Suzanne's Soundtrack Sunday-Party Time!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

We can't have a party without good tunes, and I'm here for the job. In my past life, I was a radio station and club DJ and know what songs will get everybody grooving. Believe it or not, last year's SSS didn't feature my favorites. You get those this year.

So, let's plug the iPod in and get going, shall we? In no particular order, great party tunes...
