OK, girlfriends (and boys, if you are out there and so inclined), help me out here...
I'm compiling a list of dancy, clubby tunes to DL off iTunes and grab off my own iTunes playlist to make a mix of my favorite dance-pop-type love songs, like the above-mentioned "Can't Get You Outta My Head" by Kylie Minogue and "I Turn to You" by Melanie C. (yes, of Spice Girls fame, but her solo music is amazingly good - and diverse). Madonna, too, like "Beautiful Stranger" and her later, more modern-sounding stuff so it fits in here.
HOWEVER, there is a caveat - anyone who mentions Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey will be bound and gagged and cast into the depths of eHell, and I don't care if Mariah and I share the same birthday, as was pointed out to me several years ago (she's five years older than me).
Trance, dance-pop, house, R & B, whatever the sound, chuck your suggestions at me - but the tunes must be DANCEABLE and must be CLUBBY, not that sappy, slow-dancing dreck, but high-energy, bouncy, trancy or just plain cool. I'm looking through my collection right now because I know I have some good ones, but the NyQuil may take effect before I'm done searching.
Even bubblegum Europop such as the A*Teens (oooh! That gave me a good one! "Upside Down") will be acceptable, so long as it is danceable (and most Europop is, so I'm not scared of that). Europop from years past, like Roxette or a-Ha or Ace of Base is also acceptable (how scary is it that I know this much Europop? I'm not sure). Erasure, Pet Shop Boys - all acceptable. Britney Spears - not acceptable. Paris Hilton - NOT ACCEPTABLE. I'm afraid my iTunes would catch some kind of virus from her. Jessica Simpson - definitely not acceptable. Ashlee Simpson - also not acceptable.
And no mush, dreck and/or sap. :p This is a very special iTunes mix, for a very special purpose - ie, getting me up and going in the mornings - and also for listening to in the car whenever I'm with Paul. Yeah, yeah, I'm a right minx, go ahead and say it. :p I'm calling it my GirliTunes mix, so he can't figure out what I'm up to. :p
