Why do DJs always look so miserable?
Their eyes hold such sadness
Clubs are a place of revelry, joy and laughter. Many a happy moment has been forged dancing along to the tunes played out by the DJ.
But have you ever taken a moment out to look up, and acknowledge the sad, sad eyes of the DJ? Is it the pressure? Why are DJs so sad?
Ollie (who DJs) said: “I’m trying to think of something smart to say but it’s not really happening. The real answer is because my concentration face looks the same as my sad face.”
Yes, concentration is key, and DJing is a high intensity activity but many a set has gone by with not a smile to be seen.
Louis, who is a DJ too, said: “I don’t really know why it is. I guess I’m just concentrating. I do always seem to look really sad in the pictures though, even though I really enjoy it at the time.”
Often though it looks like their mind is elsewhere. Not wrapped up in the craziness of the club, but instead pondering life’s worries, like if they locked their back door or whether they’ve fed their goldfish this week.
Until there’s a glorious moment. A moment not frequently seen that must be appreciated for all it’s worth. When a DJ genuinely appears to be enjoying their own music.
Look at this pure, unadulterated joy:
Have you ever seen such a happy man? In his element. You can almost hear him saying “Oiiiiii”.
The question remains, and it is simply a shame that, on the most part, DJs do just look fucking miserable.
