Tuesday Tunes — My Favorite Dance Music

dance danceHi and happy Tuesday!  Hope you had a great weekend and Monday!

I have decided to change Thursday Tunes to Tuesday Tunes.  Then on Thursday, I will be adding Thursday Throwbacks.

Thursday Throwbacks will include old pictures, old quotes, and I may even revisit an old blog or two.  This way I have a few more days of items to write about!

Today’s Tuesday’s Tunes is about My Favorite Dance Music.

As I mentioned in Friday’s blog, there are a few songs that I cannot just listen to, but have to get up and dance.  Over the weekend, I thought of a few more and decided to include them in my blog.

You will notice that a lot of them are from the 1980s and 1990s, with a few from the 1970s.  This is the time that I went out dancing a lot and many of these are the songs that I loved then and still do today.

During my senior year of college, my friend Dawn and I went out almost every weekend to a neighboring city to dance.  We went to a great place where we had a lot of friends.  Both of us were mainly about the dancing and it was so much fun!

Not all of these were played at this club, but I liked to dance to them on the radio or other places.  In more recent years, I have enjoying dancing with my neighbors at the beach!  That is fun too.

These bring back such great memories for me!  I looked up a few lists online to find these treasures!

What are some of your favorite dance songs?  Please share them.

I know there are others that I have also liked over the years, but this is my list for today.  I would love to listen to each and every one of these songs again!

I will have to work on a more current list of 2000s songs for my next blog.  There are a lot of great songs now and in the past 20 years.

I wonder what song I will hear first today that I can dance to.  I look forward to finding out.
