And if you think YOU might like dancing, but feel a bit timid or self conscious; I might be able to help! For your dancing education and pleasure, I'm supplying you with some of my favorites with a bit of instruction with each. Don't even THINK about how you look. Trust me. You look FABULOUS!
Just play along and you'll see what I mean!
1. Word Up by Cameo
To Do: Hit the play button and then just stand in front of your computer. Don't intentionally move, just see what parts of your body start moving when the music plays! I defy you to listen to this and NOT move!! And around the 3:40 mark is when you may even come unglued! (Telling on myself here!)
2. To Be Real by Cheryl Lynn
To Do: Okay, with this one, it's all about the lip sync! You don't just listen to or dance to this song....you PERFORM it!! Your turn! (Doing some desk dancing with this one!)
3. Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People
To Do: Okay, with this one.....don't even get up out of your chair. As I'm sitting listening to this one, it's all in the shoulders....a variation on the shimmy, you know what I mean? Just get your shoulders into the beat and BAM! You're there!
4. Got to Give it Up by Marvin Gaye
To Do: This one's all about the feet! It just makes you want to shuffle a bit!
or maybe this'll show you what I mean!
5. September by Earth Wind & Fire
To Do: I've saved the best for last! The greatest band EVER! I got to see them in concert with my sweet husband a couple of summers ago and I've got to tell you: It was an almost spiritual experience! You don't HEAR EWF's music. You FEEL it. You EXPERIENCE it! But here. See for yourself and this is a total dance free for all!
Okay, I know I said that was the last one, and it was as far as the dance lesson. HOWEVER, one of my favorite lines from a song is from Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest.
"We like our fun and we never fight
You can't dance and stay uptight
It's a supernatural delight"
I wholeheartedly agree!!
