Debbie Deb’s proletariat jam “Lookout Weekend” is best played at 11 p.m. on a Friday night, when the party is starting to come to life, you and your pals have just slurped down your first round at the bar and you’re ready to hit the floor and forget that your boss has made the past week hell. The 1984 single remains one of the most accurate depictions of weekend nightlife pressed to vinyl. From its opening lyrics, “Jumping music, slick DJs, fog machines and laser rays” to its repeated refrain “Lookout weekend ’cause here I come, because weekends were made for fun,” it’s the story of why we hit the clubs.
