Sets of music for every party Part 1

Sets of Music for every party
Recently a DJ in Training asked me about music sets and asked me to draw up a bunch of sets so if stuck he would know exactly what to play. So I jotted some sets down and I am going to post them here so EVERYONE has access to them. PLEASE add more sets that you use in the comments section to help all of us grow as DJs.
