Northern Soul Boy - The Story Behind the Song

A Northern Soul
March 14, 2016
Northern Soul has a very special place in the hearts of many people in Staffordshire. Why? well it can rightly claim to have given this music/dance movement a home right from its inception in the 60s. Northern Soul is very much about musical success borne from failure. Unsung heroes signed (or ditched) by obscure labels suddenly found themselves being catapulted into underground stars. Northern Soul gave forgotten soul artists an opportunity to shine and be successful. Songs destined for the AR bin instead made their way onto the dancefloors of the Torch, the Twisted Wheel and Blackpool Mecca, stoking the heat of a dance phenomenon that required skill, agility and more than a smattering of athleticism.
The Idioms song, 'A Northern Soul' pays
homage to all of those that made dancing to otherwise neglected songs a way of life.
