He'p Me

I need every last lurker to comment and tell me what dance songs I NEED in my collection. I'm talkin' guaranteed ass-shakers. The goal is to create the superior-est playlist.

well ots of madge's stuff really but i am partial to that one


the last time i went dancing at like a proper club they played soldier girl by the polyphonic spree and people went nuts

groove is in the heart

here comes your man

and my absolute favorite, the bangles cover of hazy shade of winter

Alannah said...

good ideas, Carolyn. I saw the Polyphonic Spree in their hometown of Dallas a few years ago and it was an amazing show.

I really like songs with handclaps. What are some good songs I may have overlooked w/ handclaps?

Collective Heartburn said...

Oh there's a whole world of flamenco. Yuo can dub some Paco Peña with some drum and bass or whatever you kids are grooving to these days.

Collective Heartburn said...

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands. That's a good one.

Alannah said...

you just couldn't help yourself w/ that one, could you?

Check out what I found, though:

I'm gonna check songs with foot stamping and see what I can step to.

carolyn says said...

caetano veloso and gilberto gil fucking rule

ooh and tighten up by archie bell and the drells, i believe it has large amounts of hand clapping, if i remember correctly

Bryan said...

Throw a little angst in there with something from the Faint and go retro-obscure with "If I Only Had a Brain" by MC 900 Ft Jesus.

Alannah said...

Dang it...I like that "If I Only Had a Brain" song. Instead, at like 2am someone got a hold of my precious playlist and played "Tears Are Fallin'" by Kiss 4 times in a row.
