OK ladies, by semi-popular demand - It's the March Music Moving Marathon...let's see what you've got!


The goal is to dance to one song a day and post it here...


Boogie on! (do you think that's how you spell boogie? maybe bogey?)

Awww, SJ, you RAWK!

Brilliant idea! What an inspired way to convince a wayward body and mind back into moving and smiling in the mornings while I try to get/stay back on the wagon. I wanted to get started right away, though, so I did one tonight...

'LDN' - Lily Allen

-- Misha

PS-- I'm utterly shocked to see how few of my iTunes are suitable for energetic dancing, so will probably be 'borrowing' ideas and hitting YouTube... keep 'em coming, please!

'I've Just Seen a Face' - Ludella Black

Energetic, but mercifully short (2:12). Here's the Beatles version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbKGsEK_T9g

'Tie Your Mother Down' - Queen

Um, the video was linked on another forum and I started moving, so figured, what the heck? BUT- I didn't make it to the end. Sad commentary on the state of my fitness, not necessarily the song.

(Much better.)

'Build me Up Buttercup' - The Foundations

Twice. Because a) I skipped one, and b) it's such bouncy good fun! I should have played this yesterday, when I was in the dumps because I "gained" a pound from the day before. Never mind that my water-weight megaloss total for the week was 12.5 pounds, LOL. Gotta love first weeks, eh?

Some great choices!


I don't remember which days were which songs, but mine have been:


Ebony Eyes (Don Welch - late 70s)


Boogie Oogie Oogie (Taste of Honey - also late 70s)


Fooled Around and Fell in Love (Elvin Bishop - early/mid 70s)


Crocodile Rock (Elton John - early 70s)


Help!

Lissa,


I've been enjoying going through my neglected CD collections (200 +) and finding upbeat music to dance to.


A great big hats of to SJ for coming up with this motiviational get-your-move-on idea.


Luv ya, SJ!

Glad you are all dancing away...I am restricting the weight bearing activities on my poor sad broken foot and only bogeying in my heart!
