#603 When the DJ plays your request

Suddenly you’re a VIP.

Yes, the dance party turns into a private rockout in your messy apartment as you jump on the floor, nod at the DJ, and start bringing down the house with your superfly moves.

Cristal for everybody!

AWESOME!

  1. It’s even better when they lead up to it with a personalized introduction, getting your name flung across the radiowaves.

    That usually only works out for local stations, though.

  2. As a DJ, one of the greatest things is to actually get requests. It’s so great when someone calls in or walks up to you to ask for a song they love and you have it in your collection.

    AWESOME

  3. When I was a kid, it was a big deal to get your request for a music video played on our city’s after school music video show. Competition was tough and viewers had to send in art work to get their request noticed. When my INXS request for ‘Don’t Change’ was selected and my name was announced on live TV, I was beyond thrilled! Yes, this ‘thing’ is one of the best. ever!

  4. I love when you ask the DJ to ” shout out” for your friend. Everyone goes wild. Recently, in Vegas we had a friend who bailed last minute and we got the DJ to give him a “shout out” anyway – him not being there was so hysterical to us. I highly reccomend the absent “shout out”.

  5. I have so many recollections of school dances and the DJ never playing anything I asked for. Aside from the ONE time we found our popular acquaintance and he got a song played for us. So I imagine that this would be awesome.

      1. ah we were always the kids with “weird” taste in music, so the DJ had either not heard of what we wanted to hear or didn’t have it.

  6. I found that my musical preferences makes most people cringe when they hear me describe what I like. However if they have the chance to here it, they are quickly converted and begin bowing down to my superb taste and begin begging me for more suggestions. I ended up just making a site for them to honor the greatest music on earth bow down to http://tastym.blogspot.com/ and know you’ve been tasted

  7. my mum did this to me at a rsl and it was totally awesome and i also did it for crocodile rock at a party

  8. I called up a radio station to ask a question about a funny song they played. The DJ and I ended up talking for over an hour, he had to put me on hold while he made announcements and identified songs… He told funny jokes to me and played five of my favorite songs (nothing wrong with having more than one favorite is there?) in a row. What a nice guy.

    And once my best friend and I went to a free concert at the local casino for a country singer that was a one hit wonder. Amazing voice though. I requested a song of his that made the radio but didn’t get much play… Anyway he said “This one’s for Amy!” Made me happy!

  9. This IS awesome. But doesn’t always happen in a club at a large city. Some of them try to make a “statement” with their music choices. I once dated a DJ and he said, “I get so tired of the top 40. Every week, people request the same thing.”

    Yeah…. but if they like it, they dance. And quite frankly, if no one is dancing, you’re not really doing your job….

  10. It is cool when the dj plays what you want him to play. If everybody dance with that song, it give you a feeling of ‘power’. It also says that you have a great taste in music when so many people dance with you! :)
    But is stinks when people keep asking for the same songs over and over again. It is not creative anymore, and you don’t discover new songs.

  12. It is an awesome thing. Because when the DJ is playing other songs, you have to compromise with your dance moves. Suddenly, the tables have turned. And since you’re the only one anticipating that song, you’ve got some awesome dance moves ready to fire off.

  13. Totally!! What is better that having your favorite tunes blasting through the speakers and showing off your dance moves?? Nothing!! AWESOME!!!

  14. “You know, it makes me want to SHOUT, pick up my heels up and SHOUT, throw my hands up and SHOUT…ay-ay-ay-oh!”

  15. Iˇ¦ve recently started a blog, the info you offer on this site has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work.
