Music is an important part of any Mayday celebration. Especially used in the dancing, but it is nice to leave it running for the entire event. Polka music is a favorite because it works great with the dances and seems to sound like Spring. Also Waltzes and jigs work well. A favorite CD is Strauss: The Best of Vienna (available at Amazon.com). It has a number of Polka's in it. Or go to itunes.com. Download their music library and you can listen to all the songs you like. Buy only the ones you like for 99 cents. It is best just to have livelier songs, so when the kids are learning the dances, they won't have to stop and wait for a faster song to come on.
