A few will always be there and considered classics. But of course that is hard part with being a DJ. They hear too many classics in their business and are more open to something different because it's nice. And the loser is the dancer. The Tennessee Waltz by Patti Page, is old hat for most DJs. But there are millions of the older dancers out there that get a huge enjoyment in dancing to it. And for three minutes the entire evening of mediocre stuff may have been worth it.
