The Top 60 Dance Tracks A Mobile Disc Jockey Must Have


Recommended Posts

I was writing another post tonight and realised that although we have a 'Playlist' section we havent fine tuned it to the hardcore tracks that every MDJ must have.

 

You never know someone might want to compile the DJU Top 60!!

 

If the hardcore dance section of an evening say lasts 3 hours, then 60 tracks should just about do it.

 

If we can construct this together it could preempt quite a few requests as to what we recommend an MDJ starting out should get.

 

If you post your MUST HAVEs on here, we can update it into one list.

 

I realise that there will always be the latest dance track to buy, but maybe we could pull together 60 timeless tracks. If we end up with more, we can always have a vote to cut back to the 60.

 

I'll start the ball rolling with a few (In no particular order):

 

1. Dancing Queen - Abba

2. Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

3. I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

4. The One And Only - Chesney Hawkes

5. U Cant Touch This - MC Hammer

6. Dance The Night Away - The Mavericks

7. Chelsea Dagger - The Fratellis

8. Place Your Hands - Reef

9. Can't Get You Out Of My Head - Kylie Minogue

10.Show Me Love (Stonebridge Club Mix) - Robin S.

 

I have loads more but over to you

Gary,

 

For now I'm listing anything that is posted. I'm not currently drowning in suggestions.

 

Hopefully at some point we will pass the 60, thenI can prune it back to 60. That should be an interesting debate too!

 

Why not tell me what you think is missing off this list and I'll add them

Maybe this should have been the TOP 100 :D

 

 

yep agree with that top 100 sounds better

 

there will always be tunes recommended that are of now ie the journey one, it is massive because of the x factor and family guy but these will die down but that is not to say that these don't merit the top 100 .

The songs i recommended are ones that several people would say ..you havent got ... in total amazement when i first started djing.

 

Im in the mood for dancing... what function dj hasn't got that? or i wanna dance with somebody ..we may not like them but thats what aunty wants
