Nightclubbing really came of age as a mass market pursuit in the 80s in Scotland, with seemingly no weekend complete without a bit of club action.
And this outpouring of footlose action was not confined to the big cities, with clubbing meccas like Flicks in Brechin opening their doors for the first time.
With so many of us At the Dancin, and so many tastes to cater for, putting together a playlist that covers all bases is nigh on impossible, as many DJs knew only too well.
And with our selection we have tried to make everyone hapy, with a nod to the club purists, the populists, the rockers, and the Indie kids too.
While there will be no pleasing everybody, homegrown favourites like Deacon Blue always seemed to go down well in all but the trendiest of clubs.
