Say Hey

The thing about dancing, other than the part where I am bad at it, is that I love it. My favorite kind of dancing is the kind that people can't see me doing, and most often takes place in between my kitchen and our office. Lots of room. Clothing optional. Kidding!! Sorta. Don't get any ideas, I always close my blinds. I am not afraid to pump up the volume in my car to the right song, and my kids LOVE IT. Okay, not always. One time when I was driving down a street near my house I was PUMPED, and I was showing it, and I didn't care about any other drivers judging me because what do I care? I'm not going to see them again. Unless you are my neighbor, who was riding next to me in her Explorer. She honked, I looked over - BUSTED! I waved, and she commented later to me at the bus stop about my moves. I think she was a little bit jealous, and I can't blame her. With one hand on the wheel baby, I can BUST IT!

Anyway, I have made a resolution of sorts that I am going to dance to one song every day. Better than anti-depressants, I say. Always on the lookout for more variety, I heard a song on the radio this morning that had my head bobbing and had I not been in the car, I would have launched into the Running Man. Serious. I wrote down enough of the lyrics so that I could look up the song when I got home, and not only did I find it on iTunes but they have the video on YouTube. And because I'm a giver, and I think you should dance more too, I've downloaded it for you here. It's like Ziggy Marley meets MC Hammer, and it's rad. Don't feel bad if you find yourself doing the Running Man in your living room while you listen, it happens to the best of us. Feel free to follow up all your comments about how you LOVE THIS SONG with other dance music suggestions. Now that I'm doing this every day, I need to expand my repertoire!

That is an awesome song, thanks for sharing, I really like Michael Franti.

It really did make me want to dance but I was ultimately too lazy to get off the couch.

I LOVE that one! Thanks for sharing it.

I have a mix CD that I pop in to clean with, it has all the "peppy songs" I like.

One on it that is really good is "Thank You" by Boyz2Men.

Hey - I kinda like that one! I have GOT to get out more. I have nothing to recommend!

Cool song! I've become very musically withdrawn... Thanks for sharing it. It looks like "clothing optional" was in place for some of the people in the video, too. :)

My kids were boppin' at the breakfast table. Great song, and nice music video too. Sorry, there was no running man though...

I can totally see you bustin moves all alone in your living room. I think that's a good idea to do this at least once a day. I'll be sure to let you know if I hear any tunes I think you could bop to.

Rachel's doing FSD - Favorite Song of the day - on her blog. Maybe you could pick up some good ones there. She does amaze me with what she finds sometimes.

BTW, I downloaded this one for my WM.

Blur - Song 2, it gets me going every time!

Great Song! I would worry a bit if that guy were dancing and shaving my head at the same time, like in the video.

Weapon of choice by Fatboy slim is great to dance to. Watch the video first.

I like to dance too. I find it a very effective way to embarrass my children.

I busted out in the Running Man and the Cabbage Patch. That's right.

Lady Gaga's 'Just Dance' comes on the radio and I can't help but car dance.
