It's so wet here in LA, even Oscar is wearing a raincoat.
I'm browsing songs to use Oscar night. I covered Elton John's party last year & dare I say it was my favorite night of the year? I think that's where I'm going again. Yippee!
Part of the fun is finding the perfect soundtrack to go with my piece. Last year I used Timbaland's Give it to Me. It was the perfect combo. Upbeat, hip, mellow & elegant. Not too "in your face".
This year... I'm a bit perplexed because I used the best songs for Grammys events. Rihanna's Don't Stop the Music, which makes me want to dance, Fergie's Clumsy, Kanye West's Flashing Lights. So sexy. (Did you know Spike Jonze did the video?)
Now, I'm thinking of these...
Britney's Piece of Me.. too soon? It's got a good tempo & fun.
D.A.N.C.E. by Justice... the Diplo Remix is nice.
Lupe Fiasco's Superstar... but it's kind of slow. I want to people to feel like they're at the party!
The #1 song right now is Flo Rida featuring T-Pain... Get Low. It might be a bit strong for the elegant Oscars.. hmm...
Feel free to add your ideas. Beware... it's tricky. Most of my favorite songs don't work for stories. I went to pick up my media credentials today & wore the wrong outfit. My toes were soaked.
