Prom—A Playlist

As I mentioned previously, I went to prom and I also mentioned that the music was absolutely terrible.  I’ve been waiting, and it seems to be that everyone’s proms are over?  Some of you are already out of school!  I still have a two weeks (not to mention finals), but I’m still counting down the days… and trying my best to study as relentlessly as possible.

Enough about that (am I the only one that always skims past school/exams talk in a post?)—my original train of thought was going in the direction of the terrible music played at prom.  I didn’t elaborate.  It was mostly techno, and it makes me feel like I’m behind but how doth one dance to techno?  How?  My friend and I couldn’t figure it out, so we only danced when a classic party song~ (if you will) came on, which included the Cupid shuffle, Electric Slide and El Payaso del Rodeo for all the Mexicans that knew how to dance it.

Disappointed but hopeful, I composed my dream prom playlist.  I know I wouldn’t sit down.

  1. I'm afraid to say I don't know many of these songs, but I'll be sure to give them a listen! My prom isn't until the 6th of June, and we have to wear full length dresses. And I'm incredibly short. I'm still excited though, and I'm hoping the music is good! Of they play stuff from when I was growing up, or queen, then I'll be happy as larry! :)

  2. I was at a school dance recently, and they unfortunately only played dupstep and techno as well! I was left standing around, unsure of what to do. I feel ya sister. And this playlist is just perfection. If I was ever DJ-ing at a prom, I would play all of these :)

  3. Girl, you have such good taste in music! We need to start discussing good music! And I loved your prom dress, the colour and cut is fantastic! You looked absolutely beautiful! Definitely following ;)

    You had me at Calvin Harris, EOTS and The Cure!

  5. This is fantastic!
    I didn't go to my prom, but I went my junior year, and I remember they played a lot of rap I didn't know and I felt really out of place.
    Then I remember I also went to my junior prom my junior year, with my friends, and we just went for about an hour and then we felt weird so we just drove around for the rest of the night listening to music we liked (what a waste of $60! or however much it cost, I can't remember).
    Siiigggh, reading this post made me nostalgic.
