Lately I have been having a lot of nights out where the music choices are just killing me. It may be due to the fact that the more music one hears, the more discerning and selective one becomes. As a newbie everything is great, but the longer one dances, the less tolerant one becomes. In my case, I have had a couple of nights where I just left early because it was bad and not getting better. One place (not a regular venue) played 75% bachata. Another played 50% romantica. I can take a romantica or two per night, but I have to force myself to dance, as I just don't do well with it - it doesn't make me want to dance. I find many of these songs are just too chill, too spineless, too bleah for me. I have found that if I sit out dances and mope about the music it detracts from the fun I have, so I have taken to just dancing whatever comes up and making the best of it. This is still my best bet, but certain DJs and certain nights just make it so hard if they neglect the kind of music I enjoy . Give me salsa dura, mambo, the classics, something with clave and I am fine. But when most of the night is everything but, it makes me want to not stay. I now avoid certain places because of bad experience with the music played. Many of the regular places I go have different DJ's rotating through, so I have a hard time knowing where to go My limited experience in the big cities - SF, NY - seems to indicate the quality of the music is much more in tune with my tastes, but in my neck of the woods it is very inconsistent. Do you ever talk to the promoter or DJ about the music? I have taken to making sure to thank and praise a DJ who has a great playlist; but I feel like if I take the opposite tack and point out the things I don't care for it just sounds like whining. So I just try to dance every song, and maybe leave early and try another place next time if it is too bad for me. This seems to be happening frequently lately.I know they can't please everyone every song, and I don't mind an occasional bachata, merengue, or kizomba, but if the playlist is not 80-90% salsa, it is not my kind of place. Do you find it harder and harder to find enjoyable music to dance to? How do you handle this?
