Party Preparation

The most difficult bit so far has been compiling a list of must have songs for the DJ.

This is a difficult list to make, cos it’s not about showing your cool credentials, it’s about thinking what I’m likely to want to dance to when three sheets to the wind, what my friends and family are likely to want to dance to, and what songs mean something to friends and family.

(And with that explanation, I’ve just realised I’ve left a crucial one off.)

Anyway – the list I’ve just sent looks like this:

  • Teenage Kicks – The Undertones
  • Le Freak – Chic
  • Build Me Up Buttercup – Foundations
  • Because the Night – Patti Smith
  • Disco Inferno – Trammps
  • You Can’t Hurry Love – Phil Collins
  • Dancing Queen – ABBA
  • Crazy in Love – Byonce feat. Jay-Z
  • Hanging on the Telephone – Blondie
  • Brand New Cadillac – The Clash
  • Double Barrell – Dave & Ansell Collins
  • You Can Get it if You Really Want – Desmond Dekker
  • Come On Eileen – Dexy’s Mignight Runners ( for my Nan, Eileen!)
  • Mercy – Duffy
  • Henrietta – The Fratellis
  • Standing in the Way of Control – The Gossip
  • Town Called Malice – The Jam
  • Golden Skans – The Kaxons
  • Rock & Roll – Led Zepplin
  • Once & Never Again – The Long Blondes
  • Ooo Wee – Mark Ronson
  • Valerie – Mark Ronson
  • Pure Pleasure Seeker – Moloko
  • Cigarettes & Alcohol – Oasis
  • The Importance of Being Idle – Oasis
  • Shake – Otis Reading
  • Rocks Off – The Rolling Stones
  • I Don’t Feel Like Dancing – Scissor Sisters
  • Hey Little Rich Girl – The Specials
  • Alright – Supergrass
  • Let’s Dance to Joy Division – The Wombats
