Does anyone get that feeling??? Lately its:

quote:
We can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine

Say, we can go where we want to, a place that they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind

And we can dance


Everytime I hear the commercial.

Scott Joplin wrote an opera (yes he did, and a very good one) called Treemonisha. It closes with a song called "A Real Slow Drag". You cannot sit still for this song. Ya just gotta move.

It even comes with instructions...

the real test for songs like this is if it helps you when you're getting off a plane. (tiny white tuxedo) bozz, deplane, deplane. "i'm still standing" by sir elton works for me, i'm toe tapping by the time i get to the luggage carousel.
