30 Day Song Challenge - Day Three ... A song that makes you dance
Years ago when I were a non-fibro'ed dj, I would pretty much dance to anything - banging a stick on a tin tray, the rhythm of a washing machine on spin cycle, dogs howling - anything at all. But now my energy is severely depleted I'm a touch more choosey with how I expend it.
I thought about a few tracks from my dj days which moved me. "Cubik" by 808 State is one that used to do it for me, and I like a bit of Basement Jaxx. But in the end the choice could only be one thing, as it still makes me shake my booty, even if I may fall over when doing it. "Jump In The Line" by Harry Belafonte. I can't help but break my face into a massive grin every time I hear this song. These days my only dance partner is Otto the guide dog (who will jump up and let me hold his paws to dance), as Darryl would rather stick his dick in a blender than jig about to anything. But even though the song invites you to jump in de line and shake it all the time (what you should shake is up to you, but as Penny from "Dirty Dancing" said, "Come on ladies ! God wouldn't have given you maracas if he didn't want you to shake 'em !!"), you can enjoy it just as well by yourself :)
