Thanks people, good stuff... lots of those familiar song names on the list, great to see who's actually singing/playing them.

Keep it coming!
I'll owe you my non-existent DJ life :)

(yes, I tried for the first time last week, and it definitely wasn't very successful. Will keep trying.)

in a sense, yes, i'm looking for overplayed stuff. But the good stuff, that was overplayed with good reason. I'm looking for the classics, ones you might STILL pull out even though you've been using them for years. There are a good bunch of song which I mostly hear at exchanges, that area as comfort...

Call & Response

Aright, I'm not a music geek, or a collector, so i was hoping some of you knowledgeable types could help me out. I teach lindy, and want to work on call & response patterns between partners. So, I'm looking for good songs with call and response that is clear and fun to dance. Ideas? (please give...
