Words on a Jar Lid

Dance the Night Away


There are some weeks . . . when Ten on Tuesday . . . makes me crazy!

(But in a good way. . .)

This week's topic, Ten Songs That Make You Want to Dance, pretty much puts me over The Edge.

Because. . .



How? Choose?

So I decided the simplest thing was to go back . . .

Scan 5

way back . . .

Scan 5 copy

to a time . . .


when these two . . .



K and T circa 1979

What got us out on the dance floor?

Why. . . Almost anything!  But, certainly, THESE songs did:

1 - Silver Threads and Golden Needles - Linda Ronstadt.  Being Wyoming kids, we were really great Country Swing dancers (we still are, actually!).


2 - Fire on the Mountain - Marshall Tucker Band.  Ditto.


3 - China Grove - Doobie Brothers.  And, because we were 70s kids, the Doobies could always get us up and dancing!


4 - Brick House - Commodores.  Definitely got our groove on with this one!


5 - Night Fever - BeeGees.  Oh, yeah.  We were Right There . . . in the midst of Disco Fever!


6 -Da Ya Think I'm Sexy - Rod Stewart.  Okay.  So Tom wasn't really a fan of this song, but me and my college friends had a GREAT time with this one!


7 -Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry.  Still makes me dance . . .


8 - Miss You - Rolling Stones.  Get a little attitude goin', y'know?


9 -Heart of Glass - Blondie.  Pure fun.


10 -YMCA - Village People.  Because . . . of course.


How about YOU?  What songs make YOU dance?

Miss You! I'll be singing it all day! Great list...the 70's...a special time! ;-)


How could I forget the BeeGees? I left them off my list!


I love when you post old photos of you and Tom. You guys were BABIES! Great list and at least I know all of the songs on this one!


Shake Your Bootyyy!


You two were très hip!! I knew you'd have a great list of songs! Miss You is my fave!


I Hope You (still) Dance. :D


you crack me up! this was a serious trip down memory lane, and I enjoyed every step.


I am so not a dancing person...
