I have admittedly varied musical tastes, but I can tell you what I like. I think it’s pretty representative of the masses. I went to Velvet Nation last weekend and this is what I heard (keep in mind, they have three dance floors on seperate sides of the building, so it gets crazy):
JayZ - “Give it to Me”
Anything by Ludikrous - “What’s Your Fantasy” stands out.
Shaggy - “It Wasn’t Me”
Mystikal - “Danger”
As for electronica, Alice Deejay is really hot at the clubs I go to. Fatboy Slim’s every present, but Moby gets requested more. That new song with Moby and Gwen Stefani played like four times in five hours.
Indie rock -Some cool college kids got me hooked on Ben Harper, Cowboy Junkies, and Joni Mitchell. No really! Last party I went to was filled with hippy-dreadlocked types, and we listened to that, and some Emmylou Harris, Boy Marley, and Jimi Hendrix.
Gotta give mad props to David Gray too - I’m taking bets that he’s going to be famous.
The only parties I’ve attended where *NSYNC was allowed were held by my best friend, who is gay, and most of the people there were gay too. Elsewhere, people suggesting such nonsense are strung up and slowly roasted over a roaring campfire.
So, seriousart, were you in school when, like, Hootie was popular?!?
