Johnny Nash – Keep On Falling In And Out Of Love

This is a Northern Soul Classic. It also means a lot to me personally. This is not just a record for the floor.

Dutch 70’s radio-dj Leo van der Goot used it as his signature-tune, and after him Rob Stenders made it his own. I first heard it in 1988 or 1989 on Radio Veronica, in the legendary Stenders and van Inkel show. It was the first time I heard Northern Soul and a record this rare. The lyrics are awesome and I lived by them through many girlfriends and restless nights in bars and clubs. This song has an urgency and drama to it that is unmatched. Pure bliss.
