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.”
Hello, Lovelies! Here is your Saturday dance music to get your groove grooving. And not wanting to disappoint, I have chosen videos that will guarantee some good laughs, too. When I watched these videos, I was helplessly laughing out loud. You’ve got to love some Tom Jones. And I am thinking that this is where Napoleon Dynamite likely got some inspiration for his moves. This is the kind of thing where you want someone to make it stop, yet you are riveted at the same time.
If you can take your eyes away from Tom’s dance moves, than start to bust a move yourself. Or better yet, try to imitate him as he shakes his thang. And make sure that you scroll down to catch the Soul Train dancers. Simply fantastic and sure to get you moving.
One thing I will say: Tom Jones was an amazing performer and had a fantastic singing voice. His dancing? I’m just going to say that he knew how to express joy with his dance moves!
The filming on this one is rough, but it’s well worth watching . . . you will see what I mean. It’s awesome!
This second video is just so good . . . the filming is much better and Tom really starts to bust a move at about 1:30. This is nothing short of hilarious (in all of the good ways of joy-filled hilarity).
You’ve got to love this guy’s energy! I want to bottle it and imbibe it!
Okay . . . I need to end on an even higher note here. You aren’t going to be able to stay still after watching these Soul Train dancers! I can see you now checking out the newspaper’s entertainment weekly for dance venues for tonight.
Everything about this . . . the music, the clothes, and the dance moves are the best! So beautiful! After watching this, I reallyreallyreally want to go dancing!
Go forth and make today a great dancing day.
Listen to the music and shake your thang!
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.
