Last night a DJ saved my life.

Last night a DJ saved my life is not only a great song from Indeep. Its a great book as well. In this book you can in over 500 pages read about the history of the DJ, and almost all types of dance music. You can find this book in most online bookstores. Its a nice chritmas gift to a person who loves dance music and clubbing.
Last Night a DJ Saved My Life is a book written by Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton about the history of DJing published in 1999. A compilation album of the same name was released with the book. The album contains various clips ranging from 1970s reggae to Handel's Largo, the first song to reach radio airwaves, in 1906. The book takes its name from the Indeep single "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life." In 2006, The Observer named Last Night... #45 on their list of the greatest music books.
Both experienced journalists, Brewster and Broughton seek to chronicle the role of the DJ in the 20th century. Starting from Jimmy Savile, who was effectively the first DJ, Broughton and Brewster track the rise of the DJ as a figure in music. The authors champion the idea that the DJ is an "unsung hero" of popular music and is an artist himself. In examining the place of a DJ over time, Last Night... also follows the rise and fall of various musical genres and subcultures.
The companion album, which was compiled by Brewster himself, serves as an overview of dance and DJ music.


Heres a video with the song with the same title as the book...
