The same week I got to DJ on Plug.dj with some people in the 80s Alt /New Wave group, playing my favorite thing, cover versions. I had a blast, even though it did not play well with my Firefox extensions. 

Plug.dj is the successor to the late lamented Turntable.fm. It's really easy to start playing music. You are limited to songs with YouTube videos, but that is most of them (make sure not to play the live version if that's not what you want.) Navigation takes a little getting used to. I'm a sucker for the gamification aspect where you get a cooler avatar the more you play.

I need some people to come join me on the wheels of steel, so unleash your inner DJ and come with me...
