I'm just imagining Mary on a stage, lights swirling around her, headphones pressed against one ear with her left hand, the right hand manipulating the touch pad on her Macbook Pro, a crowded dance floor at her feet. Which is kind of weird since I have no idea what Mary looks like.

Hi Dean! Will check that link out later, thanks!

Justin Timberlake, I actually like. Not aurally offensive, and quite decent. Mind you, I never buy any of his records or play his music, but it good pop music...

Up until now I've only heard versions of Timberlake's get your freak on by Ergo Phizmiz and a Quantic produced cumbia version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm fred:

I vaguely remember a french version of this (j'aime regarder les filles) from the very early '80s or late '70s. Might have been a cover itself, as most mainstream songs were back then

...and Milkshake is part of a plot/character point in Jane the Virgin. But you all knew that.

Hiya Roberto!

A portable CD player or a stereo component?
Avatar 5:22pm Roberto:

Mary Wing shittin' hits!

My friend found a Falco poster in a record in a thrift store, and put it up on his front door. The next day we read he died. He never put another poster on his door again.....
Avatar 5:24pm Bas NL:

Stereo component, but very small! About two CD cases wide and three high! Toshiba. Friend's father was importer for The Netherlands at the time.

Well of course he didn't. He was dead.

I haven't been disco-ed like this since grade school.

I acknowledge no knowledge of the 80s except some sordid episodes with PIL.
Avatar 5:43pm Mary Wing:

Hi WR, well, it's time for some schooling, then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm fred:

@WR: I remember playing Four Enclosed Walls at my 18th birthday party, and being promptly kicked out
Avatar 5:45pm Mary Wing:

Kicked out of your own party? That is harsh!
Avatar 🥁 5:49pm βrian:

The auto-tune always auto kicks me off. [sad face]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm fred:

Well, I shared the birthday with the actual host, so it was fair. I had it coming too, PiL weren't popular, and neither was I
Avatar 5:51pm Sem:

Thx for doing this, Mary. Lot's of fun. See you and all later.
Avatar 5:52pm Mary Wing:

Cheers, Sem!

I once DJ'ed and tried to get people out in the early morning... Playing Einstuerzende Neubauten, followed by Gulio Iglesias... The organizer came over with his box of takings for the night, turned it over on my desk and told me to keep going on.... strange and happy days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Alex In Illinois:

Lene Lovich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm fred:

I got even a couple years later, when I was next given a chance to select a track. I played the first part of Steve Reich's Drumming, and everybody went wild. I still was seen out by the jock squad soon after that stunt, but was allowed to linger outside
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Michael 98145:

Love Lene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Love her voice
Avatar 5:58pm Mary Wing:

Hi there Alex!
Avatar 5:59pm Mary Wing:

Oh my gosh, I think I timed the next track perfectly... fingers crossed that it begins right at the top of the hour.
Avatar 5:59pm Bas NL:

Could we organize a party one day with you at the controls @fred? ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm fred:

@Mary: perfect timing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Michael 98145:

Avatar 6:02pm Mary Wing:

Heh heh heh! You have no idea how long I've wanted to do that on a Friday at 6 pm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm fred:

That could confuse some people about which stream is on
(I love Ladytron)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:03pm chresti:

Thanks Mary!
Avatar 6:03pm Mary Wing:

My aim, exactly. :-)
Avatar 6:04pm Bas NL:

Marc Almond!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ladytron too much like the Shut Up Weirdo robot theme same time on the main stream!...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Ike:

Cool cool cool
Avatar 6:06pm Mary Wing:

Hi RevRab, that is the same song! :-)
Avatar 6:06pm Mary Wing:

Hello Ike! Just get here?
Avatar 6:08pm Bas NL:

Oww! Long version! Never heard that before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...uh huh. Well played.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm xtrakrispy:

<<--- this duckie is new to the show. he finally paddled over from the "main" stream. quack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Alex In Illinois:

What could be more perfect than starting a song called "International Date" line on the hour? I mean, because the International Date line is all about time. You know? It's like where the ultimate top of the hour starts.
Avatar 6:10pm Mary Wing:

Hiya xtrakrispy, welcome to dancey Fridays!
Avatar 6:11pm Mary Wing:

Heh. Alex, I played it right at the top of the hour because the show on the main WFMU stream plays that song at the start of their show. I wanted to confuse people about where they were listening. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm fred:

@Alex: but it's only midnight in the western continental european time zone, not all that international
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Got me Mary Wing !
That's kewl.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Ike:

@Mary@6:06, more or less. I think. Fridays can be a little chaotic here....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Alex In Illinois:

Hmmm. I guess that makes it a Continental date line?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm fred:

@Alex: I guess so, since it's not Analytic anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm fred:

Bernie again!!! (OK, not that Bernie)
Avatar 6:30pm Mary Wing:

It's Barney, isn't it? I know his name is Bernard, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm xtrakrispy:

<— Duckie just realized I forgot to turn on the subwoofer. QUACK! That’s better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm fred:

@Mary: yeah, it's Barney, but I went with wishful thinking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm fred:

Though Bernie Sanders knows a thing or two about putting his hands in the air (though not caring isn't in the package)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Michael 98145:

this has been One Fine Party

Lene Lovich, B52s, and this Byrne Eno album, I frequently played in the early 80s
Avatar 6:49pm Mary Wing:

Thanks, Pierogi Doug--I can't believe there are only 2 tracks left! Where did the time go?
  6:50pm rw:

Definitely unguent. Always unguent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm fred:

@Mary: I'm even more thankful for this show given that I can't listen to the regular one these days
  6:51pm rw:

I had to look up unguent
