Can you help compile a Zumba mixtape?

A dear friend would like a collection of music similar to what she hears at the gym doing Zumba. Songs that are upbeat and either in English, Portuguese or Spanish, please. Not sure either of us can be any more specific than this, so can you help? Looking at collections on Amazon and youtube videos made me want recommendations from people who have direct experience of exercising to music. Many thanks.

We're Gonna Party Like it's (a Year that Ends in 6)

Two of my dear friends are turning 40 and 50, respectively, so we're going to have a party. Throw me some great songs from 1966 and 1976 to put on the mix! Bonus points for forgotten gems; a simple thanks for songs that are still in oldies-tight-rotation.

"The oysters were delighted" song lyrics?

Song detectives, can you crack this crazy-tough one? Way back in the early '90s we had a mixtape with a song that included the phrase (we think) "the oysters were delighted!" I think the mixtape's theme was moon-related. [more inside]

lossy formats to minidisc, that bad? or equally obscure mixtape format.

Like alot of people over a certain age, I have a real fondness and nostalgia for making mixtapes (for myself at this point, since so few people have anything to play them on). Of course, I've used iTunes and Spotify and put tracks on memory cards etc etc but it's not the same thing at all. I'm looking to get something tangible that I can record and archive mixes to pull out and play whenever. I'm looking at Minidisc stuff on ebay, since I always liked them, but would be recording much of the material to MDs (lossy) from mp3s, AAC etc as well as higher rez formats. Would that sound ultra terrible? Should I just go back to cassettes? [more inside]

How do I mix tape? (2015 version)

Of course, they used to be tapes. The last time I put a collection of music together for someone to listen to, I put it all on a thumb drive, then they just imported it all into iTunes. But my intended recipient doesn't have a desktop/laptop computer. Only an iPhone. I'm stumped. Thought of Dropbox, but... that's not gonna work. I could go iTunes gift card, then a list of music... but no. That's not a gift, that's a project! Halp?

Making a Mixtape with iTunes

I'm trying to make a (somewhat belated) 2014 "Mixtape" to share with friends. I have a Mac-centric home network, but I'm getting frustrated trying to simply do the following: 1. Create a playlist 2. Order the playlist and change album artist etc so it will show up as a various artists album 3. Export the songs. [more inside]

Evil, Sexy Tango

Three of my favorite songs share a similar sort of vibe, a vibe that I tend to think of as sort of tango-like, but with a sort of snarling, sinister edge. I'd like to find more stuff like this so that I could make a mix tape in this vein. [more inside]

I wanna do bad things with you.

A friend of mine is looking for "awesome, sexy, scary, dark, Halloween-type songs that [she] can do burlesque to." She's thinking along the lines of the theme song from True Blood, although she's already done a routine to that song. So please, you masters of mixes, give us your scary-sexiest songs.

Suggestions for mixtape?

Help for playlist? Every year I make a mixed tape/cd for my brother for Christmas. This year the theme seems to be "almost annoying pop songs that you would never buy yourself but you know you sing along to" and "cool songs that you didnt think to buy yourself." So far I have call me maybe, never ever getting back togther, womanizer by britney spears, telephone by lady gaga, and e.t. by katy perry, for the first half. I have long skirt/short jacket by cake, seven nation army by the white stripes, another way to die by jack white and alicia keys, and oh my by gin wigmore. Can anyone suggest a couple more tunes to round out my mix tape? Thanks!
