  • Songs that make you happy/want to dance

    Back before Christmas there was a thread on songs that make you cry - well, I wondered which songs do the opposite for you, and make you feel happy and bubbly, or you just have to dance around to?

    It can be a bit of an 'Eeyore-ish' time of year, so I thought some uplifting music might be a good idea, plus I had an ipod for my birthday, and speakers for xmas, so I am shamelessly looking for some good song to upload!

    Here's one of my favourites, to start the ball rolling - Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and the Waves.
    Life is brief and very fragile, do that which makes you happy.

        Songs that get me dancing inside (I'm a dude, so don't dance outwardly - except for Bean of course).

        Birdhouse In Your Soul - They Might Be Giants
        The Safety Dance - Men Without Hats (great 80's video)
        End of the World - REM
        There's No Other Way - Blur
        Today - The Smashing Pumpkins
        Paradise City - Guns 'n' Roses
        A Day Like This - Elbow
        Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
        Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack

        Countless others, but I shan't bore you with any more.

        Practise makes us a little better, it doesn't make us perfect.

          It can make you smile and cry

              You can add Devils Haircut to mine (infact the whole of Odelay) and Fool's Gold 9:54 of course.

                For my sins I will admit to being prone to exhibitionism on the dance floor. Don't know one tune from another and never listen to music. However when in party mood I am known to rock around the clock. The next day I am full of remorse and think OMG what am I like? The music just blows me away.

                So anything that has rhythm does it for me.

                              Just what is it that possesses us to gyrate and posture with abandon?
