Girl Talk: Amazing “name that tune” dance party

Posted by admin On May - 24 - 2008

Girl Talk looked like he was having just as much fun as the rest of us.

-Z.T.-

Girl Talk is Gregg Gillis. A laptop DJ, who “mashes up” remixes of popular songs, gets as much of the crowd on stage as possible and dances around shirtless. By far the most fun of the first day.

During his sound check he yells out, “Turn my voice down. I hate my voice. I hate myself.” As a montage of news clips talking about “Girl Talk” plays on the PA, he strolls on the stage and gets the party started instantly by leaping onto the DJ table and yelling YES! 12 times before reminding us, “The sun’s coming out. It’s fucking Friday. No one’s at work right now!”

After a fake album leak announcement where he assures us his new one would be out in a week. Or two. or three he assures us he’s play exclusively classic stuff, new stuff and old stuff. What a lovely enigma he is.Girl Talk may say he hates himself, but the kids love him.

Moving from Jay-Z’s “Justify My Thug” to Clipse’s “Wamp Wamp” to The Band’s “The Weight” with ease, he’s got six audience members grinding on stage by 7:03 p.m.

By 7:08 p.m. he’s teasing Ace of Base, “No Diggity,” and “Flashing Lights” as 30 stage dancers start taking over.

7:10 he’s mish mashing Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” into Biggie’s “Juicy” to 50-cent’s “In Da Club” with another ten dancers storming.

7:14 Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips takes the stage with giant hands.Wayne Coyne checking out the set from Girl Talk backstage.

The next hour is a treat. Where else can you hear “Come on Eileen,” “Big Papa,” “Want You to Want Me,” “Jessie’s Girl” “Under The Bridge,” “Call on Me,” “Lollipop,” “Big Pimpin” and some Gloria Estefan and Michael Jackson. He finishes with a nasty version of “Say it Ain’t So” before singing a song and proving he should stick to the mash-up game.
