Spin Around off the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack. Our other local DJ likes it.

I haven't seen if this is posted or not, but Blu Cantrell's "Swingin" is pretty fast.
Don't take swing underground!!

:lol: That's what I'm here for!

On a related note, one of our other DJs played Outkast's "Hey Ya" last night at our dance. I've heard it 20 million times already, but never thought about dancing to it. It's fun. I'm peeved that I didn't think of it myself.

This happened to us last Sunday. Many people danced. I enjoyed it a lot because I knew the song very, very well, and could play around with it easily. Perhaps that's why people still enjoy the "overplayed" songs.

Sometimes, I'll request an obscure song that I know very well, such as something by Groove Terminator. It can be fun to lead when the follower is highly skilled but doesn't know the song at all.
