Speaking of funk...I have to mention the Funk Brothers. Although this is not really considered a song for dancing, it's my favorite from the movie...Standing in the Shadows of Motown.

Her voice simply blows me away.

Another song that reflects my love of oldies. The original song "Quizás, Quizás, Quizás" was written by a Cuban songwriter in 1947. This song was recorded over the world, with lyrics rewritten in many languages. Doris Day recorded the following in 1964.

OK, Mardi Gras is this coming Tuesday, so it's time to get up off that couch and dance! Here's some great Mardi Gras music to get you moving.

This will mean nothing to anyone but me... using this as a bookmark.

The Meddiebempsters is/are an augmented octet that has been a icon in my college for 75 years. Two of my frat brothers were members in the late fifties. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowdoin_College
One is in this video. They travel all over the world giving concerts every summer and are a standard at the Boston Pops. These are the songs that bring a tear to my eye... Things like this become more important when ya get older.

BTW.. this took place in the Studzynski Hall... a $15 million makeover of the swimming pool where I lived (scholarship room) from 1955 to 1958.

No lie. Stevie had the guts to express his opinions during a very volatile time, the talent to write and perform that tune, and was hip enough to get the Jackson 5 to do nothing but sing "do da wop" on the original recording.

Ah, and Los Lobos are no slouches either.

Think this might be better that the original version. Check out the cheesy haircuts, moves and outfits. Jeez. Had a good hook though.

The soul man is a favorite of mine, especially at the beginning, Dan Aykroyd nearly floating.

When I was in graduate school, I used to teach classes one semester at 11am and 2pm. These were to students who were not in my area, and at another end of campus. So I'd walk down there, do the 11 one, then go to a cafeteria and study or try to meet girls, then go over to the ice arena where they would rent you skates for a quarter and you could glide around for an hour. One day, I was gliding and this came on over the loudspeakers. I swear, I could barely stay upright because the music was so good.

King Harvest's Dancing in the Moonlight is one of the grooviest, make you want to dance naked, songs on the planet. Has been shown to make a recently expired person tap their toes. This song is on a frequent rotation in our hospital department and patients of all ages LOVE it.

The above referenced Stevie song has some of the most biting lyrics in pop music: "well we are sick and tired of hearing your song, telling how you are gonna change right from wrong" ....sing it and shake that head Stevie!
