Year end school dances: Top 30 songs that are safe

June 5, 2011 by Ric Hansen

As the school year winds down the final Top 30 Safe Songs list is ready to guide you through, grad parties, end  of school dances, and last minute proms.   We’ve also added some jewels to the DO NOT PLAY List.  I want to thank all of the responsible DJs who have chosen to become members of the School Dance Network…..As I have mentioned before here, and continue to see proof every day….the more you do to align yourself with “clean lyrics” and “appropriate dancing” the more business you will do at schools.  I guarantee it.  You need to stand out as a DJ (or DJ Company) that goes the extra mile to create clean fun dances.  Using our list and being a member of the School Dance Network, with a listing in our Responsible DJ directory is a great way to start.  Once you sign up, your name will be listed as a Responsible DJ on the most used School Administrator site in the country and you can promote your connection with the “Responsible DJ” emblem that I will send for you web site and direct mail.  You can join now and get your campaign launched for the upcoming school year.

Be watching your upcoming issue of Mobile Beat Magazine for the complete TOP 100 songs for back to school, plus the TOP 30 DO NOT PLAY list and the TOP 30 Timeless School Dance Classics.

Meanwhile here is the latest list for your school dances.
