HAHAHA!!!

I saw this thread, spent .01 seconds trying to think of a song to add (before I had opened it),
and settled on "You Shook Me All Night Long." I figured I was gonna be faced with some pop/techno ditty, and that I was gonna have to argue my AC/DC selection. Guess I misjudged you

Madonna's 'music'... heh heh heh, what a poser song- but I have to agree with you, it's got a fairly strong beat.

My vote goes for In The Mood- that really old swing song. Oh, and Get Ready For This. One of the last dances I've been to was for a band, and that had been a parade song for us for two years running- have you ever seen anyone try and dance with a tuba down a street? it's funny.

The Modern Lovers, "Roadrunner."

Everyone said you needed only three chords to make great rock 'n' roll. Then Jonathan & Co., minimalists extraordinaire, showed you could do it with two.

Slim, you're thinking about the refrain:

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

It is only possible for me to dance in 11/3rds time .

As far as I know, there is only one song in that time signature and its by Genesis .

I don't like it .

11/3 time!?

Um... enlighten me as to what type of note (time value, that is) the "3" stands for.

Actually I think my confusion is that the album the song was originally released on was called Willie and the Poor Boys.

Brimful of Asha, of course:
----------------------------
Brimful of Asha - Cornershop

There's dancing behind movie scenes.
Behind the movie scenes - Sadi Rani.
She's the one that keeps the dream alive,
From the morning, past the evening, till the end of the light.
Brimful of Asha on the forty-five.
Well, it's a brimful of Asha on the forty-five.
Brimful of Asha on the forty-five.
Well, it's a brimful of Asha on the forty-five.
And singing illuminate the main streets and the cinema aisles.
We don't care about no government warning.
about that promotion of the simple life and the dams they are building.
Chorus
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Mine's on the forty-five...
Mohammed Ruffi - forty-five. Lata Mangeshka - forty-five.
Solid state radio - forty-five. Ferguson Mono - forty-five.
Non public - forty-five.
Jacques Dutronc and the Bolan Boogies...
The Heavy Hitters and the chi-chi music...
All Indian radio - forty-five. Two in ones - forty-five.
Ovvo records - forty-five. Trojan records - forty-five.
Chorus
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Mine's on the forty-five...

7-7,000 piece orchestra set.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow mines on the RPM...
Chorus
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow, everybody needs a bosom.
Mine's on the forty-five...

I should think that depends on what kind of dancing you want to do.

I am a complete metal fan - so dancing is kinda out. However, should I have to dance - I likethings like It's Raining Men, the Gerri Halliwell version. It's kinda catchy!
