Suck it Up and Add “Thriller” to Your Playlist
Raise your hand if you’ve been to a party where the host played their favorite artist — and only their favorite artist — all night long. DJ and producer Brendan Fallis, who’s regularly tasked with spinning songs for some of the biggest parties in the world, recommends that you keep the classics in rotation, but don’t be afraid to take requests.
“If you’re hosting, you probably know your invite list pretty well, so curate the mix to them,” Fallis said. “But my number one tip would be to not just play what you think is good, because more often than not, not everyone wants to hear only what you want to hear.”
That said, “Thriller,” “Monster Mash,” and “Ghostbusters” should probably make playlist appearances throughout the night to avoid disappointing your guests. It’s like dancing the Electric Slide at a wedding. You just have to do it.
