Today, I woke up thinking about my college days. I thought back to all of the parties I went to at Bethune-Cookman University and all of the events I've DJ'd for the school. It's crazy how the events always feel like one big family reunion. You'll have your arguments, your hugs, the people you haven't seen in a while and you have the songs that everyone at the function knows!

There are absolutely certain songs that are regional. This means that outside of a certain area, people won't know those certain songs. I know for sure that going to school in Florida, there's a long list of songs that are regional. I've experienced a few regional songs when I traveled to California as well. The thing is, I've traveled to many HBCU's both in college and after college and there are certain songs that you will hear no matter what HBCU you go to. I've partied at Florida A&M University, Clark Atlanta, Norfolk State, North Carolina A&T, North Carolina Central, Tuskeegee, Alabama A&M and so many other HBCU's. There is definitely a list of songs that you can play at any of these schools and everyone at the function will know and turn up to these songs.

I could go on for days with this list! I'm sure you probably have a list of your own that you know will get the function jumping! Feel free to send me some songs you think should be on the list. Hit me up on Facebook @BigDawgDreDay.
