I’m in the process of picking out songs for that, and have some Sinatra, Dean Martin & Nat King Cole songs that my brother picked out (he’s a fan) for me, and I didn’t know if it would be weird to mix jazz with pop & other styles. They’d all be the slow, calmer songs that fit with the dinner hour tempo.

I would..and am. I am having Sinatra, Dean Marting along with Cake and Taylor Swift. They are all songs that the 2 of us like together. We figured most people will be too busy talking to really pay attention to the styles of music.
Its fun…go for it.

There are some really good lounge-y covers of contemporary pop, rock and rap songs that you might want to look in to. Or going the other way, there are also really awesome techno/pop remixes of the old standards. There are several ways to mix it up while keeping everything in a similar style.

You bet! In fact, if there are any songs you like that aren’t “exciting” enough to dance to, stick them in your dinner hour playlist. I suggest staying away from rap, country, top 40’s, and anything else that wouldn’t appeal to a broad audience. Stick to the kind of stuff you hear in restaurants and department stores. 🙂

My friend had a DMB (her pick) / Beatles (his pick) mix for her dinner music, and it worked because everything was similar tempo. I say go for it!
