    Default Blacklisted Dance Songs

    I was listening to DJAM and Travis Barkers mixtape from Coachella called "Fix Your Face vol. 2" and DJAM played a couple songs that I could've sworn were, at this point, almost faux paux to play. This led me to the forum to ask:

    What songs can you just not play anymore?

    I have a couple:
    Kid Cudi - Day N Nite (Crookers Remix)
    MGMT - Kids (Soulwax Remix)
    Deadmau5 - Ghosts n Stuff
    Darude - Sandstorm (but who would, honestly)
    Fedde La Grand - Put Your Hands Up For Detroit

    Please add but I feel like these are songs that are currently in the category of "played out"

    agree? disagree? voice it.

    In Finland Kids soulwax remix is absolutely viable. Hot stuff

    I agree, but this is the problem DJ's have had for a loooooooong time. If I got to play only the songs I wanted, it would be a rough night, as most only boogie to what they already know.
    If people were dancing to the songs, then it's all good....as it's up to the crowd.
    But I agree...there are soo many songs that I am tired of. Most times, I'm done with them before they even become "mainstream". I feel like I've had Kid Cudi for almost 2yrs now.....

    You got the most important ones I guess but c'mon Sandstorm is too old for the list.

    I would add:
    Fake Blood - Mars
    Proxy - Dance In The Dark
    Deadmau5 - The Reward Is (More) Cheese
    Tiga - The Future Mindimension
    any kind of Operation Blade remix

    All depends on how and when you bring in the song..

    I think you guys should all do edits or remixes of these songs for your DJ sets and quit whining damn it ! LOL Seriously though I feel like sometimes it pays to find a way to embrace the cheese

    +1 to that. There is a reason why these songs get played out. Its cause the crowd, not the hardcore party kids atleast, WANT to hear these songs. If you can find a great way to bring it in, then you can even please the hardcore clubbers.
