Dancing and drinking in Montreal

My boyfriend and I will be in Montreal for a long weekend June 25 through June 28, and we're looking for non-pretentious, mixed-crowd bars and clubs with good electronic music or hip hop. This should be easy, no? [more inside]

Chilled Out pop songs for a summer mix.

I'm looking for pop songs -- dance or hip-hop -- that have the same kind of chilled out almost-but-not-quite-90s-euro-house vibe as Ne-Yo - Closer, Jhene Aiko - The Worst. The songs should have kind of a relaxed vocal, washed out synths, subtle guitar and/or piano, and an easy groove. I'm especially looking for songs from the past 5 years. (and not Daft Punk).

Poetry and dance

What songs fuse poetry or spoken word with music? The closest I can think of are Baz Luhrmann's "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" and Poe's "Hey Pretty". I'd be especially interested in mashups that do this.

Advice on traveling to Guinea

Our daughter is going to a dance intensive program in Guinea, Africa. While my wife and I have traveled quite a bit in Europe and Asia, Africa is new to us. She will be getting all necessary shots, travel insurance, etc., but we're more interested in the less than obvious. While she will be in and out of Conakry, from our understanding she will also be helping to build a school and traveling around other parts of Guinea. Does anyone have any advice for our daughter about Guinea, travel to Africa, cultural dos and don'ts or logistical information about communications, phones, or anything else? Thanks!

Dave Brubeck and Daft Punk walk into a bar

It seems 4/4 is the universal time signature for electronic music / techno / EDM. Is there a song or artist that uses any other time signature in a consistent way? As in not just a bridge or for special effect.

Le Pop Super-Bon!

Le Pop Super-Bon! Can anyone suggest French bubble-gum pop that's especially au courant? Like Yelle (particularly her first album), only more recent? Stuff good for dancing or for cleaning the house. I've seen these threads, but they're a bit stale. Merci à tous!

Help me to impress my teen

Last week, I shared the music video That's What's Up, by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, with my 15 year old and she fell in love with it. This week, daughter was assigned a project in her video production class to create an advertisement for the Sadie Hawkins dance at her high school. Inspired by the ES video, she's decided to recruit some youngsters from the on-campus preschool (where she is a volunteer) and film a short music video depicting a little girl asking a little boy to dance.
