Best Dance Party Worthy of Mordor...(the Heralding)

This Saturday, Nov. Uno, Emily is hosting a Day of the Dead/All Saint's Day Dance Party at her apartment (the way I see it, this is her annual big Summer party, she was just away every single weekend until now).

I've been given the honor of being asked to "DJ" (put songs in order on my laptop) the party. I am taking this task seriously and all I want is to give you a good time...I can't promise I'll always be playing your favorite song, but I can promise to play danceable songs handpicked for their party-moving potential...whether or not the party moves, that's up to you.

So far we're looking at a playlist full of hip hop, britpop, doo whop, garage rock, disco, electro, house, funk, r&b, soul, ska, calypso, cumbia, baile funk, classic rave, new rave, new wave, no wave, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, top 40, stuff you've never heard, stuff you know all the words to, monster ballads, slow jams, buttrock, boy bands, girl groups, hipster stuff, stake dance favorites, and reggaeton.

And if the moment is ever right, Raining Blood.

So come out to Emily's on Saturday night at's the night the clocks change, so there's no reason to be staying home. And if you don't know where Emily lives, contact me and I'll tell you...I can't just be putting addresses on the internet, right?

Oh, and Emily says wear black. Or black and white.

Oh, and also, song suggestions and requests are welcome and encouraged. I just want everyone to be happy.

I have three very simple song requests.

First, "Gump" by Weird Al Yankovic.

Second, "Have I the Right" by the Honeycombs.

And third, "Burning Love" by Elvis Presley.
