If you haven’t seen an OK Go video, then you are in for a treat. These videos are super clever! Take a few moments this morning to appreciate some fanciful videos, listen to some good dance music, and get up and start moving. The thing about OK Go, they don’t spare any creativity when it comes to representing their music. Have fun today! It’s Saturday!
There is a reason why this video has over 53 million views!
And this is just plain fun!
Here are a few fun things to entertain your Saturday . . . music, Legos, book!

It’s Saturday! And it’s time to dance, people!
Dance like you did as a young’un. Just go for it! Shake it, move it, groove it!
Life is lively event. Seize the movement.
Sometimes all it takes to get you moving is a pair of dancing shoes. Put them on and start moving!
“Thank you for letting us be ourselves.”
“Celebrate good times! Come on!”
“When you wish upon a star . . . dreams will take you very far.”
I love Saturday morning dance time!
It’s time for some Dance Tune Boxcar! Boxcar . . . you know the game. The game where you recite compound words and the next person has to think of a new word that starts with the tail end of your compound word: MoleHill. HillTop. TopGun. GunBarrel. Barrelhead . . . and on the frivolity goes until someone says something like HeadScratcher. Then you are cooked. How many compound words can you think of that start with Scratcher_____ ? Game over!
Some of you played it at summer camp or at those fun Nerd Parties where, rather than sneaking booze out of the parents’ liquor cupboard, you played word games like Telephone, Scrabble, Mad Libs, and Boxcar. [I think you can guess which category I fell into.]
Here is some Boxcar dance music for your lively Saturday morning. Have fun dancing today! If you can stop yourself from hopping up and cutting the rug . . . I don’t know . . . maybe you need to turn the volume up. 🙂
This Saturday’s Dance Boxcar: The Twist –> Twist & Shout –> Shout!
Chubby Checker could really shake it!
Twist and Shout
This song song was originally recorded by the Top Notes. Such a great song! I had to include two covers of this song . . . one for style and the other for audience appreciation!
I don’t know anyone who can keep still to “Shout!” . . . truly. Can’t you feel your feet tapping? I can’t count the dance floors where the entire crowd was doing nothing other than pogo-ing up and down because there was no space to do anything else.
The Isley Brothers had it going on! Check out their moves!
Life is short. Dance like you mean it.
Never miss a chance to dance. Never.
It’s Saturday. If you have the day off, dance. If you are on your way to work, dance.
Dancing — guaranteed — will make a fun and positive difference in your day!
The Unseen Words Project wishes you a day of happy dancing.
You’re looking good, people! Really good!
When was the last time you just stood up in your office or your living room or your kitchen and started to dance because you just had to?
Well, today is the perfect day for it. Get out your Saturday morning dance shoes. Twist and shout and move around the room and have some fun.
Or when was the last time you dug out a pair of heels and went dancing at some honky tonk with that crazy-good band that sticks to the great dance covers? The band that plays Aretha, Stevie Wonder, and Coldplay. Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, and Earth, Wind & Fire. Grand Funk Railroad. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. The kind of music that speaks directly to some intimate and rhythmic part of you that tells you that you just have to dance.
The kind of songs that you can’t help but sing along with. Someone told me once that if you succumb to peer pressure and find yourself up on the stage with a karaoke mic in your hand, pick Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline. It is guaranteed that you won’t be singing alone by the time you get to the chorus.
Wherever you are, turn on some music and dance. It is good for you in so many ways. Movement clears your chakras and inspires happiness. It limbers you up and gets you moving in ways that everyday life pretty much ignores. It instills grace and improves flexibility. It can also reduce stress. And it’s pretty difficult to be dancing to some awesome music and not smile. Maybe even impossible.
Life is a lively event, and it sure is quick. Do yourself a favor and do some dancing today. This mashup will definitely get you moving! These dancers have got some serious moves!
