A Song That Makes You Want to Dance.
Here are the staff picks:
Leeann Ward: “Cotton Eye Joe” – Rednex
Just as I don’t sing, I also don’t do much dancing. A song that makes me want to dance, however, should also double as my guilty pleasure choice. Chalk it up to association with childhood memories.
Dan Milliken: “Twistin’” – Bruce Robison
Robison is best known for piercing ballads like “Travelin’ Soldier” and “Angry All the Time,” but he can rock a lighthearted uptempo with the best of them, too. “Twistin’” will have you shaking around till you’ve ‘bout ripped your pants and broken your bones, just like the groovy tune’s narrator.
Tara Seetharam: “LoveStoned/I Think She Knows” – Justin Timberlake
My favorite off his kickass Future Sex/Love Sounds album. He literally commands you to dance in the middle of the song – and how can you not?
Kevin Coyne: “Runaround Sue” – Dion
I don’t dance. Sorry. But this is the song that makes my mom get up and dance, so that will have to do.
