    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!
