This past week' s Happy Book adventure was to dance - To find those songs that make you just want to drop every thing and dance.
A number of years ago I had made a tape of songs that I would put on and dance to, sometimes for 40 minutes at a time. Dancing was my way to exercise, to release stress. The past few years I have gotten away from that love of dancing and I dance only rarely now.
My favourite show is "So You Think You Can Dance", both the Canadian and American versions. I suppose in another life, dancing would have been a big part of my life.
I moved to music a bit this week, I sang in the car but I really didn't let loose and dance. I have been feeling unfit and tired for a while.
Then I refound the wedding entrance dance and I could feel the joy in all the wedding party and I knew I had to get that feeling back. When I made my ""tree of Intentions" yesterday, I had to place dance on it. I resolve to make sure I dance till I feel better!
Some of my favourite dance songs are:
"Flashdance... What A Feeling" ~ Irene Cara
"Party for Two" ~ Shania Twain
"Jive Talking" ~ BeeGees
"Dancing Queen" ~ ABBA
"Billie Jean" ~ Michael Jackson
"YMCA" ~ Village People
"Stayin' Alive" ~ Bee Gees
"I Gotta Feeling" ~ Black Eyed Peas
"Celebration" ~ Kool and the Gang
"Disco Inferno" - The Tramps (1978)
There are so many more but this is a start! I'm off to make a CD - I've been inspired! Thanks Jamie!
