I’m enjoying the responses so far. Please keep sharing!
Rand and I have started compiling lists of both slow songs and upbeat songs. I know my taste, but I also know that I want *everyone* to have a good time!
Here are some of my “must haves” for dance music:
Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It–Will Smith
Jump Around–House of Pain
Brown-Eyed Girl–Van Morrisson
Baby Got Back–Sir Mix-a-Lot (it’s a college thing)
YMCA–(probably on a lot of people’s no-play lists, but it’s also a college thing!)
Without Me–Eminem. I cannot explain my love for this song. I’ve already downloaded the clean version, because dude, it’s totally inappropriate
Land of 1000 Dances–Wilson Pickett
It Takes Two–MC Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock
Bust a Move–Young MC
Something by KC and the Sunshine Band…but I haven’t quite made up my mind which.
Something by ABBA (ditto)
Molly–Jackdaw (it’s a Buffalo thing)
Brick House–The Commodores
Something by Kool and the Gang other than Celebration. Maybe Jungle Boogie. Or Get Down on It.
Something by Bon Jovi…Bad Medicine, maybe.
Complete list, no…but you get the idea. I’m concerned about not having enough *older* music and *newer* music. I can see my list being sort of 70s and 80s heavy.
