Captain Obvious - Standing In The Way of Survival (Gossip vs Gloria Gaynor)

from 21​/​22 Instamatic & Captain Obvious by fingertrouble aka Reality Engine



Created for the recent Crumplbangers Challenge from DJ Firth and oki who wanted us to create a confidence inspiring song with pride - well Pride came early, as I wanted to create a defiantly queer banger to resist what's going on in Qatar and the sad shooting at Club Q in Colorado, echoes of Pulse - and it was Trans Day of Remembrance yesterday.

Our barricades are our dancefloors, our resistance is queer joy.

Surprised no-one in the challenge used these tracks - nor has made this mashup (AFAIK - did a quick Google and YT and Bootie Mashup DB search, but didn't spend hours looking...so apologies if it's an accidental reboot) but this is an obvious quick AvsB joining new and old queer anthems - I Will Survive from the pre-AIDS disco era and until today, and Gossip's Standing In The Way of Control which is the same theme for my generation.

Thanks to Ian Fondue for the Deelay recommendation, used that to good effect on this track.
