RANDOM MUSICAL THOUGHTS

I'm working while listening to the music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk -- maybe the first great American composer.
His grand tarantelle is about the only piece of music that makes me want to dance (don't tell my wife who does not believe there is any such music). But a lot of his music gets me working in time to the beat -- I'm not sure there is any other composer or modern music I could say that of.

What music just makes you get up and dance?

jitterbug music from the '40s. But I wouldn't call what I do dancing. Maybe more like bouncing and rumbling along.

It's a toss up between

Johann Sebastian Bachs "Branderberg Concerto No. 2 in F"

and

"The Chicken Dance"

New wave 80's punk and ska music. And I don't think I'll ever tire of doing the "Time Warp."

Thank you, Alison. I'm not a dancer, but I don't know many people who can just sit there during Time Warp.

Can't wait to go to Reno in August (if i'm still here) so i can do the Time Warp again....

Couple of movie soundtracks:

"Dancing at Lughnasa," the music that got all the sisters dancing in the yard.

"Babe," the jazzed-up arrangement of Saint-Saens's Organ Concerto, with the old man cavorting around the house.

Good ol' Grateful Dead music.

Former members of which were Keith and Donna Jean Godchaux.

Coincidence? Perhaps.

I like to create my own mixes. If I'm making a CD to put me in a good mood, I'll include:

.38 Special, Journey, Boston, AC/DC, Heart, Three Doors Down, Bon Jovi, etc.

P.S. Pet Peeve - People who spell Benatar incorrectly.

Almost anything with a fast beat, if its danceable (sp) I like it. My fav would be bluesy rock. I wish I was in better health so I could take Ballroom dancing. An Ex & I once cleared the floor in a cabaret while Jiving & got a standing "O" at the end (this was about 1980 so I guess most youngsters couldn't jive by then), made my day. To those of you would think they can't dance, forget it, just get up & have fun. Good for the waistline, good for the soul

Good answers, Lodi.

Rock and roll is great to dance to, so is old school R&B, Motown music. Can't sit still when I hear it. Salsa music makes me want to dance also but I don't know the latin dances, just like the music.

Twist and Shout

And if they play "The Stripper," you don't wanna be there. (Again, picture Wilford Brimley...)

David Bowie and Cygnet Committee, that is the best song ever written, in my subjective opinion of course

I only dance the sardana.

So La Santa Espina http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ydig-BRggpU

It's one of the unofficial Catalan national anthems from the reign of Franco who forbid all forms of Catalan expression.

I dance with the woman that likes this music ... right now!

Barry ... I won't tell but really, dancing is not torture.
When no one is around and you have a mirror ... oh well, maybe its too late for old dogs.

What makes me put on my dancin' feet?
Jaaaaaaaaaaames Brown.

What makes me wish my feet were better dancers?
1930's/40's stuff - Count Basie, Mills Brothers, Cab Calloway and the like.

What makes my wife wish I'd sit down/go to the bar?
AC/DC

What makes me think I can dance better than everyone else?
Beer.
And the admiring/despairing glances of others. Often I get the two muddled up...

Martin - you're hilarious!

I'll dance to anything...I've been caught several times tap dancing to the rhythm of the copy machine!

I never understood how people can get up en masse when a certain song plays that sounds just like all the others to me! They all have a beat of some sort - or if they don't, I move into Modern Dance mode

Actually I hate the swaying and gyrating that pass for dancing in most bars. Give me a partner who can lead and some swing music and I'm in heaven!

Gottschalk was from New Orleans, originally, to go back to the first comment. Fun stuff for the heart and the soul, but not for the feet, at least not for me.

I don't dance, but if I did, Chopin waltzes or mazurkas would do the trick. Maybe Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring...perfect for dancers with two left feet.

For me it would be all classic rock and new country which are kind of similar. I love to do all kinds of ballroom dancing as well. Love to dance.
