Musical Help Requested


Recommended Posts

I'm DJ'ing a friends Stag & Doe on Saturday night and I'm looking for help with my selections. Now be serious here: I cannot play a 72 minute version of the 'Dead playing Crazy Fingers. So, what are some tunes that would be cool to play yet also be crowd pleasers? I tend towards the funk but I will need to mix it up for everyone.

Any suggestions provided will be greatly appreciated!

Love and peace,

Well, Stag and Doe?

I am going to assume you arent dealing with blue haired people.........man, I gots ta be careful or I am going to go on for an hour!

Beatles Beatles Beatles is safe in the early 'non-dance' stage.

After that, holy moly, good luck. I hope you know your crowd.

Get on Kazaa or something similar, and look for:

Lay Down Sally, Getting Jiggy With It (I'ld be up!), Pump Up The Volume, ok, I am done. I could go on and on and on.

You have to know your crowd, so bring EVERYTHING. Just make a crapload of cd's, but keep them in some sort of order (eg, Funk, Dance, Hip Shit, Old Time RocknRoll) and you should be alright. The more you bring, the safer you are.

A DJ is like a referee.......no one notices when they are good, but BOY, do they notice when they are bad!

ask backbacon for his Mega mix....it covers pretty well everything!!

For a guy that just recently came out of the closet, that makes alot of sense.

What is your ex/girlfriend's number again? I think a few people are looking for it.

Speaking of which, George Michael goes over very well.

Stag huh? Let's assume you want things to get out of control:

- Jimi Hendrix

- OLD Metallica

- Cypress Hill (Hit from the bong...)

- Alice in Chains Unplugged

- Sex Pistols

- Nirvana

- Static X

- Stone Temple Pilots

That stuff will guarantee property damage.

For when the strippers get there:

- That "Dirty" song by Christina Aguilera. Of course it sucks, but have you seen the video?? Very apropos.

That reminds me of a joke:

Q: "What's the opposite of "No Man's Land"?

A: Christina Aguilera

Going back to the whole Xtina thing, wow, she's such an ugly whore! Who in their right mind even finds that much make-up caked all over her face appealing?? I bet she looks just fine without it.
