School Dance Safe Songs “Top 30” 11/8/10

November 8, 2010 by Ric Hansen

Katy Perry has her timing down. Just when one song drops off the chart another is right behind it. Goodbye “California Gurls, Hello “Firework”. Tao Cruz’s “Dirty Picture” took off big on radio, but sales have not supported the airplay and the song is not getting much traction. Could be the last week. In the world of “DO NOT PLAY” you can almost count on anything with 50 Cent involved is going to be over the top…that’s the case with Jeremih’s single featuring 50 cent….”Down on me”. Guess what that one is about. Another song to avoid at schools is “Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa….just released and getting airplay, but loaded with the N word and a sprinkling of the “F” bomb. Set it aside for your night club gigs. Keep an eye out for interest in a new “Black Eyed Pea’s single: “The Time”! Great Music out there….go have fun.  ( If you are a responsible DJ committed to creating fun, high energy, yet appropriate school dances check out the School Dance Network web site.  To learn how to be a member click here.
