    Poolside Tunes

    I've been trying to compile a collection of (legally obtained of course) music to listen to while hanging out around the pool. I thought Sirius's Margaritaville or some of the other channels would fit the bill, but they have songs on there that seem completely out of place way too often. Anybody have any specific song/performer suggestions? I'll post my playlist later to avoid influencing the answers, but of course there's plenty of Jimmy and the Coral Reefers.

    I don't think you would like my playlist suggestions since I usually have dance, ambient, trance, breakbeat, and techno playing around the pool! (What can I say, I once worked as a DJ in dance clubs and country western clubs. I like the dance music better than the CW.)

    My playlist containes a LOT of dance remixes of artists like Stevie Nicks and
    Annie Lennox to the major club artists and artists like Moby, Robert Fripp, New Order, Tangerine Dream, and 808 State.

    The new Paulo Abdul/Randy Jackson tune, "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow" is awesome. So is the new Kylie Minogue, "In My Arms". Donna Summer also has a new #1 club hit out..."I'm a Fire"

    Anyway, this is the stuff that I listen to around the pool. Makes it feel like an ongoing party!

    my pool tunes depending on the crowd....

    I'm with waterbear in 'party' mode, in fact, i'd love some of his music burnt for me.... 'wink wink' or at least more of a compiled list he recommends for that more chill style of dance/dj music.

    but in general, when relaxing, there's usally a good supply of cali-type music, reggae and such. Sublime is my default favorite, pretty much any and all Sublime will be a part of my collection. Then there's Bob Marley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, most anything with a ska funk sound.

    Radio Margaritaville here too

    Also, I have all of our music on a 60gb Ipod, it's full already, but I just took the time to create a bunch of different playlists so what ever mood we're in we can play it, such as we have all of U2's music so there's a U2 playlist, rock playlist, of course a Buffet play list, country/rock-a-billy playlist and the lists go on...

    And not to thread jack, but since we're talking about music, going to see Buffet Saturday Night

    There's also another avenue I forgot to mention. I don't know if can do this or not, but there is a web site - boomerradio.com - that plays great music as well; but I guess you'd have to have some kind of setup for your computer and that's about as far as I know about that!

    uwimage....have fun...I don't like you! , have one for me, I'm jealous and whatever else I'm missing that tells you that's it's not fair!!!

    This is a pretty diverse crowd, as we would expect. Head banger here, XM channel 41, the Bone Yard. Played through a PC to wireless speakers out by the pool. Rock on!

    I like a lot of diverse music, what I listen to at the pool or in a relaxed setting is not always what I'd be listening to in the truck.... more like some System of a Down, Disturbed, Korn, Papa Roach, Ill Nino... those are some good ones, and I'm sure they'll make it to the pool some as well....

    Are you able to play music streamed from you pc? If so, check out www.pandora.com. You can make playlists based on Artist, Songs, Genres, etc. What's really cool about pandora is that it is incredibly intuitive at picking out music you will like based on the songs and artists you choose. The more songs you rate, the better it does. They call their process "The music genome project," using very specific characteristics of music to analyze and predict listener preferences.

    What I like is that I can make stations based on particular artists or specific songs and listen to those when I'm in the mood. But if I want a mix, I can select as many of my own stations as I want for a quick-mix and it jumbles it all up.

    Again, you'll be quite surprised at how very good it is at picking music you will like.

    Oh, and it's free with no ads interrupting your play lists either.

    I use Pandora and also use SHOUTcast, which has some EXCELLENT European dance and ambient stations on it.
    I also pipe my Sirius Radio out to the pool.
    If I am in the mood I will play MP3's and Ogg Vorbis files and maybe even mix them via the laptop (I have a few different DJ software pagckages but NON of them really give the same feel as mixing from turntables with vinyl...now THAT was DJing!)

    yea, my brother was a dj for a long time in orlando and tampa... to which I used to frequent A LOT. I think he just recently sold his tables with a tear in his eye but they were in the way of his 'grown up' life... hehe
