“This isn’t a song that I would necessarily listen to now, but it’s very meaningful to me as being emblematic of a certain time in my life. When I was first doing those wedding DJ gigs, and when I would go to other people’s parties – I was 16 or so – this song would get played, and the response to it was always amazing.
“It became a big party tune, not necessarily in a cool, hip nightclub way but in a more everyday way – people’s 18th birthdays and so on. There was a whole period before I went to university where so many of the best times I had with friends – we'd just goofing around at crappy house parties or shitty nightclubs, and this song would come on. People always loved it; it was so joyously silly.
“Love Shack is a beautifully put-together pop song, and it’s one of those things that can just make you feel happy and joyful no matter what. People probably feel the same way about Happy by Pharrell – it’s sort of boundless, almost bordering on the facile. So even though I might not play Love Shack now, whenever I do hear it, I have an enormous fondness for it.”
