Since we all grew up in the 80’s, we love to play songs like Paul Simon's Late In the Evening, Scandal Goodbye to You, The Greg Kihn Band The Breakup Song, Loverboy Working for the Weekend, The Bangles Hazy Shade of Winter, The Cars You Might Think, Romantics What I Like About You, The Go-Go’s We Got the Beat & Vacation, Billy Squier Everybody Wants You, and The Kinks Come Dancing.

But, when we really want to rock out and dance, we like The Clash Should I Stay or Should I Go, The Dollyrots Because I’m Awesome, John Mellencamp’s ROCK in the USA, Jimmy Eat World The Middle, Pat Benatar All Fired Up, BTO You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, The Spencer Davis Group Gimme Some Lovin’, and Sweet Ballroom Blitz.

For a more mellow mood, we like Sherriff When I’m With You, Cyndi Lauper Time after Time, Coldplay Fix You, Natasha Beddingfield Unwritten, Fleetwood Mac I Don’t Want to Know and Second Hand News, and Brandi Carlile The Story.

And if we want to listen tapping our feet, we like Tom Petty American Girl, ABBA Waterloo and Mamma Mia, Amii Stewart Knock on Wood, Bonnie Tyler Total Eclipse of the Heart, Blues Traveler Run Around, The Beatles Obla Di Obla Da and Got to Get You into My Life, and a splash of country with Dixie Chicks Hole in my Head, and John Denver Thank God I'm A Country Boy.

For today’s music with a touch of youth, we like Muse Uprising, Hot Chelle Rae Tonight, Tonight, Adele Rollin’ in the Deep, Taylor Swift Trouble, Lady Gaga Edge of Glory, Katy Perry Hot N Cold, and Cee Lo Green Forget You, and Oh Honey Be Okay.

Finally, when we are feeling festive for a holiday party, we like Lindsey Buckingham Holiday Road, Bruce Springsteen Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, and a very, very mean rendition of The Grinch.
