  Saturday night was filled with memorable moments for all attending El Modena High School’s A Night in Italy Homecoming. With the memorable moments comes the heart of the party that brings it all to life, the music.

  In previous years, there has always been something bad to say about homecoming music and it’s DJ. DJ Pegleg has been catering El Modena’s dance music for many years. This year, DJ Pegleg has been both bashed and praised for his selection of music. Sophomore Amanda Nguyen complemented the choices saying she “loved all the throwback songs” while senior Sofia Perez said, “It was mostly trash-rap.”

  In a summary from junior Angel Chavez, he both complained and praised DJ Pegleg saying “There was only one slow dance and the DJ only played four songs that are currently relevant… the rest was hit pop music from the late 90’s to early 2000’s, but it was fun anyways. Everyone danced and had a good time.”

  The heart of the party is the music, however, it is not an easy fleet catering to all the likes and dislikes of hundreds of high school teenagers with different backgrounds and ideas of good music. Chavez recommended that more slow songs should have been played, while Nguyen suggested more songs like Bodak Yellow by Carid B.

  Seniors, like Perez, have expressed that they were content with the music selection at their final homecoming, however, conveyed their thoughts that it could have been better. Memories, undoubtedly though, had been made and kisses, like dances, had been stolen. The night was filled with carefree happiness and teenage spirit.

  DJ Pegleg, along with the music, although complained about, accomplished bringing the school’s homecoming to life and made the night memorable, in ways both good and bad.
