My process for choosing music:
If the song has a specific context that I know about or came across through research, that gets considered as well. I may also watch the video.
So many songs with a great groove that would be fun to dance to get disqualified because they are either overly suggestive, or demeaning towards women.
I try to find a workable balance across all those criteria. Once I’ve made my choices, I purchase the music, then cut or remix it as necessary.
