Ten On Tuesday

I have an event coming up this weekend that will involve speeches and eating, drinking and dancing. It’s an event that I’m in charge of and I want to makes sure people have a great time. I also really want people to dance, dance and dance some more and that’s what has led to this week’s Ten on Tuesday topic: 10 Songs That Make You Want to Dance.

  1. Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede.  Ooga chaka!
  2. Love Shack by The B-52s. It’s a good one for singing along, too.
  3. Play that Funky Music by Wild Cherry. Nothing like the beat of this one.
  4. What I Like About You by The Romantics. You really know how to dance.
  5. Jump in the Line by Harry Belafonte. Every party needs a little calypso.
  6. Sugar, Sugar by The Archies. Bubble gum pop at it’s best.
  7. You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC. It’s a rock ‘n roll song that even the old folks will dance to.
  8. Twist and Shout by The Beatles. It’s a classic for a very good reason. Plus, everyone loves to harmonize.
  9. Dancin’ With Myself by Billy Idol. I went to college in the 80s, you know.
  10. Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. Do you remember when ee used to sing? Sha la la, la la, la la, la la, l-la te da. You’re welcome for the earworm.

    What I Like About You and Love Shack might be the GREATEST get-up-and-dance songs ever! (Those shoes, though, AWESOME as they are, would totally do me in. . .)

    I wish I could wear shoes like that and not break my neck. Your event will be a blast – I’m sure of it!

    I suffer from dance dystrophy (I’m clumsy, embarassed, and generally unable to dance without hurting myself or others) but those shoes make me want to give it a try!

    Super Freak always works for me. Also, anything by Stevie Wonder especially Higher Ground.

    Dancing in the moonlight is a must, yes. But how about a couple of (non-raunchy) hiphop favorites; “This is how we do it” (or whatever it’s called) and Mary J. Blige’s “Family Affair” (soldiers dance for me…). And what about this throw(way) back–Looking glass’ “Brandy” (is this a dance song or just an awesome car cruising song?)

    in those shoes you can’t help but have a fabulous time…and everyone else will too, I’m sure!

    I suppose Singing in the Rain isn’t the kind of dancing you had in mind. :-). It’s going to a great event!

    Love the shoes! I don’t think I could walk in shoes like that much less dance. Have fun with the event. I’m sure it’ll go smoothly.
