No Cheesy Party Tunes - The Answer To Cheese Featured

This is a topic where we need to bite our tongue and take the PR skills up a level. Party cheese is a very subjective area and another man’s cheese is another man’s anthem.

Where do you even start to define party cheese and where does it come from?

We have mulled this over a few times and you must first accept that every century has had its take on cheese but the whole core of this article is timeless. Party cheese does not exist period! It is people’s perceptions of a particular tune and most likely their exposure to it.

You get the obviously, over marketed, in your face summer anthem which everybody bobs along to in a line but does that make the "Can Can” a cheesy party dance all those years ago? We had a recent request list specifically asking to omit “The Killers – Mr Brightside” as it was considered too cheesy !

Party Cheese ... what Is it ?

Our system group’s popular songs and we will admit to having a directory called “Popular Group Dance” which many will refer to as a Party Cheese List. But referring back to the Killer’s incident music is very subjective. Cheese does not exist as a genre it is where your head is at with music.

No Party Cheese Please

  • DJ Casper - Cha Cha Slide
  • Gap Band - Oops Upside Your Head
  • Las Ketchup - The Ketchup Song (English)
  • Los Del Ma - The Macarena
  • Mud - Tiger Feet
  • Peter Kay ft Tony Christie - Is This The Way To Amarillo
  • Village People    YMCA
  • Whigfield     Saturday Night

To the point ...

If you ask your DJ to play no cheese. When he asks you which ones do not use the following:

  • You know the one
  • It goes like
  • Lah de Dah de doh
  • It was a few years ago
  • It’s got the blonde girl in the band
  • Where you all get in a line

I think you know where we are coming from.

Going a bit deeper and digging a hole ...

As DJs we see a huge amount of playlists and it is quite scary when you analyse them you begin to see a social demographic and the results are quite scary.

Without digging ourselves too big a hole it is very apparent the talent shows are affecting specific social demographics and they have lost the will to think for themselves.

Probably a good place to stop ……
