As night's out in my previous life (pre-baby!) go, this was actually one not one that would make 'my top 10 but it was my hen night and therefore quite special. My bridesmaid and I picked a cabaret night in a local hotel, they had a reputation for being very good (and busy) nights and I had been to several already. I think we may have even booked without knowing the theme.

That would be where we went wrong I think! It was a Caribbean Night and apart from our group there was only one other, another hen party! The food was not great and due to a lack of people was not the best atmosphere on the dance floor. Despite this it was still an enjoyable evening, my highlight being the very last song - the DJ started playing "New York, New York" and without thinking I just shouted to him (yes, there were that few people on the dance floor he could here me easily!) 'NO, don't play that!'
Although a bit of a cliche, I wouldn't normally mind but with no more than 10 people on the floor it really wouldn't work! He asked me what to play instead so I said the first thing that came to mind [ Robbie Williams 'Angels'. Two of my best friends and I then stood, arms round each other singing at the top of our voices in a little huddle. As it ended I remember one of my bridesmaids (she NEVER dances) shaking her head and saying "You lot better not be crying!"
Every time I hear the song now it always reminds me of my random hen night, and my lovely girls.
