I'm not sure on the theory here, but I love Willow Weep For Me because it has this interesting tension of simultaneously existing in major and minor at the same time. Maybe someone could elaborate.

>We do this from time to time on our boards if there is an event where this is a problem and someone calls us out on it. But if your scene is mostly EC I'm guessing there is no forum. Try propaganda? Make T-shirts that say 'Lindy Whore- will dance with anyone' perhaps? I just kicked off some forums...

A problem with playing songs the regulars like is the regulars will all come out and dance with each other but the new people will all be sitting alone. Quite a dilemma here. Have you thought of adding extra things to the evening, like snowball dances (I found this VERY helpful one time in another ...

I am so sick of Wade in the Water!!!!! I haven't even put it in my music collection. EVERYONE has it. I don't care if someone requests it from me, someone else will play it anyway. :) (I love the song, I just don't want to hear it for a few years.....like that's possible!) I think if you play good m...

Looks like the shipping is 9 euro or about $16 US. I'm going to see if my local music store can get it for me for less than $30. actually YOU can get it for less than $30 9 euro is not $16, it's about $11.50 I looked at FNAC today and the G-SWING cd was 19 euros, or $24.35, so probably not worth it...

Opening of Mahler No. 5. Give him 4 minutes, and you'll be feeling in love, depressed, and ready to go to war. It's an emotional roller coaster. :)

But in the jazz department- Ella Fitzgerald's open improv solos, like on Oh Lady Be Good.

My alarm clock went off this morning to the sounds of 'cement mixer' It was a good day, right from the start! :) I might be able to pick up a few copies before I come home for Christmas. I suppose some paypal and mediamail arrangements could be made...I'll check what the price is in the record store...
