Playlist halp: happy retro instrumental cocktail night?

Anywhere from Dixieland to Penguin Café Orchestra, via Django Reinhardt and something Latin, what musicians/tracks/albums can you suggest for a 4-hour playlist to make a happy, potentially boppable score to a cocktail party? Would be nice to divide it into intro, main and outro parts - but all suggestions are welcome for a fun, refined, vocal-less (or at least mainly so), non-pop soundtrack to a charming, light-hearted evening. (Bonus points if sourceable via Rdio.) Thanks!

The most important question ever asked on AskMe

So, a while ago, Anne Hathaway rapped on Conan. She said that it is "in the style of Lil' Wayne". Not knowing anything about Lil' Wayne, is there a particular song of his that sounds like hers? I google some of his songs, but, again, not knowing anything about him, I don't know if she's referring to a particular song. The few that I listened to briefly didn't really bear much resemblance. Thanks for helping me answer this critical question!

What pop music have I been missing?

My entire cosmology of music fell apart when I found out how much I love Taylor Swift. I grew up on cheesy 80's pop and still love it to this day. What music did I miss because I was haters gonna hating? Are there great songs by boy bands?

Who is the Senegalese musician in the video in the Field Museum?

When I was on vacation in Chicago last year I stopped by the Field Museum and happened to catch a video in the Senegal exhibit of a musician playing and singing a song that I thought was really beautiful. I recall that he was playing the kora and that the lyrics pertained to a shaman or similar person. I have tried looking on the Field Museum website and sending them an email but no dice so far. Does anyone know who is in the video and/or the name of the song?

Music licensing when I have the only copy but there is no copyright?

I have an unlabeled acetate record from the early 60s that contains music and an interview with a late musician, composer and counter-cultural icon of some note. As far as I've been able to figure, I have the only copy and there is no copyright. There is a documentary about this person in the works and the director/producer is interested in using this material. Someone else, the operator of a long-running fansite, would like to release it as part of a retrospective album next year. I've already offered that it be used in the film for free. Is it possible for me to get compensation for its inclusion on any audio releases? [more inside]

Help me make my musical tastes more pedestrian!

I'm looking for a certain flavor of music—I guess the kids call it indie pop?—with the (often female) vocalist front and center, largely electronic production, relatively sophisticated and grown-up lyrics, and a tendency to borrow freely from dance music (while steadfastly resisting the temptation to go full-on OONSTA OONSTA).

Page turner recommendations for iOS/iPad

I use GoodReader for reading sheet music on an iPad (3). What wireless page turners work well with iOS (particularly with GoodReader)? I am not so much looking for Google search results that I can find on my own — but if you have experience with a page turner device and how well it works with "standard" or "common" reader apps, I'd like to hear about your positive or negative experiences!

massive percussion / trumpet song.

So a few years back i heard a song and just now went back to my jazzy list on youtube only to find most of the videos deleted.. the tune was as far as I remember very upbeat, featured lots of blow instruments and percussion. and I believe it also was in a commercial at the time, and from what i've been able to research it isnt on any ok-go tune availible on spotify.

Addicted to Pure Heroine

I like Lorde's debut album, Pure Heroine, a lot. Is there an explanation beyond personal preference, from a musical perspective that explains why I find the entire album so compelling? Admittedly, the songs do sound sort of alike, but is there an actual, concrete, musical reason why I find this album so catchy? (I never got very far into theory.) Bonus: Do you know any similar songs or albums?

What's the name of this song?

I feel as though I've heard this song in many places, but its lack of lyrics have made it difficult to search for. I've most recently encountered it in an episode of Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends. I suspect that it might be by Esquivel like the show's opening theme, but I haven't been able to find it based on that alone. This has been driving me crazy!

The Greatest Horror Movie Music Hits?

I'm looking for songs that aren't objectively scary or spooky, but due to their use in horror/slasher/whatever movies/TV, they're now associated with scary times. "Goodbye Horses" in Silence Of The Lambs would be the ideal with "Red Right Hand" in Scream just squeeking in.

Morbidfilter: What Jazz greats should I see live...before they die?

So I was lucky enough to see Ray Charles before he died at the Hollywood Bowl. And Sarah Vaughn at the Blue Note in the 80's. And Ella at Radio City around the same time. But I never got to see Sinatra. Or Sammy. Or Nina Simone. Largely because I couldn't afford it. So now it occurs to me I can. And Southwest tickets aren't that expensive if I want to go anywhere in the US. So who should I see among the greats - who are still out there playing - before it's too late?

Designing Gig Posters

I'm interested in offering my illustration services up for bands' gig posters, and hopefully get to a place where I could get some repeat work in that milieu. It'd be great to make some money from it, but I don't expect it to be overly lucrative. Still, it'd be gratifying to me if I could do work for some of my favourite indie bands. The trouble is that I don't know who handles the production of posters, be it the band, their label or the clubs they play in. Does anyone have any insight into the process by which gig posters are created? I've done freelance illustration in the past, but there seem to be specific rules to this niche. [more inside]
