Every couple of months I come back to this list of records Leo (Guillermo Diaz) recites to Mary (Parker Posey) in Party Girl. In the scene, Leo has come home to find his record collection organized by Mary through the Dewey Decimal system. Here’s the scene. I wanted to post this a long time ago, but I kept doubting what I heard. I saw a couple of lists online, but they were neither in order nor 100% accurate. This is as close as I’ve gotten to what I think he says. Songs with a * are my absolute favorites. Links below on song titles!

Leo’s Set:

"You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" by Sylvester* (“It’s gonna be cross-listed under disco classics and divas, male”)

"The Lover Who Rocks You (All Night)" by India

"Double Cross" by First Choice*

"You Sexy Thing (I Believe in Miracles)" by Hot Chocolate

"Hot Music" by Pal Joey*

"X" by Junior Vasquez

"Up Down Suite" by Madonna

"My Jimmy Weighs a Ton" by Jungle Brothers

"Eric B. is President" by Eric B. & Rakim*

"The Nervous Track" by Nu Yorican Soul*

"Sex Drive" by Grace Jones*

"Is it All Over My Face?" by Loose Joints (I chose the male version because that’s my favorite, but here’s the female version)********

"Saturday Night" by (And here’s where I’m not sure. Anyone got any clues?) (EDIT: Someone suggested "Saturday Night" by Schoolly D)

"Don’t" by Sweet Pussy Pauline (Bonus track for not knowing the track above: "Fee Fi Fo Fum" and another bonus track: "Hateful Head Helen")

"Activator" by Whatever Girl (I’m assuming he means this?)

"Flash Light" by Parliament*

"Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club***

"You Used to Hold Me" by Ralphi Rosario featuring Xavier Gold

"Flip the Script" by Gang Starr*

Leo says “I Can’t Get No Sleep”at the end which I always assumed was in reference to "Insomnia" by Faithless (EDIT: Someone suggested it could be "Masters at Work")

    I feel like britticisms will never stop talking about ‘Party Girl’, and that is a very good thing.
