Right now it's Vampire Weekend's 'Bryn', because I've discovered my 10 1/2 month old will dance with me!

She does a crazy little stiff shoulder shimmy that makes me tear up it's so damn cute.

Jody said...

Mine Are:

Gut Feeling ~ Devo
Red Hot Mama ~ Funkadelic
Judy Was a Punk ~ The Ramones

Hanna said...

Anything by Manu Chao...I vote for clandestino today

wordsandeggs said...

Michael Jackson: Rock With You
Pat Benatar: Love is a Battlefield (I always copy the dance in the video) :)
Kelly Clarkson: Since You Been Gone (you can't help but jump)

Claire said...

Shakira songs because I like to shake it. I would say I like to dance to Hips Don't Lie the best.

fancylinda said...

Around the holidays I like to dance to the Charlie Brown Christmas theme song.

carina said...

I'm all about the pop queens when it comes to booty shaking songs!

A few of my faves:
Madonna - Get Together
Britney Spears - Toxic
Beyonce - Crazy in Love

Great question and giveaway, Fiona!

Linda said...

I have to agree with Claire, Hips Dont Lie is a favourite
second is Coco Jamboo by Mr. President
third is Just Dance by Lady Gaga

AnnaVallance said...

I love Abba's Waterloo, Just Dance by Lady Gaga and anything by Neil Diamond.

CJD said...

Well, this is off the wall but I like to dance to Yaz "Bad Connection"
long story :)

Rosie said...

Anything by the Bee Gees! Yep, I'ma child of the 70's.

fanciful devices said...

Mamase mamasa mamamakusa!
Yeah, classic.
I just discovered this song "sleepyhead" by passion pit b/c of the ipod pixi commercials and the song makes me dance and tear up at the same time.
And Abba! Give Me a Man After Midnight. As for Sakira- She-Wolf has it all over that hips song.
But a favorite? That's like picking a favorite child if you had thousands of children.

Alison said...

Crazy in Love by Beyonce for sure. Love that booty shaking! Have tweeted at

sfer said...

No doubt: Gloria Gaynor's "I will survive". I feel totally sympathetic towards the guy in that movie, "In & Out", who couldn't help himself dancing to it (those of you who have seen the movie remember that scene, I'm sure!)


Natalie said...

Totally cheesy but I will always dance to anything by Van Morrison when played at a wedding. Moondance gets me every time!

lara said...

"I Confess" by The English Beat
"Holiday" by Madonna
"Naked Eye" by Luscious Jackson

Love your work!

Little C and Little J said...

It is a song by the Pogues, Fiesta. It starts out really slow so I joke around with my two year old that it is a really slow song and then when the pace picks up we bolt and run around the house frantically. It is great fun, especially on a rainy day.

Fiona Cartolina said...

Good morning! Great tunes ladies - I had no idea there were so many Shakira fans amongst my readers! I'd like to see videos of all those Shakira wanna be's!
Remember you can enter more than once if you blog or Tweet this giveaway!

BJ Lantz said...

Hands down, I have to say "Love Shack" by the B52's.

It is also a favorite of a girlie friend of mine who lives in NH (I'm in FL) and whenever either of us hears it, we call each other. Recently I was at an art retreat in NH, planning to visit her for a couple days at the end. I was so cold on the last day, I called her in the morning to see if she minded my coming a night early. She picked up the phone and said: "I knew it was you! I just heard "Love Shack"!!"

Adrienne said...

I almost hate to admit it -- Sex Bomb by Tom Jones. It's the only Tom Jones song I know, but my sister has it on a CD and it always gets us dancing!

marzi said...

so, in all honesty, i don't dance. mainly because nobody wants to see this uncoordinated, white girl shake anything! i inherited my mother's clumsy, uncoordinated gene. ;)

with that said, i will dance to make my kids laugh. mainly during their cartoons. one of my favorite ones to entertain them with is the opening song to olivia. on more than one occasion they've been known to ask me to get out of the way so they can see the t.v. ;)

(for those of you without cartoon knowledge:

Amy said...

So hard to pick a favorite, but I can never help but dancing when I hear "I Will Survive" by Diana Ross. Irresistable! I'm logged into Google, so I think you can see my e-mail (hard to tell from here), but you can get to me via my blog at if my e-mail isn't showing up for you. Thanks! I SOOO hope I win!

Danny Chubford said...

I don't actually like to dance but I really do like to watch people who drink too much and then TRY to dance at weddings.

Some favourites with real embarassment potentential include

1. The birdy song
2. Fame
3. Anything by Queen

Jingle said...

Lately, it's Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus! HA! Sorry...but it's a FUN song! LOL!

Julie said...

Favorite song to dance to with my sweetie: "Me & Mrs. Jones"-the remake by Michael Buble. A close second is "One Flight Down" by Norah Jones.

Ashley said...

electric slide and macarena. cuz everyone looks like a fool but it's still a blast!

Malinda said...

I actually have two completely disparate fave dance songs:

1) Pump it by the Black Eyed Peas
2) Head Hunter by Front 242

Roxana said...

This morning I've been listening to the Christmas Revels CD. I love this, it makes me so happy. I'm singing and dancing while packing up orders.

"Dance, dance wherever you may be..."


Lauren said...

Brick House - The Commodores!

Cate said...

So,as I love to sing as I dance and I'm still dancing as though I am in the 1980's, I would choose Karma Chameleon - Culture Club
Tainted Love - Soft Cell
Sweet Dreams - Eurythmics
Nice day for a white wedding - Billy Idol
Old Time Rock & Roll- Bob Segar
Have you pictured this yet?
Oh by the way I have video footage of me dancing and singing to 'It's raining men'
...have I won yet?

susanj said...

Madonna...Lucky Star!

ali moss said...

Well it's been some years since I got my groove on but I'm kinda lovin Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'. Also the Killers ---- ' Are We Human " and if we want to go way back, I always loved dancing to Bruce Springsteen's Dancin In The Dark, Men at Work, Eurythmics . Lots more from the 80's but too numerous to mention.

mytwocentsworth said...

Among others, "Boogie Shoes" by KC and the Sunshine Band--as in Saturday Night Fever. This may date me, but I love disco music. Dancing along with Travolta to Beethoven's Fifth in SNF is also great fun.

jessica.avila said...

Tango with my Hubby!= Gotan Project "Santa Maria"

Julie Suzanne said...

Like Ali Moss, my most recent song I love to dance to is Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.

drub-b said...

Celebrate by Kool and the Gang, or anything by Kool and the Gang

Adriana said...

The Raptures - Olio
Radohead - Idioteque
All from New Order

Anonymous said...

hi its all about the face actions with my 2 year old, Justine Clark is on constant play and we're learning all the dance steps from the dvd. oops nearly said video.

crowjoy, mander, bullfrog and droopy drawers said...

At Last by Etta James... our wedding song and anniversary tradition. But also Love Shack by the B52s and Groove is in the Heart by Deee-Lite. Can't stop me when those come on.

Been looking for an excuse to comment and say your blog is a daily stop for me now. Thanks for being a bright spot in my day!

sharmarose said...

i'm a blues/rock kinda gal, so right now my fave is 'blue on black' by kenny wayne shepherd band. i also like to sing it [if no-one can hear me]. thanks for the chance at the give-away. you give good blog!

Suzanne said...

Great question! I had to think hard about this one... but my choice(s) would be:

September ~ Earth Wind & Fire
Love Shack ~ B 52's
Holiday ~ Madonna
Billy Jean ~ Michael Jackson

Mostly because they are all so fun to sing along to also :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

Cathe said...

Well, then... here are my choices that I couldn't decide on..

Jackson 5: ABC, 123 (I rock out with my son on this one - in the car!)
Ike & Tina Turner: Proud Mary
Eurythmics: Sweet Dreams
Eric Clapton: Layla
English Beat: I Confess

Jill said...

I remember dancing to this at pool parties when I was in jr. high. This is the MJ that I will remember.

Michael Jackson - Don't Stop Til You Get Enough

mamaslittlebabies said...

This is fun! When I here these tunes, I just have to get up and move.

Would You...? by Touch and Go
The Breaks by Kurtis Blow
Molly's Chambers by Kings of Leon
Lie to Me by Jonny Lang
Bamboleo by Gipsy Kings

Somebody stop me. :)

Anna said...

It must be "Edge of seventeen" by Stevie Nicks.
Perfect also for cleaning the house for christmas!


Michaele said...

"Jai Ho" since Slumdog Millionaire came out (my kindergartners even use the song as their "clean up" ditty)- but if you want to get me dancing AND cleaning up at home, any upbeat Journey song will do- Steve Perry singing, of course! Happy Holiday!

Debra said...

What a great question Fiona. Well, don't you know... everybody's movin, everybody's groovin' Love Shack Baaabee! Gonna go put it on right now. Then the sound track for Too Wong Foo right after. Get my groove goin' this snowy mountain morning.

Jill said...

I love to get moving to '5 Days in May' by Blue Rodeo.
