"This is my song, sweetie," a girl once said to me as I was about to get on stage.
Totally understandable. Actually, now, if someone were to pick my song, I'd be pretty pissed.
Songs are important because they become your signature, your anthem. When the first few notes play, everyone - the dancers, the staff, the regulars, should know that you are about to get on stage.
Some of my songs are:
"Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes.
"The Hardest Button To Button" by The White Stripes.
"Foxy Lady" by Jimi Hendrix.
"Only" by Nine Inch Nails.
'Woman" by Wolfmother.
"Redhouse Blues" by The Doors.
There are others, but "Seven Nation Army" is the first song the DJ will play for me, 100% of the time. While the other songs may sometimes be played for other dancers, or when I'm not there, "Seven Nation Army" is definitely all mine, only mine. That - is my song.
It's a treat to hear someone say, "Whenever I hear this song, I think of Lux."
Clever marketing ploy?
