    Since the Music Lists don;t seem to be functioning at the moment, I thought I'd start some threads to highlight your favorite music for specific dances, here WC Swing gets an airing, I"ll start with:

    Steely Dan: Chain Lightning, Pretzel Logic

    Stevie Ray Vaughan: Cold Shot


    Your turn-------------

    ok, i like this song by Jay Booker called "Hot red sweater" only i don't have it and get this,... that thing is virtually impossible to find on the internet, if anyone has it, please e-mail me. Other then that one, my favorite to dance to is probably "How do you like me now" by Celinda Pink

    I didn't know that Mark Farina song though. Is "Work it Out' the one by Jurassic 5?

    How about :

    Weekend by Frayne
    Boogie Tonight by Sisaundra Lewis
    Ain't Love Strange by Paul Thorn
    I'm sure you know those :)
    Also for some classic blues:

    Oh, and Dream Machine? ....is AWESOME!!! I'll have to send it to you. You'll love it. It's possible you've heard it, but didn't know the title of the song. I know they play it here just about every night at every party.
