The transporter

#94: Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

The piece of music that transports me back to my childhood is M People’s catchy track, One night in heaven. The reason for this is, sometime around 1993/94, we went on a family holiday to a Haven resort. On one of the evenings, there was a fancy dress competition for children. I was entered as, get this… a pea in a pod! It was all homemade, with my green cardboard shell, green jumper, my dad’s green football socks, face paint and of course, green balloons. First, we had to do a parade around the dance floor for the judges to see our outfits – this is where the song comes in! Whilst shuffling my way around the dance floor, this song was playing. Every time I hear it (which doesn’t happen that often anymore), I’m transported back.

Just to finish off the story, I won the competition! 😀 Go me!

M People – One night in heaven.
