Got married just last year and can confirm you've all got the right idea here: Play songs most people would actually dance to, and save yr deep cuts for cocktail hour or the very end after the normies and olds have called it a night. Clever playlists can go very, very bad. Example: Right after the couple's first dance at my wife's cousin's wedding, the DJ played "Can't Hurry Love" by the Supremes and segued into "We Found Love" by Rihanna. GET IT?! Knowing 1) the night was young and therefore peak baby boomer dancing time, 2) "We Found Love" is way too recent/clubby for baby boomers to dance to, and 3) it has a long-ass intro before the beat drop, I whispered to my wife, "The DJ just lost the dancefloor. Watch: Everyone over 40 is gonna look confused and then sit down, the dancefloor will fall below critical mass, and no more than 6 people at a time will be on the floor for the rest of the night." And that's exactly what happened. Congrats to everyone who has gotten/is getting married!

Keane had at least one monster hook per album. "Somewhere Only We Know", "Is It Any Wonder?", and "Spiralling" were the only reasons I bought those three albums.

1) Great post, Julia. 2) Is there a GIF of that girl's face at 1:06? If not, there needs to be. 3) My guy misses the dunk at 3:08.

If you buy something planning to keep/enjoy it yourself then later decide to sell it, I'm cool with that. If you buy something solely to flip it for a profit, you can go to Hell.
