Well, my friends, the time has come to raise the roof and have some fun. Go ahead and throw away the work to be done.
New Year’s Eve is tomorrow! Er’body will sing, er’body will dance. I suggest that you lose yourself in wild romance.
Be a part of the people dancing all in the street. Feel the rhythm all in your feet.
Remember, life is good, wild and sweet. So, let the music play on, play on, play on, play on, play on, play on, ………………..
I don’t know bout you, but I got plans to partay, karamu, fiesta, forever, all night long and all night strong! (Don’t act like you don’t remember Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long!”)
So come on and sing along!
Tomorrow, New Year’s Eve, the clubs, big and small, around the world will be jumping! The people will be pushing and shoving, trying to be the next in line! the time will be mine!
NEXT! A little bit of a history lesson..wouldn’t be “us” if we did not share, right?
We owe all of how we party and where we party to our ancestors.
In many black cultures in parts of Africa, the Caribbean & England, a ‘shubeen’ is akin to what we call a ‘hole in the wall’ club. The word ‘shub-een’ translates from the patois broken English to ‘shove in’ as in to ‘shove in people into a tight space’. DJ’s would assemble turntables and huge speakers in the basements of houses, where people would come, crowd in and celebrate the vibrancy of the music and culture elbow to elbow!
See what’s going down in Houston!
