    Default For those who used to go Sparks at Taka

    I remember about 10 Years back when sparks disco is still operating at Taka level 7, the DJ used to play an intro music with laser presentation for the start of the disco session at the main hall. The intro music is actually a song that sounds like Orchestra / opera type which the ambient is quite spectacular to me. Anybody know the song title?

    Its not. Far from the song that I want. There is a group singing on background and only 3 or 4 sentences which they keep repeating. Its difficult to describe. Only when I hear it then I know. Thanks for your help.

    My first time in a disco was at the Junk which was later called Xanadu heheh....

    Scandal was like a great hangout at the Raffle City along with the Reading Room at the Marina Square. I use to be involve with a lot of the promotions in all these clubs especially promoting various cigarette brands and fashion houses...these were haunts that still brings back alot of wild memories man....

    Another iconic spot - Rumours!
    It ruled the club scene (and tea dance too!) from 87/88 till 89. Anyone belong to the 80s era and has been there?

    not that I am aware of heheh my limited visit there was not to party though I am very much the patying wild man back then due to my work in the entertainment, fashion and marketing related industry heh. I was there to work in some way to promote some product or service and doing launches.

    As far as I know, it is by word of mouth among themselves lah. BUt those two place were out right handout for the gay community heh..
