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.

    Say Ah is about taking shots…i.e. Liquor shots….I would NOT play this for under-agers.

    • Drinking songs are yet another issue….and you have a great point. Honestly the line can change from school to school depending on the administration. This is not an exact science here, it will alway get down to the judgment of the DJ based on his input from the client and his own best judgement. With this list I hope to provide some guidelines and guidance…knowing that when it gets right down to it you must make the call.

      I figure there have been songs with liquor references dating back to Dean Martin and the boys, that have been played for all audiences. You are absolutely right though…there are those who would violently object to it. That’s when you gotta go with the gut!

      Careful on Tic Tok as well. mentions Patron and other specific liquors and mention getting Tiiipsy. Great tune though! Thanks for the list Ric

      • Teen drinking is a huge issue. I may need to think about a tighter screen on songs with drinking as we move ahead. Thanks for the input. I’d love to hear comments from administrators on this issue to get a better feel.
