Hang the DJ!

I wasn't panicking, I was freaking out. I dunno why I said yes but now it's too late to change my mind. Deejaying on very commercial queer party it is. My first, my last but most certainly not my everything.

Playing commercial music? Hell will freeze over before I'll ever play any of Timberlake, Spears, Lopez, Simpson or look a likes. The playlist is prepared and full of 60's - 80's candies. I will survive - collateral ego damage included. I guess, it's a Chain reaction.

Thanks Sladka for reminding me of The Smiths - it's keeping me sane past few days and Maabee for yesterdays session.

The Smiths - Panic:

Panic on the streets of London
Panic on the streets of Birmingham
I wonder to myself
Could life ever be sane again ?
The Leeds side-streets that you slip down
I wonder to myself
Hopes may rise on the Grasmere
But Honey Pie, you're not safe here
So you run down
To the safety of the town
But there's Panic on the streets of Carlisle
Dublin, Dundee, Humberside
I wonder to myself

Burn down the disco
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
IT SAYS NOTHING TO ME ABOUT MY LIFE
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music they constantly play


On the Leeds side-streets that you slip down
Provincial towns you jog 'round
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
HANG THE DJ, HANG THE DJ
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
HANG THE DJ

Hell yeah! Just don't panic; DJ's have an important educating role as well.
And people respect that as long as they really respect music too.
If they don't - it's the "E" or the "white C" or the "C2H5OH" or all together talking ...
When you play, show that you're having fun - it somehow stops people from thinking of bugging you for requests ...
I'm sure you'll rock!
;m)

Baby, baby, Ive been so sad since youve been gone
Way back to New York City
Where you do belong
Honey, I missed your two-tone kisses
Legs wrapped around me tight
If I ever get back to fun city, girl
Im gonna make you scream all night

Honey, honey, call me on the telephone
I know youre movin' out to hollywood
With your can of tasty foam
All those beat up friends of mine
Got to get you in their books
And lead guitars and movie stars
Get their tongues beneath your hood

Yeah! youre a star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star
Yeah, a star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star
A star fucker, star fucker, star fucker, star fucker star
