50 Tunes For 50 Years: Soldiers Of Twilight

All it takes for my heart to fall in love with a tune is a diva who knows her way to my soul. A tad of a tall order but something Lady Bird does within the first bar of this essential house track by Soldiers of Twilight. More uplifting than a crane driver on MDMA, this house beauty has accompanied some of the finest dancefloor moments of my life with the majority of them having HRH Queen Josephine playing on the decks.

For this is one of those sun-kissed sultry anthems that is her trademark, her DSD, Sunday Sundae, forever Brighton in the sunshine, Queenie trademark. Classier than I will ever be and forever ensuring the saucy wiggle was had as she shined from behind the decks and did something I took forever to learn to do. Smile. And girl does she bring the smile when she delivers heartfelt anthems like this one. All you need to do is Believe. Because if you do as the glorious Ladybird instructs and my Queenie forever insists, you are half way there. A lesson I’ve always been happy to learn, a lesson that comes with four-to-the-floor beats, a French touch and regal wink. Long live the Queen.
