Jon Gomm: This is my cover of the Chaka Khan dancefloor classic from 1982. When I was a kid, I played gigs in pubs in Blackpool, and often my audience was mostly elderly ladies spending their pension money on bacardi! Quite often they’d tolerate my original songs and blues covers for only so long, and eventually a representative would be sent over to remonstrate with me. “Excuse me young man, please can you play something we can dance to?” So this is my emergency disco song.
