Jesse Marco— "Daddy Cool"
Jesse Marco: "Daddy Cool" is my first party starter. I made this to move dance floors and people dancing.

Daft Punk — "One More Time"

Nirvana — "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
Jesse Marco: R.I.P. Kurt Cobain, maybe it's overdone by now, but new generations of kids are discovering Nirvana, and this will always make a party bump.
Jay-Z — "Public Service Announcement"
