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!
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!
