So, this entry will be a response to a request made by Shandy. Basically, it’s going to be a list of songs that I think are great fun to dance to. 🙂 Of course, if you have any additions, I’d love to hear them via comment!
So, a small preface: Not all of these songs will technically be blues songs, and some of them I haven’t had the chance to formally blues dance to with a partner. Many of them are forms of fusion, but there are some straight up pop songs in there, too.
But that doesn’t change how danceable they are! So without further ado, my playlist of favorite songs to blues dance to:
1: Minnie the Moocher Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
2: 2nd Line Wynton Marsalis
3. Bad Things Jace Everett
4. Do To Me Trombone Shorty
5. Sing, Sing, Sing Benny Goodman
6. Big Time Operator Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
7. Fuck You Cee Lo Green
8. Candyman Christina Aguilera
9. The Bare Necessities Terry Gilkyson
10. Leap Frog Les Brown
11. Feeling Good Nina Simone
12. Georgia On My Mind Ray Charles
13. What’d I Say Ray Charles
14. Isn’t She Lovely Stevie Wonder
15. Superstition Stevie Wonder
16. Something Beautiful Trombone Shorty
So there you have it! In looking for songs that are fun to blues dance to, I’ve found that songs that are simply danceable in general make for fun blues dancing. 🙂 I’d love to hear what some of your favorite songs to dance to are!
