Back when I had a horrible collection (as opposed to the relatively acceptable one I have now), I spun once while really loaded. While not a total nightmare, it was bad enough that I won't have more than a few drinks before a shift.

In my experience, more dancers will come out for a vocal number, but their actual comprehension of the vocal is minimal. It's unimportant when compared to good song v. bad song.

Reuben supposedly hates Glenn Miller. Does he keep taking his book as a challenge or as penance?
