I thought that the response would have been better as music is the reason we are in bossiness.
Just goes to prove that the equipment and lighting must more important than the music.

From those people who posted the most common floor fillers are from the 70's and 80's with a couple of 90's.

I have been looking at playlists past and present from my clients and there seems to be a shift in patterns with more 80's and 90's on the lists. We also ask for no plays on cosultations this seems to be no Chart music.
Do you think that the shift in taste has been because of the variety available on iTunes for immediate download instead of buying CD's from the shops.

Anyway here is my list

Michael Jackson - Billy Jean / Don't stop 'till You Get Enough
Abba - Dancing Queen
Wham - Wake Me Up Before You Go Go / I'm Your Man
Queen - Don't Stop Me Now
Scissor Sisters - I Don't Fell Like Dancing

Barry White / My first my last...

Killers / Mr Brightside

Kings of Leon / Sex on fire

B52s / Love shack

Detroit Emeralds / Feel the need in me

Van Morrison / Brown eyed girl

Most Michael Jackson tracks at the moment.

Most of the ones listed above are good for me too.

Given the right crowd I do use a lot of up to date stuff, mostly Lady Ga Ga, Akon, Beyonce, Dizzy Rascal, Pussy cat dolls, Black IPs etc.

With a good party crowd its got to be stuff like...Arrow / Hot hot hot...I have a big blow up limbo pole for that one, Sham Rocks / Tell me ma, Mavericks / Dance the night away and a few more unusual gems but if I told you I'd have to kill you biggrin.gif

Do you think that any of these will end up as classics that will still be played in say 5-10 years time? Just out of interest.
