I gotta make a Playlist for a Family Reunion on Saturday. Not "gotta" in the sense that I'm being forced to, rather, it is better for me all around to control the tunes. I'm bringing the P.A. anyway but I won't get to control the tunes if I abuse the privelige, so I'm asking for recommendations on what New-ish tunes the nephews and nieces will like, while still being interesting enough so I won't suffer inordinately.
I'll still get some FZ and other personal favs in the mix, and I draw the line at Katy Perry bullshit, American Idol, Disney or Nickelodeon sponsored sounds, but if it is somewhat well done, fun, party, upbeat, stuff that I can d/l or better yet, find at the Library, then...
Thanx Manx! :)

I suppose that'd be good for the end of the party. I'll put it right after the old chestnut (before your time) White Person's classic "Guaranteed Party Killer"! :)
Thanx Manx

Sadly? Uh, ok. I know you are not aware of who White Person is (was). Perhaps that made you sad. Don't be. We both have very little idea of the other's sense of humor... yet.
Some Hee Haw is great!

When I think of outdoor summer get togethers this is one of the songs that pops into my mind. I think it will cross the generations just fine. This is something to play after the fifth or tenth upbeat song when you need to slow things down a tad.Let your ears peruse this one.

Summertime Thing by Chuck Phophet

Yes, It is sad that cyber communication safety nets continue to succeed in
distorting genuine kindness via cold letters and hot heads.
Nothing personal of course.

No, that made me curious. But only for a minute or two.
I quickly filed that one under "Private Yuks!" and refilled my coffee cup.

To be expected.

Thanks Plook. For better or worse, much of that seems to be what kidz are listening to.

lm - Perhaps clarity is a goal you would like to achieve? I understand you less with each new post of yours.

No worries Arkay, let your wife know I said hello... :!:

I have been getting readings on the Crapdetector from lm, the three short sentance structure, some of the chaotic thought process, random unconnected stuff...we have seen it in the past, time usually tells... :smoke:

I am not concerned with clarity.
I am more interested in the uncertainty of relativism.
The possibility of possibilities. The infinitesimal spiral of probabilities and the vertigo of doubt
toppling every faux-façade until all that remains is the lifeless clashing of sub-atomic rubble.

Having to listen to new-ish tunes the nephews and nieces will like sounds more like torture for the whole damn family. :twisted:

My son is 17 and he's in a band that plays covers of Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Coldplay, Foster the People, Bastille, Black Keys, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Michael Franti, Imagine Dragons, etc. I don't know if their tastes are typical for that age but that's what they are in to.
