Music with dance magic!
OK, in honor of my just dancing around my apartment like a sweaty madwoman to Kodachrome, howsabout y'all tell us what songs can you not resist dancing to? Ones that are just so infectious you at LEAST can't avoid bopping a bit, and if you're alone just have to full-out dance. Kodachrome by Paul Simon is one of the most powerful for me. I just cannot NOT dance when it comes on. And I can't not smile either. :)
hee! i totally just made an enormous itunes playlist called "crazy underwear dance."

"Come on Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners is a huge one for me.
Also "Dragostea din Tei" by O-Zone (AKA The Romanian Song).
I'm sure there are a lot more but those are the most obvious to me.

Ooh, seconds on "When I'm Up"
And I'm gonna throw out "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Deep Blue Something. It's a constant car-dancing song when I hear it.

I simply can't resist dancing around to most TMBG songs, but especially "Damn Good Times" and their cover of "Yeh Yeh!"
Kat Kunz · 10 years, 11 months ago
not *exactly* TMBG, but Mono Puff's "Backstabbing Liar" gets me every time.
also R.E.M.'s "Stand," but that's just because I like doing a piss-poor job of mimicking the dance in the video.
oh, i love doing the "stand" dance. and doing any sort of stipey dance.

is this thread title getting "dance magic dance" in anyone else's head?
you remind me of the babe!
well it didn't until NOW. Jeez, woman. And I don't even own the soundtrack to purge my brain.
yeah, I DID. But I scrapped all my tapes in a move because I was JUST SO SICK OF TAPES OMG. :) So I need to get it on CD eventually.

There is a way you can transfer tapes to the computer. All you need is a dual prong headphone jack-like thing that they have at Radio Shack, a cassette Walkman (or any tape player will do as long as it has a headphone jack), the tape you wanna transfer, and some program (any good freeware?) that will capture the audio coming in. Finding a good freeware program that'll clear up the background hiss seems to be the hardest problem to solve.
yes. but then again, "magic dance" is way up there on my list of "songs with dance magic."

I'm no Michael Jackson fan per se, but every time I hear "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" I lose it. Mamma-say-mamma-sah-mamakusah!
Oh, and whenever I'm at a sporting event or large group activity with my friend Graham, he tends to get everyone around him excited during the intro to YMCA, and then, when the chorus comes around, he messes up by shouting "C!" first, and then breaks down in tears. I think it's pretty funny.

My friend from college made up a drunken dance to "Snowman" that he swears he saw in a dream....oh those college dayz....so now every time i listen to that CD (granted that I'm not in my car) I have to do the "Snowman Dance"
Other must dance to songs include "Only the Good Die Young" "My Life" and "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel and "Send me On My Way" by Rusted Root

I think Josh Rouse has talent. Everyone here should check him out.
