Love Shack, Baby

Be honest. You know there are songs that make you need to dance. Okay, maybe you’re like Studly Doright and NEVER need to dance, but if you’re anything like me certain songs can almost literally pull you out of your seat and onto the floor.

Love Shack by the B-52’s is one such song for me, and since it has the word “love” in the title, it qualifies for special mention in one of my February posts. Maybe you have a few “must dance” songs. Let’s compare choices.

Damn, that’s a fun song.

I have special dance moves to accompany Love Shack. Unfortunately, no one has ever captured them on film, but trust me. They’re epic.

Peace and love shack, baby.

  1. BTO’s Takin’ Care of Business, dancing and stomping on the Admiral in 1974 docked at the Port of St. Louis on the Mississippi River in 1974. When I hear it I have to break out! There are so many songs I don’t know where to start! ShortsSandalsNoSocks is not a dancing kinda guy… sadly.

  2. MJ, with Beat It comes to mind right away, but there are many others on my spotify list.
    Alanah Myles with a sexy, blues-y Black Velvet, or maybe AC DC with Girls Got Rhythm…but geez, I was a child of the 70’s so there’s disco. Enough said.

  3. There are few songs that don’t make me want to dance! Or at least tap my toes. And often sing along. Just the other day I was at the gym and “Shut Up and Dance With Me” came on and I started singing along and so wanted to dance. Lately anything by the Black Eye Peas gets me going and anything Latin makes my feet start to salsa. But Love Shack by the B52s is definitely a get-you-on-your-feet kind of song. Your post made me smile.

  4. I’m a sucker for almost anything with a really great baseline or danceable beat. One of my favorite genres of music is dance/club from pretty much any decade. That said, if Jive Talkin’ starts playing and Hubby is anywhere around, it becomes and impromptu dance party where we both get stupid, but apparently still look like we know what we’re doing (hint… we really don’t!)

      1. We get exceptionally stupid while doing it, but we have so much fun! We’ve only ever done it twice in public, which is so rare for me to get up the guts to do that, but it was hilarious to see the expressions on some people’s faces.

      2. 😊 One Studly and I did a clumsy jitterbug at a Christmas party. We lived in North Dakota at the time and they all thought we were awesome. Seeing as how Studly has two very left feet that cracked us up.

      3. It’s really amazing what some people will look at and think is good. My Hubby is so not a dancer, but is pretty good at following my crazy. Apparently that looked a lot like we taken lessons to a few people that watched us the first time. lol!
