Party songs. Friday November 13, 2015

This morning I awoke early with the 80's song Agadoo rolling round my head.

So I decided to get up and play party songs before work. I logged in to YouTube and played Agadoo by Black Lace, Locomotion by Little Eva, Lets Dance by Chris Montez, Star Trekkin by The Firm and a couple of other songs. I even danced to Locomotion in my lounge. I was truly having fun and went off to work with a smile on my face and in my heart.

What songs would do it for you? Or even better, put some tunes into your heart.

You're welcome Barbara :D

Yes indeed. A good idea.
Labi Siffre songs. We used to dance around our student flat to some of those! Remember it as if it was yesterday. And the Grease LP. And Jeepster/ Tyrannasaurus Rex, good disco one.
And also a lot since those days! Aaaahhhh! Sigh of contentment here.

Off the top of my head......
Always look on the bright side of life
Dancing Queen
Star Trekkin(such a good one)

And a really, really good online karaoke site, where I can join in the song with lyrics send basking included. Love it.

This is exciting sharing uplifting song titles. I must go through everyone's lists and play them all :D

Alex Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 7:26am

"Send basking"? "And backing".......

Morning Dawn!
Ahh! Too many to mention! I have a feel good playlist to perk me up while power walking. Haven't used it recently, as the autumn colours have been so beautiful, but no reason why I can't play it at home!

Carwash (Sharktale Mix) - Christina
Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson
Bang Bang - Will I Am
Starships - Nicky Minaj
Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toez - (K.I.G) Street Nation
Holiday - Dizzee Rascal
Pound de Alarm - Nicky Minaj

To name but a few! Definately not to everyones taste, but they do it for me!
Even writing them down has pepped me up! Have a boppy day if you're up for it guys! LP :))

I have always been a big fan of dance type music catching disco when it was just coming in and for my 40th my wife bought me a pair of turntables so I could rescue all my old 12 inch singles from the loft and play them. I have always felt that part of the attraction is the fact it is so uplifting and never fails to lift my mood. Shallow maybe but brilliant therapy! Rupert

Mary Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 2:40pm

Hey - Rupert! Lovely to see you here again!!! Miss you when you're not here.

Norman Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 8:36am

My brother and sister-in-law bought me an MP3 player for Xmas a couple of years ago. I decided to fill it with all those one-off hits that aren't elsewhere in my collection. "Grocer Jack," "Something in the Air." I don't dance though, I'd get funny looks on the bus...

Alex Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 12:55pm

Oh my goodness.....such Similarity! In the past while, I've sought out and tracked down(no pun intended, but I like it so shall love it)I think my most obscure one was from the late sixties, Italy's entry for the Eurovision song contes: "L'amor e un attimo" by Massimo Ranieri. I was ridiculously chuffed to find it - thought I was definitely not going o find it. I have a sudden urge to get "Im the Urban Spaceman" by the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band".... What a delightfully uplifting and fun post this is, Dawn.....thank you Alex

I was just wondering how Rupert and Norman were. Stranger things have happened I suppose! I used to play Madonna loudly in my car on the way into work. I was a different person for half an hour until I had to metamorphose (not very successfully) when I pushed those heavy doors into my work place. But It's All Over Now. (Jul)

Hi Dawn- does singing count?. I do that every morning as I am learning to sing. Just finished learning the lyrics for Vincent( Starry Starry night.... remember?) because its a relatively slow song allowing me to get at the right notes in time.

susan Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 10:38am

Hi Dawn. Music is always on in my house. Can't possibly pick favourites--r&r, r&b, jazz, funk and soul, classical. Love it all. Always wonder how Desert Island Disc guests manage. Dancing to party music in the morning is a fabulous therapy. Thanks! xx

I really like Def Leopard and Bon Jovi - two albums in particular. My mum had a brain injury when she was younger which resulted in her having very poor short term memory. as a result she would play the same songs/albums over and over when i was a child. she would play these two albums loudly in the car and we would sing along together - very happy memories. I am now a big fan of Ben Howard too - if you like folky type music look him up he is so talented!

Dawn Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 11:28am

Hi Everyone, must go, but will be back later to collect more song titles and thank you all for sharing :D love Dawn xx

Rushing about (despite foot) dealing with workmen since before 8 a.m. Then Dawn's blog - all worries flew and I just magic-carpeted! Living in facing lodges (in UK)we had one of our wilder parties in the foundations of our new 'wing' (nothing to wreck). We were up earlier than neighbours, and we set Nancy Sinatra's 'These boots are made for walking' on permant re-play, loud, and it resonated against un-clad walls. A body of hungover men appeared - got them to move a huge lintel before they could protest then we re-started the party. Driving up a pass from France to Italy, to go through a tunnel, all the kids bellowing 'Lily the Pink'. An Italian guy called Drupi (one-hit wonder) with 'Vado Via' dancing under the stars in the middle of Sicily. Quantalemera sung by Sumatrans on Lombok. Not a party tune - but driving alone through Brittany in late November, brilliant day, sun-roof open, Kathleen Ferrier 'Blow the Wind Southerly'. And, from war socials, the last 'smooch' (as an 8 year old thought it soppy) but, for soldiers home on leave, it was 'Always'. And the theme in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's, forgotten it. Oh yes, Moon River. The Lambeth Walk, March of the Mods (most of you are too young to have even heard of them). Ca suffit - thanks Dawn, marvellous spirit lifter.

Alex Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 12:57pm

Gardener, I know them all :) .....and March of the Mods is now earworming me! Alex

Mary Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 2:43pm

Co-incidence, my brother and I were just talking about the track Star Trekking yesterday! I will find it and play it away. Also They're Coming to Take Me Away by Napoleon XIV. What fun!

g Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 4:41pm

Anything by Major Lazer but especially GET FREE , Avici Hey Brother , And when the saints go marching ... anything by Armstrong , J.J.Cale ... and many many more... Thank you so much for reminding me of the power of music

Alice Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 6:22pm

Short but soooo sweet! Well done Dawn xx

Frankie Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 7:12pm

Bon Jovi, Living on a prayer - usually sung in the car at top volume with younger daughter
Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves
Billy Joel Only the good die young ...
Thanks for the reminder Dawn ... too easy to forget the uplifting power of music. Frankie

The Gardener Fri, Nov 13th 2015 @ 7:49pm

Surprised Dawn hasn't been swamped! The Drupi song I heard on 'Muzak' in a boutique somewhere in france, thought 'must have it'. We were in Taormina, very sophisticated resort in Sicily - we toiled up the hill to an enormous music shop - served by a friendly but extremely young and beautiful girl. I tentatively said I'd danced to this music 30 years ago, was it still available? She opened a drawer 'how many?' Like asking for Piaf in France and Beatles in UK. Above you are talking about MP3 and You Tube - unless I sit and swap sides on radio, or change discs my husband can't listen to music - can find no device he can easily use. I get something good on France Musique, then it turns to a dirge. Anything classical often starts with a bang or near silence, he immediately wants it turned up or down, within 5 minutes it's wrong again. Next house I'll have to install Muzak. Most unloved party song 'The Birdie song?'.

Bring Me Sunshine, sung by Morecambe & Wise. Thank you Dawn! Xx
