Party Songs - Leonard Cohen?

Postby ScottM » Thu Nov 30, 2017 1:59 pm

My company has put out a survey to allow the employees to influence the play list at our annual end of year celebration. Basically the most popular choices will be played on the night to thousands of revellers enjoying themselves at the company's expense.

I have forwarded my choice of songs to the organisers. I am hopeful that I will receive additional support from colleagues. What do you think my chances are of hearing these played? .... Ever hopeful!

If you ever hear those songs at a "celebration" you are wearing headphones. :D

Perhaps you might wish to consider 'Queen Victoria' as a way to get everyone onto the dance floor if things need livening up even more.
