There always comes a time in the campaign, any campaign, when you feel just a bit tired of it all. It happens to all of us. Probably Hannibal had a moment on the Alps with his battle squadron of Carthaginian elephants where he sighed and said to himself “Does the Roman Empire really even mean that much to me?”

At this time, it is important to listen to some music. Not any type of music. You have to listen to the “real” sounds. That means one thing – Northern Soul.

Here is my top ten list to get the big beat going for your campaign, no matter in what department. (Since I’m not running for the National Party, I’ll even share it with you for free. That’s what we incentive-sapping, envious socialists do.)

1. “There’s a Ghost in My House” R. Dean Taylor

2. “Baby I need your loving” The Four Tops

3. “Third Finger, Left Hand” Martha Reeves and the Vandellas

4. “Put a little love in your heart” Dusty Springfield

5. “Stormy” The Supremes

6. “Feel the need in me” Detroit Emeralds

7. “Just say Goodbye” Esther Phillipps

8. “Right back where we started from” Maxine Nightingale

9. “Band of Gold” Freda Payne

10. “Helpless” Kim Weston
