Compiling Your Family Reunion Music List.
Finding the right music for your family reunion event can be an all day
or all week project. While each family member may have varied taste in
music choose songs most find acceptable. Select titles full of
sentiment and nostalgia. That said it's usually best to play tunes that
have been pre-selected instead of piping in directly from a radio
Many self-made DJ's are well armed with an arsenal of music titles.
Still they may not have most of what your family prefers.
Solution: Start fresh. First make up a list of songs the whole family
will enjoy. Fast and slow, meaningful and fun. Mix a few seasonal songs
in as well. A list of 40 to 50 songs should carry through 2 or more
hours. Include instrumental versions of some of the same original
artist titles and mix them up.
Remember most of the family will want to dance most of the time. Throw
in something for everyone from the 50's to the 2000's. Avoid music
could offend a group of listeners. Take the time to carefully read
lyrics of suggested songs your not familiar with and consider the
artist, beat, pulse and atmosphere the song creates.
Once your list is complete it's time to start considering how best to
locate the media and transfer your song titles to a single media
storage unit for playback.
This use to be done by flipping through your families collection of
CD's. Once you collected all the CD's you would start making a master
song title CD. Transferring songs from CD to Computer to CD can be a
time consuming task. Now there is a much simpler approach. Simply go
online and pull song titles from MP3 websites. Store the song on your
computer or MP3 player or scandisk and plug the media storage unit into
a studio sound player.
We suggest you consider compiling your music list in MP3 format.
