Safety Dance by Men Without Hats
Wake Me Up Before You Go Go – Wham!
Stayin’ Alive by Bee Gees
Twelve Bar Joan – Lord Kitchener. When I was but, a child, my mother would play this song and I’ll dance with her. Kitchener was very creative and was not only limited to calypso as he proved with this jazzy number. Actually listening to the lyrics of the song, later on, is another story.
Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ by the one and only, Michael Jackson. This post-disco funky song always made me want to get up and groove! I also liked the message behind the song pertaining to gossip and people trying to start arguments (or problems) for no apparent reason. I think there’s a story out there that said MJ actually wrote this song for his sister La Toya at a time when there was tension between Toya and the Jackson sisters-in-law and she was “stuck in the middle”.
