1940s Song Recommendations

What are your favorite dance tunes from the 1940s? I'll be djing at the SFBalfest, and the theme of the night is "Back to 40s Stars and Stripes." In particular, I'm going to DJ a competition, so I'd love to listen to your suggestions. For more info on the event, check out: http://www.balboabattle.co...

Speaking of Ray Charles, how about "Shake your Tailfeather"?

I can't believe I forgot Kool & the Gang. I have to get that!

You know one reason I love lindy in the park? People there have a very liberal definition of "danceable." These are great suggestions. I love the Ruth Brown suggestion - that also reminded me of the one great blues song from the musical Harlem Song, "No Sale." Any hints where I might find the Ray Ch...

Booty Call

Yes, I know. It's tacky, it's terrible. But I've promised a set of last songs to celebrate the booty, the ass, the tuckus, the rump. So I'm looking for great butt songs. Please note, this all started when a "friend" brought the CD Monster Booty to Litp. This means, so far, I have: Wiggle It Da Booty...

Where have you heard a lot of dead air around here? Oh Jeff, not at your place! I really enjoy your djing. Truly, I work under some unique conditions at LITP. First, it's an outdoor event. Anybody walking through the park on a Sunday can walk right up to us, and they often do. Since they don't know...

Pet peeve: Dead air. One reason I became a dj is that I couldn't stand waiting while the dj picked the next song, cued it, and got it to play. It could take a few minutes, with people standing around waiting. On the flip side, I think I come across as a cranky dj. When people come up to me and start...

DJing & Cueing on a Mac

Help! Bowing to the pressure around me, and tired of lugging my cds everywhere, I purchased a 12" Mac Powerbook for djing. I've been loading my music into iTunes, and using the little BPM counter recommended here. I'd like to know preferred methods for cueing vs djing on a Mac. Please keep in mind, ...
