First, thanks for the feedback. It really does help provide perspective.

Because there are different levels of enjoyment? Or maybe you just appreciate the song for what it can do for you (entertain your crowd, if nothing else) without hating it?
I can honestly say I like everything in my current collection. When I talked about hitting up the charts and finding songs there, I didn't mean to imply I would just play whatever is there (though I didn't quite say that). I would find stuff I like from there that fits with the type of music (both in style and content) which matches my preferences.
Based on my current selection process, there's maybe 10-15% of the chart songs that I actually would care to listen to. There are more songs that have a really good sound, but the lyrics just put me off. And another batch that are just too slow for me (or a dance floor crowd). Given that I'm not really a DJ (but trying to think like one), I was wondering if I was being too picky.
