I was listening to the radio last night, when suddenly what I thought was Tom Petty's American Girl came on (it was actually The Stokes singing Last Nite, which sounds A LOT like American Girl, by the way).

It's one of those songs where I have to stop everything and move - the music just gets into your veins. The same thing happens whenever I hear Bowie's Modern Love or The Door's Peace Frog. I can't sit still!

Anyone else have a got-to-move song of their own?

I can't think of any music that doesn't make me dance! Well, maybe some hip-hop (sorry Viv!) or rap, but most everything else is dancing music!

Do you sing along while you dance???

Most definitely!

Oh yeah,
All right,
Take it easy, baby,
Make it last all night.
She was
An American Girl...

No need to be sorry Isa. Hip hop music definitely makes me want to get up and dance. But I like and can dance to all types of music, except for country western; square-dancing is just not my thing.

the title of this thread reminds me of a great book that i love so much.
it's called The DAnce, by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. there is a poem in the beginning and i believe she actually uses the exact phrase "i want to know what makes you get up and dance".
neat!

I would have to agree with Isa.

And I LOVE to sing. Anyone like to sing in the shower? I do! It's kind of hard to dance in there though, but I do my best.

All the time - and I dance too, most of the time without falling!

Any of you ever heard of Soca music? Everyone here just has to get up and wine ( a caribbean type of dancing- basically girating your hips!) to Soca! Its fantastic!
