  1. Any Tune Suggestions?? I like Junior Senior, they are a bit risque but their songs and light and catchy and make you feel like you are back in the 80’s
    And there’s Ratatat, but it’s a bit heavy on the beat but upbeat nonetheless. And nothing can be Micheal Franks for Fun , light, lovable soft jazz and pop songs that arne’t forgivable. But some of his songs are soft and slow, but still the lyrics make you laugh and smile

  2. Blink 182. Music makes me move and bounce.
