Top Ten Things you should NEVER say to a DJ (as written by Darren)

Before requesting songs, making comments, or asking questions of the DJ, please read the following...

1. PLAY SOMETHING GOOD...SOMETHING WE CAN DANCE TO!

The DJ has to play for more than one person...so what you hate may be another's favorite song and EVERYTHING played here can be danced to one way or another.

2. WOULD YOU PLAY SOMETHING WITH A 'BEAT'!

Be serious! We know of NO songs played in a club that don't have some sort of BEAT!

3. I DON'T KNOW WHO SINGS IT AND I DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF THE SONG, BUT IT GOES LIKE THIS.....

PLEASE DON'T SING for the DJ. They have to put up with smoke filled rooms and dangerous decibel levels all night long...DO them a favor and DON'T give them a rendition of your favorite song...and if you loved the song that much, you'd already know the name of it!

4. EVERYBODY WANTS TO HEAR IT!

Oh, sure ... you polled everyone in the club and, as their spokesperson, you're requesting the song.

5. EVERYBODY WILL DANCE IF YOU PLAY IT…

I paused for a moment.  “That’s cool.  Not really my scene, but to each his own.  We should go hang some time and have a drink and catch up.”  He shook his head, “I can’t do it.  I can’t hang out with you anymore.  I told you…I’ve been saved.”  I had a confused look on my face.  “Yeah, but what’s that have to do with you and I hanging out?”  He smiled and said, “I can’t hang out with you anymore man because you’re evil.  They talk about people like you at church”.  I laughed because I thought h…
