    Bus Stop and Tush Push suggestions

    This topic has come up before-- but I don't think it ended with definitive results.
    I often get requests along these lines:
    "Can you play a bus stop song?"
    "We want to do the Bus Stop."
    "How about a good song for us to do the Bus Stop?"
    "Play Bus Stop."


    And here's another wrinkle in the puzzle: Sometimes they will say "How about a song we can do the Bus Stop-- or Tush Push to?"

    I've been researching this Bus Stop stuff for years. To this day I have yet to come up with a solid answer.

    There is a song called "(Are You Ready) Do the Bus Stop" by The Fatback Band
    -- There is also a Google reference to a song called "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice.
    Some claim it is the original Bus Stop song.
    I have both of them-- and on most occasions when I let somebody preview both-- they say "no-- not that."

    My best success so far has been to play "Stayin' Alive" by The Bee Gees

    And-- let me emphasis-- the answer is NOT "Bus Stop" by The Hollies. Again-- it is NOT "Bus Stop" by The Hollies.

    These same requestors who ask for the ^%&^$%# song can't give me the name of the artist to save their lives.

    So-- the question: What are you guys using when somebody comes up with the Bus Stop or Tush Push requests?

    Thanks Steve-- as I said before I have the Fatback Band version and the Bee Gees version-- That DJ Jubilee version seems like a mash-up-- including elements of the Wobble. Sooner or later I'll get this nailed.

    When I get a request for the Bus Stop from a 40+ guest, I get great responses by playing Grover Washinton Jr's Mr. Magic or any popular 100-109 BPM 4/4 song.

    DJ Kool's Let Me Clear My Throat often gets a Bus Stop going as does Yeah by Usher or Coolio's version of Fantastic Voyage.

    The 30 & unders occasionally want DJ Jubilee's rendition but most want the traditional Mr. Magic.

    Usually they ask for "that Bus Stop song with the sax and no words..."
