All She Wants To Do Is Dance / by Dana Bergstrom

This is a fuzzy Bigfoot type photo because some people dance so fast and furious that their crazy mysterious moves can never be caught on film. True fact.

If I ruled the world the first thing I'd do is replace the concept of walking with dancing. Babies wouldn't take their "first step", they'd take their "first dance step". Traffic signs for pedestrians wouldn't say "walk", they'd say "dance". Even the word "pedestrian" itself is telling us it's time to move on. As a noun it means "walker" and as an adjective it means "lacking inspiration or excitement; dull". Preach it, Most Right Reverend Dictionary! Walking is boooooring! I'd ban it right off. Dancing only.

However, I'm a benevolent dictator so if you didn't want to dance I'm also okay with skipping. Now that is one of THE most fun forms of transportation next to dancing. When was the last time you skipped? I dare you to skip somewhere today and then tell me you didn't smile.

Nearly every day in my house starts with a dance. I pop in the earbuds and jump jump jump around. I stumbled upon Soundcloud.com several years ago and felt like I had discovered pure gold! I still get alI warm and fuzzy just thinking about the day I found that site. I love funk, soul, disco - anything with a nasty beat - and there's an endless supply of new songs of every genre to listen to each day. Fer free!

Here's a half hour of the funkiest dance music I've heard yet.

If this is your kinda thing, click the link, crank the bass, close your eyes and let your body forget about pedestrian movement for a while. Or find your own grooves and shake shake shake it! Whatever jacks your vibe is a fantastic way to start the day and I hope you have a great one!
