I'm listening to "Shoop" by Salt-n-Peppa, and it's one of those songs that make me want to dance immediately.

I duck as I say it, but Mambo #5 is like that for me too.

We all know that MediaBoy dances naked to Duran Duran.

You?

The Modern Lovers, "Roadrunner."

There are many more, but none worthy of being mentioned in the same post.

With the possible exception of "Lust for Life."

I know 'lance, the thing is I dance to songs I'm embarassed about.

Slow songs like 'Lovers in a Dangerous Time' hit me on a physical level harder that any popish dance tune ever has. I dance the dance of raw emotion.

It's too self-revealing to not be emabarasing.

I can't see dancing to it, but I remember first hearing the Barenaked Ladies do this song, and realized how beautiful it was, especially the slow bit at the beginning (the rest is more typically them). Actually I came close to crying. Well, it was a difficult time in my life.

What about the birdies singing in the back yard or the gentle hum of the tower? What about the melody of a gentle breeze? Or what about that moment when all the threads of idea fragments finally come together SamL.

Actually the one that always gets me is Billy Idol's "Dancing with my self."

Yep, those too. I find that if I find humour or music or something nice in each aspect of my life, it keeps the stress from getting to me. I usually laugh at everything (one of those long chains of thought: if p, then q, if q, then r, . . . if z, then HAHAHA that's funny. All in the course of .5 seconds)

are they happy in bed together?
he calls she always stalls,
she calls, he always falls,
how can they put up with this weather?
she's gleaning the truth over a couple
of girls joking about love...
were they really meant for the sage and heather?
couldn't live very long alone...
fully clothed, he wouldn't say whether
he loved her past all her bad behavior.
not a chance to disguise the digit,
losing her rings and tight things.
are they happy in bed together?
can he sip her liquor under there?
are they lighting the candles for the rain?
I see she smiles for him -
that's just happy in bed together,
when it rains they seldom go out.
he walks alone without an umbrella,
she floats in soapy feathers.
he's getting older, has to beg her.
she's too clever, knows all his memories,
even the ones he thinks she can't know.
talking through dreams juggles for breath,
and the last sigh grapples for her easy mind.
her heart is happy in bed together
because she knows how simple his wants
are to tease and taunt, the girl's
glowing with that deeper presence..
and let's him free, everytime after.
where's he gone now?
hiding from her love,
knowing nothing better for him,
true was true, no longer any need
for him to know her...
they were so happy in bed together.
she's in love ten times over this season,
and to him, she's still so true.
oh, he's not so much older -
she's not so stolen either....
they're so happy in bed together:
when he whispers, she "truessss"
and chews on his ear, until,
wet and doing it,
they're even happier in bed together.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
wrote this slow jazz grind -- with very
long drawn sylllllablllllesszzz...
...as a momento to the future of my
past, without regrets: trying to distill
a happy memory into somekind of wish
for a new friend to make love happy again...
It's a jazz song, not the same thing as a
pure poem, meant to be sung, you understand,
with long drawn-out slowly trilled sylllllabbbbbuulllzzz...

I just heard Leonard Cohen singing "Back on Boogie Street" for the first time. Migosh.

Doesn't make me want to dance, exactly, but, um, move, anyway.

Songs I have to get up and air-sing:
Cryin'
Cry Me a River (there's a thread here)
and I'll think of others.

I think a great way to start the day is with the Overture from The Marriage of Figaro (Wolfie Mozart). Gets me moving.

Just so you don't think I'm a bluestocking, I first got hip to it when it opened the movie "Trading Places."

Also Stomp, Look & Listen, A Hard Day's Night, Dance To The Music (? Sly & the Family Stone), One O'Clock Jump (yikes!! I want to scream for joy and fling my skirts up!!).

And before Chicago dissolved into muck, 25 or 6 to 4 was a real mover.

I'm in love with all the old jazz/big band classics - Glen(n?) Miller, Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, etc. I used to listen to them non-stop in high school. Funny, I haven't listened to them in a long time...and now I have a craving for them! Doc Severenson (sp?) does amazing covers of all the old jazz greats, and I dare you not to tap your feet or skip in time to them.

Off to the stereo I go...

I tend to air guitar to most Jimi Hendrix. Anything by KMFDM causes me to air guitar.

If I am listening to Rob Zombie or any plain old Metal I generally start bobbing my head, the momentum takes over and I end up exhausted and asleep from thrashing around.

Unbelievable in concert!

Pink Floyd: "A Momentary Lapse of Reason"

http://www.pinkfloyd.co.uk/main.php?flash=present&quicktime=present

AC DC: "Who Made Who"

Boston "Don't Look Back"

Don't Look Back
Don't look back
A new day is breakin'
It's been too long since I felt this way
I don't mind where I get taken
The road is callin'
Today is the day

I can see
It took so long to realize
I'm much too strong
Not to comprimise
Now I see what I am is holding me down
I'll turn it around

I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin'
Far away and left behind


It's a new horizon and I'm awakin' now
Oh I see myself in a brand new way
The sun is shinin'
the clouds are breakin'
'Canse I can't lose now, there's no game to play

I can tell
There's no more time left to criticize
I've seen what I could not recognize
Everthing in my life was leading me on
but I can be strong

I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin'
Far away and left behind

There's not a song listed here that I wouldn't listen to. Give'r-give'r Sheena Easton!. Seems just last summer me and my two nep-hews was drivin' to the D-Q on a hot summers and boppin to the Stone's "It's only rockNroll." Those guys are too crazy. The nephews, that is.


"What takes me high" - Sonique
"Crazy little thing called love" - Queen
"I saw her standing there" - Beatles
"Loov me doo" Beat-els
"Good Vibrations" Marky Mark
" " Beach Boys
"Dancin' with myself" William "Billy Idol" Broad

But I'll bet that Skdadl doesn't know the Ink Spots or Harmonicats. Peg O' My Heart ?. Roland Kirk ?. I bet she's drives crazy when car radio plays "Low Rider" ?. Excuse me if I seem like a cheeky bugger tonight, Skdadl. I've had a few.

I'm impressed.

And who in the world could sit still to this one ...

A well I bless my soul
What’s wrong with me?
I’m itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I’m actin’ wild as a bug
I’m in love
I’m all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah

The King!..

ha ha cheers and HAP-PY NEW YEAR!!!

My current instinctual-dance-inducer? Chris Cornell's Euphoria Morning.

Cornell's Godzillian tenor has always been one of the true wonders of this rock & roll age. It sounds like nothing so much as the roar of a fallen soulman who punched, scratched and kicked his way out of some holy-roller church basement to grow punk-rock fangs, conquer the world and then cry about it later.

Rolling Stone dot com.

Any disco tune from the late '70s or classic rawk from the '70s and early '80s(see cringe-worthy sampler below)

"Hot Stuff" - Donna Summer
"Funkytown" - Lipps Inc.
"Rasputin" - Boney M (?)
"Gimme Gimme" - ABBA
"Ballroom Blitz" - The Sweet
"Jenny 867-5309" - Tommy Tutone
"I Want You to Want Me" - Cheap Trick
"Don't Bring Me Down" - ELO

Those are all tunes that I danced to at summer camp when I was 12 or that I bought on those famous K-Tel vinyl albums...ah, the good ole days of cheesy rock!

The only performer today that gets me moving is Joan Osborne. She's great!

Also "Dancing In The Streets" but I can't remember who it was by - maybe Martha and the Vandellas, perchance? Some of the old Stones stuff really floats my boat, too. And Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, most of the Motown stuff from 1959 - 1972. Showing my age, I suppose.

I've got two CCR greatest hits albums - I don't think there's a bad song on either of them. God, I miss Creedence Clearwater Revival.
