For me, it’s all about the atmosphere of the area where they are dancing. My apartment is tiny, and I usually allow my friends to take control of the music.
Personally, I love quirky oldies that make me cut the rug. What A Way To Die by The Pleasure Seekers is the perfect place to start a playlist.
Or, you can go complete 80’s and put on some Bowie, Hall and Oates and Michael Jackson. PYT is a guarantee to get me singing. Then there is the great way to get a room of free spirits to dance, which is disco music. It always works.
Or, to start the build up go a little more recent with ‘Dance yrself Clean’ by LCD Soundsystem. Slow but the climax is amazing.
