Music Notes:  A song that did not debut this week but could be hot, especially at Middle Schools is the new Miley Cyrus “Can’t Be Tamed”.  High Schoolers have a built in prejudice for anything Miley because of her Disney Image, but this song is a great dance song.  Some back lash this week on Miley Cyrus because of the YouTube video circulating the web that shows her “grinding” with a 44 year old guy at a party.   I’ll be interested to see how this song sorts out over the last few days of the school year.

I got a lot of great interest and reaction to the Top 30 songs list.  I am planning to make that a permanent feature on this blog, so you can come back week after week for the latest updates.  Your comments, input and yes, even criticism are welcome and encouraged.

Now let’s take a look at some of the songs that are best left at home on prom night. I’ve listed the top 10, but this is by far not a complete list.  There are tons more songs that should not be played to keep the peace with administrators. For a more exhaustive list you can check out the National Do Not Play list at www.SchoolDanceNetwork.com.

1. Rude Boy- Rhihanna    This tops the list because it is the most popular and is easiest to sing along…”Rude Boy can you get it up….is you big enough”  Heard on radio about every 1 1/2 hours.

2.  My Chick Bad -Ludacris

3.  Over- Drake ( a Young Money member and Lil Wayne protege)

4.  Hey Daddy, Daddy’s Home- Usher

5.  Winner- Jamie Fox F/ Justin Timberlake

6.  Roger that-  Young Money    Inspired by Rapper Lil Wayne…this group heads the top ten with 3 entries.  All nasty stuff that should make the faculty freak.  If you add in other Young Money  crony “Drake” that makes almost half the list.

7. Steady Mobbin- Young Money

8.  Not Afraid- Eminem

9.  Lil Freak- Usher

10.  Bedrock- Young Money

To cull out the worst of the worst take a close look at the Rhythmic Top 40 charts at www.allaccess.com.  ( You may have to set up a free account and sign in).  Rhythmic Top 40 is known for playing the edgier, raunchier, rap side of Top 40 and most times it will hit the Rhythmic chart first.

Your additions to the Top 10 are welcome with your comments below.

Schools that are struggling with lyrically appropriate music being played at their school dances can trust this list to be the hottest dance music that is safe to play.  It is compiled weekly for you, so you don’t have to review and screen every song that comes out.  We’ve done it for you.  You can give this list to your DJ with instructions to play only songs from the list and know that you will be safe.  If you want the current list each week automatically delivered to your computer simply subscribe to the RSS feed and bingo….you got it.  I encourage you to pass this along to other administrators and schools in y our district.
