DEAD FRIDAYS: WEDDING SMASHERS

This weeks addition is going to be a very different DEAD FRIDAY. Last weekend, I DJed my brother’s wedding. He selected all of the music for the evening, and I gotta say, he did a pretty fantastic job. He compiled a massive play list of the best POP songs ever, with a tonne of variety, and a little something for every taste. I thought I should post some of the tunes, on his list, by Dead Kid artists. All of the following songs can be found elsewhere on the blog, in REMIX form, but a wedding is one of the few occasions where you really just want to rock out to the originals, so today, we’re going OLDSCHOOL.

 

C+C MUSIC FACTORY – GONNA MAKE YOU SWEAT (EVERYBODY DANCE NOW)

When I first started collecting vinyl, I wanted this song more than anything else. I figured, back then, that if I ever found a 12″ of it, I would be able to call my collection complete, and stop adding to it. Today, I could easily find it online and order myself a copy, but I’ve stuck with my original decision. The day I own this song on wax is the day that my record collecting is over. Ofcourse, there’s nothing wrong with owning it in digital form, right?

At a wedding, you might wanna consider playing the radio version of this song. My brother didn’t give a fuck. I love that about him. He had me drop this one, ripped off of my very own VINYL copy. Don’t chu know I’m locooooo?!

DEV FT. THE CATARACS – BASS DOWN LOW

The only song, on this wedding jam addition of Dead Fridays, that is less than a decade old. Most modern music holds no longevity, but I think this song is a future classic, that will be pumped at weddings for many years to come.

HOUSE OF PAIN – JUMP AROUND

They have ultimately been left of the canen of HIP-HOP legends, because, at the time of this song’s release, the RAP community was against the idea of another white, chart topping group. What can I say, race politics were a big issue in The Nineties. Regardless, this track is one of the greatest Rap records ever, and it still gets your unk drunkle bouncing on the floor, today. This is a VINYL RIP of my own copy. Now, get out cha seat and…

MADONNA – VOGUE

You can’t have a wedding without something from The Queen Of Pop, and even your feeble, old, great grandmother can strike a pose. This song will be a wedding classic forever. This particular version is ripped from my VINYL copy of THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION. Serious, yall!

There are plenty more songs I could have picked out to feature. I might have to do this again, on another Friday.
