Join Ragtag’s Daily Prompt: Zest (Words or Pictures)
Hugh’s guest blogger, Steve McSteveface, challenged us this week to showcase “sing-along-and-dance-along” songs—Songs that make you want to dance around your kitchen. Cher’s “Believe” is one of my favorites. It has the perfect beat for hopping around and singing loudly. When I lived in Seattle in the late 90’s, early 2000s, I was part of a writer’s critique group that met every Saturday morning. We all worked and on Saturday’s our energy could ebb. One day, someone suggested we needed to get our blood pumping and put on “Believe.” We all danced and jumped around the living room for a number of weeks at the beginning of our meetings. I always think of that wonderful group of people and how we became a Saturday morning family.
Hugh’s challenge this week was to showcase songs that made us think of that “first dance.” I decided to go for some songs about dancing instead. I have to admit the last one is my favorite
