Day Six of our challenge asks me to post a song that makes me want to dance. A lot of songs make me want to dance. I enjoy dancing, for all that I’m not very good at it. 🙂 But the first song to pop into my head is this joyful number from the B-52’s 1989 album “Cosmic Thing”, so that’s my pick for today.
When I was younger and healthier, I’d put this on and turn the volume up and dance around my living room like mad, alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pq82YXcQWzk
I remember this one. I never danced to it, but I sure enjoyed it.
I’m pretty sure I nearly wore through my vinyl cope of “Hounds of Love”.
Seeing her perform The Ninth Wave was *amazing*
Annette Spirit Davis
What a band.
I’d be awful at this challenge because I can’t just pick one song to dance to. It seems Yes is the soundtrack to my life and I’m okay with this. https://youtu.be/IYLvYdH06nY
Lauren: I take the point of this challenge to share music. I’m not even trying to pick the single best track for each option. I just ponder the question, see what jumps into my mind, and then share. So don’t feel constrained. 🙂
My friend Nick introduced me to Vulfpeck, and yeah, they’re a seriously great band. 🙂
Excellent. I try to spread the Vulf gospel whenever and wherever I can. ?
I like you, Lauren. You’re my new best funky friend.
Vulfpack 4 lyfe!!
Rob Wynne Vulf’s newest album came out two days ago and it’s so damn good! https://vulfpeck.bandcamp.com/album/mr-finish-line
Oooh, thanks for the headsup
I’VE BEEN LISTENING TO IT NONSTOP
IT’S SO GOOD
I’ve danced to this one professionally: https://youtu.be/AFSx9fE1qJ8
Dancing on the Ceiling -- Lionel Richie
This one’s for a different type of dancing.
I got to see Love and Rockets live back in the late 1990s. Great show.
This one is fun to make small children dance to, all you have to do is give them a bunch of fluttery scarves and let them go…
Lots of good choices from the B-52’s catalog. Roam is great and topical!

It even comes with dance steps! 😀
Ah, my clubbing days 🙂

The go-to tune for my aerobics dance class in the 80s. 😀
