a chance to dance (the last dance) - part four

So, won't you join me for this fine day and celebrate the chance to dance by yourself?

When you get home today pick out one of your favorite peppy-perky songs of your adolescence, ideally one with something affirmative to say, and dance yourself silly. Just let yourself go and express yourself till you have shaken away every annoying moment of the day.

Having also listened (and danced) to Donna Summer's Last Dance by happy-chance this morning, I am also reminded of those great movies during my teen years that were popular at the pinnacle of the disco era, and made Saturday afternoons with Danny Tario on Dance Fever all the more meaningful: Thank God It's Friday, Car Wash, and of course, Saturday Night Fever.

Thus, I'll suggest that perhaps you can choose a song from one those soundtracks.

Here are some respective suggestions—plus a few extras:

I Will Survive, Gloria Gayner
More Than A Woman, Bee Gees
Last Dance, Donna Summer
Car Wash, Rose Royce
September, Earth, Wind & Fire
That's The Way I Like It, K.C. And The Sunshine Band
Rock With You, Michael Jackson
Ain't No Stopping Us Now, McFadden & Whitehead
I'm Every Woman, Whitney Houston
Soak Up The Sun, Sheryl Crow
You Gotta Be, Des'ree

happy dancing, l.m

You Gotta Be by Des'ree

Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry

You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together

All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Herald what your mother said
Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
my oh my heh, hey
