Your Favourite To Dance To

Recommended Posts

Simple question:

If you love dancing - and don't we all? - then what's your all time or current fave to dance to? Which sound has it all?

At Kidderminster Glades on Friday I nearly passed out after dancing to Joe Hicks, Don't it make you feel funky. Something about the tempo, the beat, those tasteful drum fills, just makes me want to show off.

What sound turns your heartbeat up?

Could name so many that I 'have' to dance to.....suppose Toby Legend comes to mind cos of the lyrics, the emotion etc.

Currently love Coco and Ben..... a modernish sound, which I find completely irresistable ;-)

I normally enjoy dancing (if you can call it that) to midtempo tracks, but the last time a friend of mine played THE MONTCLAIRS - HUNG UP ON YOUR LOVE at the Soulnight in N¼rnberg, I danced my soul out, and had to sit down some minutes after it. FANTASTIC !!!!!!

IMO the flip is probably a 'better' 'soul record', but for a good dance "don't it make you feel funky" does it for me! :lol:

My absolute favorite song to dance to right now is Ritchie Adams "I Can't Escape From You". The tempo is perfect and the song and production are both pure class. I never tire of hearing it and if it should come on, I'll drop everything to rush to the floor.

Right now "the floor" for me is my living room, which has a nice old wooden floor, with a 8'x8' area for dancing, and old records are everywhere! Best venue in the USA.

There's been too many over the years, always get a buzz when a record comes on and someone comes up and says "I remember you dancing to this"

Nowadays, the slower the better. Funeral March?

Sandi Sheldon - you're gonna make me want you.

Always gets my heartbeat up. So much so, whatever is played next, I still have to sit down and get my breath back.

OFF TOPIC Slightly

I'll say this, Ian Levine gets a hell of a lot of bad press, but seeing her perform this at the Rocket was a highlight of all my years listening to Northern Soul. He has to take credit for getting some great acts to the Rocket. Its just a shame for the acts that he brought too much baggage for the majority.

Please dont turn this into another anti IL thread.

Slower ones I know, but so great to dance to.

If you had told me 30 years ago that I would be dancing to these sort of sounds I would have laughed my amphetamine fuelled head off. :D:):D

Oh and "I'm gone" of course :)

I gotta get up to lots of tunes, but currently cannot sit down when 'Better to have and not need'. Is that the title? just love the beat. Definately need to sit down after that one. (for a minute anyway!)

Also bursting my eardrums in the car with 'Right Track' and 'Cut your motor off' (and yes, both hands off the steering wheel at the handclaps!.)
