Day 6: A song that makes you want to dance

The potentials:

Safety Dance by Men Without Hats

Wake Me Up Before You Go GoΒ – Wham!

Stayin’ Alive by Bee Gees

The runner-up:

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.

The winner:

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”.Β

You’ll always be tryin’
To stop that child from cryin’

I said you wanna be startin’ somethin’
You gotta be startin’ somethin’

    1. Hahaha! I just like reading up on things and back then when I liked a song, I used to do some background research into it. I love the ‘yeah yeah’s too!
