Oh Valentine’s Day… how I have such mixed feelings about you! You’re an excuse to spend money on someone to demonstrate a committment to that person. You’re a “singles awareness” day that depresses those who aren’t in relationships. You’re every woman’s favorite faux holiday (FLOWERS PLEASE?!) and every man’s worst nightmare of feeling pressured to “perform” (I’ll let you fill in what you think that means) 🙂 So whatever Valentine’s Day means to you, whether you are single or with someone, why not make it a day to just celebrate “LOVE.” Love of life, love of your relationships (yes friends are included), and love of yourself.
Facebook’s analytics team looked thru Spotify data and determined that top songs for couples entering into relationships and the top songs post breakup. How appropriate for Valentine’s Day! Take a look!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or not ~ spread the love today! This mix of music is a melting pot of quasi-love songs…slow, sensual, sappy, & some for sexy time 🙂 Here we go…
It was a Valentine’s party to remember. For all those couples and singles that attended the Valentine’s Eve Mansion Ball in Bel Air on Saturday night, the evening was filled with lots of love and might I add… music and dancing. From sipping champagne in the main house, guests were then lead to a beautifully lit Valentine’s themed courtyard. They were then directed into a decadent, red-infused ballroom with a giant checkered dancefloor and stage.
As guests entered the lavish room complete with roped off VIP areas and a fully stocked open bar, Florence and the Machine’s “You’ve Got the Love” and Shwayze’s “Heart and Soul” warmly greeted the crowd. My dj setup was located directly beneath a cozy arch, where I was constantly joined by as what I like to call: DJ D’Lish’s favorite groupies (Definitely had some additions that nite)
As the night progressed, I played a variety of genres…lots of new Timbaland remixes, David Guetta, Pitbull, Jay-Z, Black Eyed Peas, Ke$sha, Bob Sinclar, and of course the fabulous Lady Gaga. Coordinating the playlist for this event was somewhat challenging as I wanted to include a little something for everyone. To my surprise, a majority of people repeatedly came up to the DJ booth to request House and Electronica songs and and artists, which of course made me very happy!
As the crowd started winding down at a very EARLY 2:30 am, they danced to Young Money’s Bedrock and Drake’s Best I ever Had. To end the night (and to get home at a decent hour) I closed with some of my personal favorite classic love songs: Unchained Melody and Fool’s Rush In. Definitely brought back memories of high school slow dancing!
