    I was out for beers with a co-worker who had no recollection of ever hearing
    'Groove is in the heart' by Deee-Lite (the subject came up because the bar
    we were in was playing it). I found it very unlikely he had never heard the
    song, but he explained 'Oh thats just dance-crap, I just tune out and dont
    hear that music.' So I gave him a copy of a compilation I put together.
    Stylistically, the music was diverse, from German-post-punk-electronic-art
    rock to loungey, mellow jazzy stuff. Much of the music was really difficult
    to pigeonhole, but it was all electronic somehow. He liked some parts of
    the cd alot, and some of it not at all, but the funny part was when he asked
    me, "So what kind of music is this?" What could I say, it was 14 songs and
    about 8 different styles - so i said, it's just dance-crap.
