My all time favorite is
Down at the Twist and Shout by Mary Chapin Carpenter

I like others as well like:
Rockin' Robin
Mustang Sally
American Woman

My favorite slow dance would have to be
Too Much to Lose by The Kentucky Headhunters.

When I was in high school, I woul have no choice but to start dancing like a fool every time I heard South Street....but one came along later on that makes me explode every time I hear it and makes it impossible for me to sit still. I have it on cassette and when I listen to it while driving, traffic around me thinks I'm having a seizure. It's called Ida Red by the New Christy Minstrels on their album Cowboys and Indians. I dare anyone to listen to it and attempt to remain still....can't be done. The only song that has ever come close for me is Can Can.

Kit! Your a belly dancer? I don't believe it! Please send a copy of your certificate and enclose a photo of your belly.

if it's get up and slow dance, Floyd Kramer's Last Date. *sigh* That is one of my all time most loved songs. One of the most romantic songs ever...for me any way.

Well, if it's Sunday morning, Hank Williams Jr. Born to Boogey!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Hey Sharon!  Shoop Shoop right back atcha … I love that one. That’s one of those all time “feel good” ones.

Ida Red’s definitely a toe-tappin’, knee slappin’, good fiddlin’ classic Michael. Love the visual of you trying to drive with that playing, lol.  I love the Can Can too!  When I was about 17, I performed that on stage at the Oktoberfest with a friend's German dance troop, lol! Sheesh … I’d totally forgotten about that!  I found one rendition here!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5Zj0dowvKo

Sue, I’ll have to pass that Floyd Kramer one along to my sister. She’s getting back into the piano, and that’s an excellent piece ..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIIzkEWPocs

Here ya go Larry! Boy, I can’t believe how much you can find here! Love this one too! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eo5M3HsIAY

Oh … Prairechild – Footloose never fails to get me going … Good One! When that comes on the radio, it gets me going every time!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3EAGK13bqg

Boy, this was a fun way to start my morning, lol!

that person on you tube mangled it! It's such a pretty song...I remember my parents playing that and dancing in the front room. They looked so in love with each other that it's always made me so happy to hear that song. My parents have been married for 43 years this year.

Wow ... this collection is getting better and better, thanks everyone! I've got a lot of downloading on Limewire ahead of me, lol. Wonderful suggestions!

I've been doing a lot of home renovations the last 2 years, and the whole time I'm working, or painting, or tiling, or whatever, I've usually got some great old 70's or 80's CD playing in the background (it helps me work better)  

I think if I had all the songs above playing ... I'm not sure if it would either help me work faster ... or slower if I stop to dance too often, lol!
