I know this has been talked about over and over, but lately I have been playing more upbeat/mid tempo dinner and cocktail songs.

So what I would like is to have people add just like 3 songs that are upbeat that you play during dinner and or cocktails.

Mine

Cantaloop - US3
Mas Que Nada - Black Eyed Peas
B-52s - Follow Your Bliss
Desperation Samba - Jimmy Buffet

Man, this is such a hard habit for me to break. I need to begin doing this. I am finding that bringing the mood up in a progression is the right thing to do. Do I do it, not all the time. I do to play cantaloop. I play Luther Vandross - Power of love, if that counts.

In all fairness Steve, I said "like 3" and I gave 4! LOL :rofl:

but I gave four because as the starter for the thread, I figured I should be 1% better! LOL :rofl:

But some of these ideas have reminded me of some other ones I have played.

Wild Night - Van Morrison
Baby Got Back - Richard Cheese
Better Together - Jack Johnson

I'll stop at 3! LOL :rofl:

Oh and Toto are really pushing the envelope.
Maybe not, but for some reason, "Africa" never dies. College kids love it as much as fortysomethings, and nobody ever gets tired of hearing it.

Meanwhile, "Power Of Love/Love Power" has bored me to tears since 1991. While it was Luther Vandross' biggest pop hit, it doesn't hold a candle to his earlier stuff and sounds sort of dated. In short, it's "Lite" Luther. At my events, this would go over about as well as any of the Michael Bolton songs from the same era.

Guess it's just not for me.
