Joyful Monday - Get Up and Dance!

What song makes you grab your hairbrush and use it as a microphone? I love this song, always have, always will. No matter how I'm feeling when I hear this song I start dancing. I might be in my car but, I dance anyway. When I was little I had a huge crush on Michael Jackson. It lasted until he started looking weird. Whatever they may say about him, the man was a musical genius.
But, I digress, the point of this Joyful Monday is, "What makes you get up and dance?" What song, no matter how bad you are feeling makes you crank up the radio or ipod and you become a dancing fool? There are a lot of songs that make me feel this way and, I may post them here and there but, I think this is my favorite happy song. I am by no means a music aficionado. I'm the biggest fan of about every geek singer or group there is. To name a few - ABBA (I have their Gold album on my mp3), John Denver, Barry Manilow (everyone is a closet Copa Cabana fan, I don't care what they say), The Monkees (had a huge crush on Davy Jones too) oh lord the list could go   on. It should be required somewhere that at least 20 minutes a day should be dedicated to dancing. So, what makes you get up and groove? What makes you get up and shake what your mama gave you? C'mon, let's dance!!!

  2. Hey... who you calling a geek!!! With the exception of Barry Manilow I adore all the groups you mentioned with ABBA being the tippy top!

  3. Oh my goodness, a Jackson 5 album was my first record ever! And I STILL love ABBA - it's the perfect music to clean house to! Theresa
