Up The Basics Top Requests

At All Tracks Music we try to sort our music into several categories to help eliminate confusion in the music selection process.  The categories are listed below:

Backgrounds - We offer Light Instrumental; Light Country & Rock 'n' Roll; or Holiday music.

Big Band/Swing - Probably our broadest category.  This includes music from the 20's, 30's, 40's, and early 50's.  Artists would include everything from Glen Miller, Count Basie, and Bing Crosby, to Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, and Harry James.

Polkas/Ethnic - This category would include classic polkas, country polkas, and music from different ethnic backgrounds such as Jewish, Italian, Irish or Latin.

Classic Country - This is the more classic form of Country Western music.  Artists would include George Jones, Hank Williams, Sr., Patsy Cline, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Earnest Tubb, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette.

Modern Country - This is the more pop influenced form of Country music.  Artists would include Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Alabama, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Toby Keith and the newest artists in the genre.

50's/60's Pop - This is what is known as "Classic" or "Golden Oldie" rock 'n' roll.  Artists would include Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chubby Checker, The Beatles, Tommy James and any number of early Motown acts.

70's Pop - This category spans from the Summer of Love to the end of the Disco craze.  Folk, rock and dance music are all part of the 70's musical era.  Artists would include 5th Dimension, the Commodores, Wild Cherry, Boston, Chicago, CCR, the Bee Gees, ABBA, and Sly and the Family Stone.

80's Pop - The 80's were filled with plenty of one hit wonders but there were also several acts that have had plenty of influence on music even today.  Artists would include Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2, Poison, Motley Crue, Prince, Journey, and the Police.

90's Pop - The 90's saw music splinter into so many sub-groups its impossible to keep track of them all.  From Hip Hop to Grunge Rock, the 90's truly had a little something for everyone.  Artists include Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, 2 Unlimited, 311, 69 Boyz, Ace of Base, R.E.M, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Current Top 40 - From 2000 to today, this category is changing all the time but just listen to your local top 40 radio station to find out what's hot now.

R&B/Hip Hop - This is generally music that didn't make Mainstream Top 40 charts but it has a great beat to dance to and can usually be heard on an Urban Radio station.  These songs tend to be radio edited versions.

Explicit Music - This is the hard-core, curse laden, explicit rock and rap music.  Somewhat more difficult to dance to, and not appropriate for many situations.

Techno/House - Very beat driven, electronica style music.  Lyrics are either repetitive or non existent.  This music tends to be very fast and is usually found in clubs or at raves.

Rock/Metal - This category is reserved for some of the less mainstream, sometime more hard-core rock.  Bands that rarely find the top 40 but have huge fan followings are generally in this category.  This is a more true rock category and less Pop-Rock.

Group/Icebreaker - These are songs that encourage large audience participation.

Chicken Dance - Also known as the Chicken Polka.  This is a large group, circle dance that is fun for all ages.

Hokey Pokey - Everybody knows the Hokey Pokey.  Just follow along.

Electric Slide - The easiest of the line dances to learn.  This has been popular since its introduction in the late 1980's.

Cha Cha Slide - A catchy, fun modern day hybrid of the Electric Slide, the Hokey Pokey and the Stationary Cha Cha.  Just follow the instructions by the singer throughout the song.

Macarena - A Latin flavored line dance that requires a variety of arm movements.  Still popular today and easy to learn.

Cotton Eyed Joe - A very fun, traditional country circle dance.  Skipping, kicking and yelling often accompany this crowd pleaser.

Conga Line - Everyone can join in with this Latin/Caribbean favorite.  A great way to get guests involved by bring the dance to them.

Limbo - A children's favorite, to be sure, see how low you can go under the limbo stick.  No cheating!

Flying Dutchman - Get into groups of three and have great fun swinging your partners around in this great group Polka.

Snowball Dance - Each time the DJ says snowball, the dancers go grab somebody who's not dancing and bring them onto the the dance floor.  Like a snowball rolling downhill, the dance floor gets bigger and bigger and bigger!

Anniversay Dance - Also sometimes considered a "Reverse" snowball dance.  The DJ eliminates dancers, typically married couples, until only one remains.  Usually it's the longest married couple that's left.  A great way for the bride and groom to recognize friends or family that have been married for many years.
