I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but I LOVE MUSIC AND I LOVE TO DANCE! And now that my body is on the mend, I was able to get back into some West Coast Swing last night and some dorky car-dancing on the way home from work! So to celebrate my returned health, here are my top ten favourite tunes to dance to - enjoy!
10. Unskinny Bop - Poison
The beat is just so incredibly laid back and, dare I say it, boppy, that it's almost lazy. It just feels so natural to just groove along to this tune that it's almost an automatic response every time I hear this song!
9. That's How You Know - Nico and Vince feat. Kid Ink and Bebe
This song is hilarious. The slow beat provides a funny counterpoint to the lyrics, not to mention it's just funky and easy to move to. Great for when you're stuck in traffic and need something slow and groovy to bop to while you're waiting for those god-forsaken lights to change. That's not mentioning how fun it is to sing along to. Loudly.
8. Pussy Game (JUSTiNB's Hyped Up Remix) - Bonnie Max
The SECOND this fast-paced dance-fest starts you are just zapped with instant energy, making you want to jump up and down and around and around. Then the sexy melody kicks in during the verses and it becomes just this powerful sex anthem - innuendo anyone?
7. God Is A DJ - P!nk
This song is just the perfect let-go-and-party song. The lyrics are deep and relatable, the beat is laid back with a solid energy that carries you while you just don't care. This song is just for you, letting you forget about everything and just enjoy the moment.
6. Ghostbusters - Ray Parker Jr.
I make no apologies for this song at all. Like YOU don't dance to it and yell "Ghostbusters!" every time Ray Parker Jr. asks who you're gonna call. The only difference between you and I is that I'm not afraid to admit that this song is just plain funky - and I sing it in public. I ain't afraid of no ghosts!
5. Hot Chilli Woman - Noiseworks
Hearing that harmonica and everyone in the room is like "Ohhhhhhhh yeah!!!!!!" and the dancing is hot and frantic and sexy and rockin'. This song is the stronger, sexier "Unskinny Bop". Put it on and just watch everyone get hot and sweaty.
4. And We Danced - The Hooters
This sweet little number is all about that connection that you get dancing with someone - the vibes are right, the moves are sweet, the beat is rockin' and we're gonna dance all night and shake the paint of the walls.
3. All Night Long (Panik Mix) - J-Mi and Midi-D
Like "Pussy Game", this song just starts off with pure energy - and keeps it throughout. The ebb and flow of that amazing bassline makes moving along to the music feel so amazing and natural - you just get taken along on a magical musical ride and you don't want to get off.
2. I Can't Dance - Genesis
Okay, hands up everyone who KNEW this song was going to be on here? Now keep them up if you thought it was going to be number one? Ha ha! This song is my all time most favourite song of all time, of course singing and dancing along with it in the most dorky of fashions is going to be one of my favourite things.
1. Dancing in the Storm - Boom Crash Opera
Boom Crash Opera have to be one of the most unappreciated bands in the entire Universe. This song is that perfect rock song that is surprisingly deep, so perfectly natural to dance to, has a great beat and just captures you in its embrace and dances away with you. It combines the rock from songs like "Hot Chilli Woman" with the depth from "God Is A DJ" and the need to dance from "And We Danced".
