abandon yourself to the music

When was the last time you really let yourself go?  Not in a drunken, out of it, silly way, I mean totally abandoning yourself to music and dancing? Not to look good, or just to the rhythm of the beat, but because you feel the music pumping in your veins and can't help but you move with it.

The closest I come to that nowadays, is when I go for the (very) occasional run at night, with my iPod belting it out, in my head I'm in a club dancing (yes, this is how I motivate myself to jog).  

The fleeting memory of days before monogamous relationships and children, clubbing, in the early hours of the morning, in London somewhere, hot, sweaty, breathless and just moving with hundreds of other bodies, feeling them move against you, someones breath on your neck, dancing up close from behind, the opportunity, the spontaneity, the freedom... God, I loved it! I do miss it sometimes.

Here are ten songs that take me back and make me want to lose myself (some dance, some chill out)...

Underworld - Born Slippy
Moby - Porcelain
Lily Allen - Friend of Mine
Robert Miles - Children
Bjork - Come to Me
Pulp - Sorted for Es and Whizz
Massive Attack -  Protection
Body Rockers - I like the Way
Jimmy Sommerville & Marc Almond - Johnny/Remember Me
Faithless - Insomnia

What songs do it for you?
