shut up and dance.
a look at a centennial collection of floor fillers: from ageless, whirling waltzes to bum grindin' bass beats.

Thanks to Miles Davis and Michael Jackson, disco and doof doof, dance music has been constantly evolving for centuries. It doesn't matter whether it was recorded on a computer or by a sixty-piece orchestra, whether it's rhythmic for two or two thousand, or whether it's been loved by millions for decades or only indie kickers for weeks. As long as it's something that'll get our toes tapping or our hips wigglin', people will dance.

this looks good! i'll try it out! i already love some of those songs and i'm sure the others will do a great job to get my hips wiggling. but i'm not difficult at all, anything with a good beat gets me going. :D
