I’ve got the moves like Jagger: what gets you on the dancefloor

By Aisling | August 31 2011 | 60 Comments

Yeah, a couple of drinks, a bit of fun with the mates and all of a sudden THAT song comes on.

You know – the one!  You’ve resisted the urge to dance until now, but as soon as you hear the opening strains of “the one” nothing can keep you from the dance floor.

Some songs are guaranteed floor fillers.  DJs know as soon as they put on Abba “Dancing Queen”, Dee Lite “Grove is in the Heart”; Tiffany “I think we’re alone now”; ACDC “Thunderstruck”; Depeche Mode “Just Can’t get enough”; Aerosmith “Walk This Way”; Carl Douglas “Kung Fu Fighting”; Dexy’s “Come on Eileen”; Justin Timberlake “Sexy Back”; Michael Jackson “Billie Jean; Gloria Gaynor “I will survive”,  the floor will fill.

It may not be cool and it may not be clever.  It may be corny as hell – but it’s great fun!

What gets you on your feet?

    Love a bit of Beyonce “Crazy In Love” or BEP “I’ve Gotta Feeling” on a night out, hackneyed as they are!

    PS I had that Maroon 5 song from the title in my head all of yesterday, and it actually was preventing me getting to sleep last night because it wouldn’t stop going around my brain!! Good song though with super-hot Adam Levine in video.

    Almost anything. I love to dance, it’s the people I’m with (husband) who hold be me back as they’re not interested. Sometimes I even hit the floor by myself – I want to dance! My first time in Germany in 1986 I found it really unusual that the people just got up by themselves now I just embrace it.

    heh heh, Thriller or Billie Jean by Michael Jackson gets me shaking my stuff.
    The last time I danced was at my sons 21st – Joy Division’s Love will tear us apart got me on the floor.
    Also anything by Madness will get me doing the Nutty Boys Dance. Stick One Step Beyond on and I’m up like a shot.

    I love that ad for Low Low I think, where the girls are out for the night and they hear “Kids in America” when they’re in the loos and they run out to dance to it….I love it, reminds me of good nights out with the girls :-)

    Heard the Mental As Anything song Live It Up, while making the dinner on Sunday. Had to balst it out while dancing around the kitchen. Kids thought i’d gone mad. A classic.
