I recently got the responsibility for driving our Clown Van in a parade. First things first, I decided to update the mixtape. (And it was an actual mixtape, too. The van is so old that we only have a cassette player in the dash.) The van is equipped with external speakers, so the crowd does hear what you're playing. Anyway, here was my playlist: 1.) Entry of the Gladiators - an obvious choice, but I figured it gets the crowd in the mood for clowns 2.) Pharell's Happy song - this turned out to be an awesome pick as it got the crowd clapping along during the chorus 3.) Punchinello - another circus standard, one of the handlers started miming a march (as that's how the beat is structured) 4.) Macarena - while I'm not really a fan, and I personally think this song is old, it was basically the one song on the previous playlist and thus sort of our song. Plus, people do seem to remember the moves --- even moreso now that the 90's retro revival is in full swing. The rest of the playlist is filled with random instrumental Disney tunes, but I really would love to add contemporary tunes that are kid-appropriate and the crowd can dance to. Any suggestions?
