This is an interesting one, Brian at Pavement Runner described them as “songs that make you want to move your feet...while your moving your feet”. I don’t have a lot of dance music per se but I do have a lot of music that makes me want to move.
Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (Mine will most always be older than that!)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year. (Harder for me)
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category - any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.
Artist: Depeche Mode (1989)
Title: Personal Jesus
Side Note: Before husband, kids, full time jobs and mini van, I used to go out and this is the type of music we danced to. When it comes on when I’m running, I’m instantly faster (and younger).
Artist: Neon Trees (2011)
Title: Everybody Talks
Side Note: This is a pretty new addition to my playlist. It may not be a classic dance song but it has a great beat and puts a spring in my step.
Something to Consider
Artist: The Autumn Isles (2008)
Title: It’s Been Awhile
Side Note: A fantastic song from Austrailian Band, The Autumn Isles. I first heard this song online on the Aussie radio station Triple J. It never fails to get me moving! Sorry, no video but here is a link to the song (try it, it is worth it!)
