MUSIC FOR OFFICE PARTIES

Per Owen's request, here's a little getdown mix as we go into the holiday season (I've got a Christmas mix on deck, but it's a ton of material) to use at your office party. Office parties can be such a drag, man. Funny how people, at office parties, do everything they can to not talk business and then find out that they really can't talk about anything else intelligently. Well, this mix fills in those awkward silences and pauses between discussions of how some cat's bowel movements stink up the whole west side of the building. Remember, though, it's an office party and these are your co-workers so watch those hands. You might have Human Resources at your desk come Monday.

This mix features the soft sounds of the Emotions, Rufus' "Chicken," a timely run at the Honeydrippers' "Impeach the President," T-Connection and Pat Lundy's explosive "Work Song." Yep, this is the illness right here. Click HERE to download and watch for the thongs.
