Dances are known for being a time to let go, party, and to, quite obviously, dance. However, they don’t have the same effect if you don’t have good music to move to. The music either makes or breaks the experience.

It seemed majority of the students at the dance were struggling to feel the music and have more fun. “I’m just waiting for a good song”, commented Jon Dyal, but it seemed like that “good song” never came.

“Yeah they had played some weird music, and a lot of the songs are the kind that are overused to the point that you want to rip your hair out whenever you hear it”, Eli Davis, a Riverton High School student told me.

All of the songs were old, overplayed pop hits that a lot of us have gotten sick of. Examples would include: “Me Too” by Meghan Trainor, “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, “Tonight Tonight” by Hot Chelle Rae, and “Can’t Stop the Feeling”, by Justin Timberlake.

There were, however, some that seemed to fit appropriately to the theme, which was “Blast To The Past”.

“I noticed they had played some songs from the movie Grease”, Eli Davis continued to explain.

There seemed to be some parts in certain songs that everybody would mosh pit, but it wasn’t very often. There was a lot of standing around and partial commitment to dancing.

“In all honesty, it was kind of lame, Bingham’s Prom wasn’t like this at all, everyone was jumping around like crazy and all the songs were hip hop party jams that aren’t overused”, Jon Dyal also added.

The dance was still a dance though, so of course people still enjoyed it and had fun, but a lot of students felt the music could have been better.
