Anytime they ask for a song that doesn’t go with what I’m playing!

'Empire State of Mind' by Jay Z vs 'Un Verano En Nueva York' by El Gran Combo live, but it worked amazing. (Only one I could think of.)
What’s your guilty favorite song?
Skee Lo, 'I Wish,' was the first song I ever heard on MTV, while I visited some family in New Jersey. At the moment I lived in Puerto Rico, so it was my first time introduced to MTV. Also I could say Pitbull feat. Sean Paul's 'Culo' (remix). That first verse get’s me going.
