50 Tunes For 50 Years - Pimp My Playlist


Recommended Posts

I've been asked to DJ at a (non-NS) friend's birthday party & am thinking of doing a 50 floorfillers from 50 years type set. I want to do it all off original (US or UK) vinyl (maybe the more recent stuff from CD) & I have a fair collection of 60s 70s 80s all genres. Unlike some people on here, I don't have £1,000s to spare! I'm not spending more than a fiver per item & ideally it will all either already be in my collection or will be available at a boot sale or charity shop.

So ....... this is what I have so far - suggestions please!!

Trying to remember dates off the top of my head but I think these years are right- just some options

1970 Dave & Ansell Collins - Double barrell ( But I think Freda Payne would be a better choice)

1971 Detroit Emeralds- Feel the need in me

1972 O'jays- Love Train

1973 harold Melvin & Bluenotes- Love I Lost

1976 Archie Bell - Soul City Walk/ Candi Staton - Young Hearts Run Free

2006 - Kirk Franklin - Lookin For You to me it's a great tune and one of the type you can imagine getting on Trevor Nelson's show where he don't play too many oldies but would say this is a monster on the Northern scene now.
