Yeah maybe that. But I just mean that the weather tends to affect what people want to play and what people want to hear, and what people think others want to hear... ultimately what they feel they should play. So it's inevitable that in a place that is ALWAYS sunny, you're gonna hear a lot of sunny music. And you're gonna get sick of it, however good it is - and to circle back to your point, you're right of course, most of what I'm talking about isn't good.
Also of course, Portugal isn't really sunny all the time, it's just people act as though it is. I honestly feel that there has been a secret agreement, some collective decision to pretend winter doesn't happen - for me the clearest evidence of that is the fact that all the houses have no heating despite the fact that for a month or two each year you really do need heating.
In the UK you can have lovely hot days, but sometimes you can have beautiful cold ones, brooding atmospheric grey or crisp winter mornings and so on. But Portugal just feels wrong when it's cold and grey, buildings haven't been designed to look good in the rain. These last few months have been kinda miserable, it's not that it's been cold - it's not rained or anything like that, if you had this weather in the UK you'd be talking about what a lovely mild winter it was, but for me, and not just me, it feels wrong. I've spoken to taxi drivers who said the exact same thing, Portugal just isn't the real Portugal when it's not hot.
This year, though mild, winter seems to have dragged on, I can't wait for it to end I feel like I'm marking time in a sort of nowhere place just now. Although it was 21 today, Liza went to the beach and swam in the sea... perhaps the end is in sight.
So no disco isn't cancelled.
