, dodgy tunes and dodgy shifts. If you didn't spend your weeks picking out the perfect outfit, only for it to be sweated on by the sweaty group of lads.
But the most important part of the night were the tunes, some of which are iconic.
Hearing any one of these tunes is going to instantly bring you back to your disco days:
1. Cha Cha Slide
Tenner bets you still remember every move to this song, without his prompts.
You're singing it in your head, aren't you.
3. The Ketchup Song
We didn't know what they were saying, but we didn't let that stop us.
I mean, can you even say the word 'yeah' without breaking into a bit of Usher?
5. Wasn't Me
We sang along to this to our heart's content, like the innocent 13-year-olds we were.
6. Hey Baby
If you didn't get a sore throat after this song played, then you weren't singing it right.
7. Pretty Green Eyes
When we originally learned to fist-bump.
8. Cotton Eyed Joe
Where did he come from? Where did he go?
9. Amhrán na bhFiann
It was a sin to end a disco and not play this.
10. Ireland's Call
For the lads.
11. Now You're Gone
He was the soundtrack to your teen discos, and now Basshunter plays Freshers Weeks around the country.
Oh how times change.
12. AM to PM
13. 1 2 Step
Many a dance routines were practiced in the yard before the disco, specifically for this song.
Did we leave any out?
