Almost strictly #80s #djset yesterday. Fun to air all that stuff out. Some really nice surprises, and I few former sure-things just don’t work anymore. [ #setlist below] #austindj
*Work For Love, #Ministry is a bit of lost classic when you consider the more well known part of their catalog.
*99 Red Balloons — don’t play it in a DJ set. Period; especially if you have the English version.
*Any Police works if you’re outside and it’s sunny.
*Album versions of #daftpunk #GetLucky is great.
*People love #MissingPersons even though they are not immediately recognizable to most.
* #RunningUpthatHill into Big Love was a good idea. Works. Same drum beat. Although, sonically Big Love songs 100x better.
*I bet you could play Everybody Wants to Rule the World 3x in as many hours stink-eye-free.
* Always end with Love Plus One. Always.
