I keep most of my originals in these: http://www.thejungles.com/oakvencdrac11.html The shelves go from floor to about 5 feet up and the shelves and the CDs look great. Of course I rip all the songs I'll DJ with to my computer and make compilations, so I never bring the originals anywhere. I've never...

I don't like that I have to hit "more" and select tabs to get information that used to just come up.

It looks like you have some quality selections on there, Patrik. I'm intrigued by the other songs and bands I've never heard of.

And "A-You're Adorable" by Lithgow/Bill Elliott Orch.

It's a children's swing song, so it's appropriate.

Songs for Pregnant Lindyhoppers

I want to have a jam for a couple of people that are pregnant. I was thinking of "Tea for Two" by Ella. Besides being about "two" it also has a line, if I remember right, "we will raise a family, a boy for you and girl for me..." And maybe a song with "baby" in it, but they aren't really about a bab...

I got pretty sick of "Waddaya Want" very quickly and its been on my do-not-play list for a long time. However, it has a catchy tune, it has lyrics people love to sing along to, it has fun breaks, and it has energy. A lot of dancers love it.

I now come at it from the point of view that it is wrong to trade music. And have tried to discourage it. (btb, i dont mean to pick on your post in particular, sorry) i dont think anyone would not want the artist to get their royalties. they work hard, and dont really get paid that much. that said....

Yes, but like Indigo Swing, Jellyroll, Mighty Blue Kings, and a very few other bands, they weren't so "neo" as to be obnoxious, in my opinion, and they actually wrote good original music. Good. Original. Music.

It is an excellent song. As is the rest of the CD. It's too bad they they didn't continue to write and release new songs and CDs like that.
