Yes. Video has appeared with me shaking my can. BUT! Thankfully the cameras weren’t rolling when I busted loose to my all time favorite dance along song. You wanna see me do the sit dance in my car? Or your car? Or in the middle of the street? Or on the top level of Macy*s in the middle of San Francisco?

Turn on Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” and watch my flubber fly. Go ahead, listen to it, see if you don’t do a little sit dance yourself.

So tell me. What is your sit dance song? I’m always looking for more to add to the “Hot Sit Dance Party” playlist on my iPod.

And if you want to see a bunch of ladies bust loose to Britney Spears (including me. *sigh*) Go here.


  1. It’s old, old, old from when I was a Jr. or Sr. in high school, but Set U Free by Planet Soul.

    Um. It was on an MTV Party to Go CD. And, I owned I think ALL of them.

    I’m so ashamed.

  2. I boogie down in my car to Give It To Me by Timbaland. LOVE IT.

  4. I’m only slightly shamed to admit that I have a “Car dancing” playlist on my ipod. It includes songs like SexyBack, Vivrant Thing, Pour Some Sugar On Me, Tear You Apart, What A Man, My Humps and Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’.

  5. LOL Rock on sistah-friend!

    My dance song is currently Bleedin’ Love (saw it on So You Think You Can Dance), but an all timer has been Survivor by Christina Aguilera. Something about that chick just makes you wanna dance.

  6. I’m currently dancing (literally, I’m listening to it on my ipod this exact moment) to Hiphopopotamus vs Rhymenoceros by Flight of the Conchords. Not only is it danceable, it’s also hilarious!

  7. hmmmm my all time favorite car dancing song (yes I too have a car dancing playlist) is “This Is Why I’m Hot” by Mims I personally like the reggae remix but the original is pretty great also… There is nothing to deep about the words “I’m hot ’cause I’m fly, you ain’t ’cause you not” yep it’s ridiculous and wonderful all at the same time! My husband won’t even allow me to listen to it when he’s in the car. He’s a hater!

  8. CURSE YOU for putting that video where others can see it. People, I am not the one in the gorgeous blue dress that knows every word to Britney’s “Toxic.” TOTALLY NOT ME.

    heather…s last blog post..I Might Like This Parenting Thing

  9. Funny, Christina gets me boppin’, too. Right now it’s more “Ain’t No Other Man” than “Candyman”, but I love both videos.

    I’m famous for my “couch dancing”. And no, that’s not a metaphor.

  10. Michelle says:

    Nothing wrong with your dancing. Looks like it was fun.
    I have a few dancing songs, but can never remember what they are called when I want. Does that mean I’m over 40 and my brain is going?…

  11. Damn you. Now I have Britney singing in my head. But I guess it is better than the ‘I kissed a girl’ song. Dammit.

    Need to buy some Cherry Chapstick.

    Kelleys last blog post..Don’t breathe on me.

  12. I CAN’T. SIT. STILL. if Jet’s “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” is playing. Also? “Bring In the Noise” by N Sync…embarassing dance-in-front-of-the-picture-window-while-neighbors-were-outside moment to that one…hooboy!

    Katies last blog post..Introducing…

  13. I can only think of one thing (I am sure there are more:

    The theme song to Alias. It totally made you dance. There was a hip shimmy, and some arm moves…you can even do it when laying on the floor watching.

  14. dear god, i wish i looked that cute when i danced…

    ps. low by Flo Rida. it’s the song emily dances hip hop to at her dance school…every time it comes on, i can’t. stop. moving. shes totally embarrassed by it of course πŸ˜‰

    alis last blog post..a summer bonus. and i don’t know how to be single.

  15. oh, my favorite song? oh I love some of the old will smith stuff. Not the old OLD fresh prince stuff, but like the “going to Miami” stuff…

    designHER Mommas last blog post..It’s only her 3rd word…

  16. that was awesome! that makes me want to go to blogher next year even more! is that silly or what?

    andreas last blog post..Oh Hai!

  17. I love to swing dance! What a fun music video!

    My sit dance songs are any big band songs (I can’t sit still when Swing plays.), “Crazy Beautiful” by Chasen, and most Stellar Kart songs.

    AGs last blog post..New Hair

  18. “Curbside Prophet” by Jason Mraz.

    Stacey @ Happy Are Wes last blog post..Throw the Book at Him!

  19. “Dancin’ Queen” by ABBA. My mom said this song was MY song when I was “young and sweet, only 17”! (I’ve actually MISSED being that…last nights “Dance Revolution” was so fun for me; I was on a HIGH after it was all over! πŸ™‚

  20. Totally watched it and totally giggled with you guys!
    Good for you! Looks like tons of fun.

  21. As embarrassing as it sounds, I’ve been caught dancing to “Hot Potato” by the Wiggles. My kiddos are big Wiggles fans, and they crack up at me whenever I dance along.

    Nicoles last blog post..My Messy Dylan

  22. Just the other day I found myself chair dancing at my desk to ABBA’s “Take A Chance On Me.” That’s a pretty snappy chair-dancing song.

  23. You do, like, this modified “pony”! So cute to boot! I wish I posted on my blog more often so I could go with you next year πŸ™‚

    Erins last blog post..Indiana Artisan Development Project

  24. Awesome. Love the video.

    My dancing is bad enough, just wait until you hear my car singing.

    Megans last blog post..How do I know?

  25. That video was so cute! Thanks for sharing. It made me smile at my desk πŸ™‚

    Sarahs last blog post..Sightseeing: Seattle

  26. Oh dear. There are too many to name. Seriously. I am the queen chair dancer, which is why I had to stop listening to music at work when I worked in an office. Awkward much?

    Now that i work from home, though, i crank up the i-Tunes and dance around my office all I want.

    I digging on Janet Jackson and some classic late 80s R&B like New Edition lately. But Candyman is definitely a rump shaker as is Get This Party STarted by Pink and just about anything by Fergie. I know, they’re horrible, but you try and not dance to them. You can’t do it.

    p.s. I’m making that fettucine tonight. We’ll see if I can slide the peas past Hubbz.. shhh!

    Jills last blog post..WTF? Wednesday

  27. Heh, well I work from home so I tend to get up out of my chair an dance a lot when the mood strikes from the mp3 player. A lot of what I listen to is not dance-able though–(weird mixture of metal and new age tends to grace my playlist)–unless you count head-banging or swaying as dancing, anyway.
    HOWEVER, I do have some old favorites from back in the day when I listened to stuff that was more pop and hip hop, or a few that are just more dance-able in general:

    “Cloud Connected” by In Flames (metal, but I think dance-able, particularly the remix)
    “This is How We Do It” by Montel Jordan
    “Creep” by TLC
    “None of your Business” by Salt n Pepa
    “Talk Dirty to Me” by Poison
    “Rock N Roll Junkie” by Motley Crue (although this is a song for strip tease dancing, I think)
    “Goody Two Shoes” by Adam Ant
    “Rock This Town” by the Brian Setzer Orchestra (or the Stray Cats, but same thing)

    Not sure if ANY of this would be something you’d listen to, but it’s a weird mix of different genres and years of music πŸ™‚

    Ambers last blog post..I guess it’s a sign

  28. I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but…Shake That by Eminem. I KNOW! I’m such a dork! I don’t even LIKE Eminem! I just have to dance when I hear that song!

  29. Hanky Panky – Madonna.

    Try to sit still!

    Amys last blog post..White Space

  30. Let’s Get It Started by Black Eyed Peas and Don’t Stop the Music by Rhianna both get me moving.

    Mary Beths last blog post..RANT AGAINST THE NETWORKS

  31. “baby got back” by sir mix alot

    never fails. i WILL sit dance if that song comes on

    biddys last blog post..bloggy vacation, revisited

  32. that video is fan-freaking-tastic!!

    biddys last blog post..bloggy vacation, revisited

  33. “Sunlight in a Jar” by The Lucksmiths. At first it doesn’t sound that dancey but then it just gets AMAZING. Almost anything by The Lucksmiths is great to listen to when you’re going out for the day and want to feel pumped. “Lose Control” by Missy Elliot is totally my workout jam, too.

    I make mix CDs for a friend I see about once a year, and she lives in New York City so the goal is always finding music that would be really fun to walk to. I spend months on these mixes to get them just right and I’m really geekily proud of them, and I totally want to send you one now!


    Megans last blog post..Prize Party

  34. I have some that I will sing at the top of my lungs and dance to in the car – despite the 4 yo telling me to turn the music down, it’s hurting his ears.

    Love Fool – The Cardigans
    Faith (or Freedom 90) – George Michael
    No Rain – Blind Melon

  35. After this former heavy metal singer admits he sit dances to ABBA you have to promise me you’ll add Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Snake Farm” to your iPod. Then you can think of this good ol’ southern boy when you’re stuck in Indy traffic.

  36. OMG, that was an awesome video from BLogher. I was laughing so hard. You guys rocked out. hehe

    Black-eyed Peas gets my bootay shakin’.

    Rheas last blog post..All you NEVER wanted to know.

  37. Excellent choices in the previous comments! I loved reading the suggestions, because my I-Pod is in desperate need for an overhaul. And Mama has to have her music at the gym.

    Just saw George Michael (whose voice is still awesome after these years) — so consider “Fast Love” & “Outside.” Look past the currently slightly freaky facial hair of late.

    “Love & Memories” OAR from the Live from Madison Square Garden disc

    “Would I Lie To You” – Eurythmics
    “Alright” – Janet Jackson
    “Love at First Sight” – Kylie Minogue
    “Fine” – Mary J. Blige
    “Just A Girl” – No Doubt
    “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” -The Police (because any mix I make HAS to have something with Sting’s make-me-melt voice)
    “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” – Elton John featuring Anastacia

    Now I’m giggling, ’cause if this were a part of my personal soundtrack, I’m not sure what that says about me…haha

  38. ABBA’s Dancing Queen. Definitely

    “You’re the One That I Want” from Grease. As long as my hubby is in the car to sing and dance with me.

    Kristins last blog post..Something to talk about

  39. darn it. can’t think of any right now. i drive a stick shift car which makes it hard to sit dance and drive.(because my hands, or at least one hand needs to be in the air.)

    marys last blog post..Nothing like a good cup o’tea

  40. I’ll dance to anything so can’t add anything there. Did want to say that the video was great. I don’t know who did that but it was fantastic.

    Lindys last blog post..sob sobbity sob!

  41. Not that a lot of songs won’t induce car dancing, but the one that I heard recently that caused me to make other drivers stare on the highway was “Talk dirty to me” by Poison. Hadn’t heard it in about 10 years and forgot how fun it was.

    BTW, nice rump-shaking, my friend! Sooo looking forward to ’09 already.

    Anissa@Hope4Peytons last blog post..Peyton gets her Rocky Balboa on

  42. You ROCK! Love the video. And look at all your cameos, girl!

    Um…”Toxic” is one of my favorite dance songs EVER. Well, I love to dance to anything by Britney, pretty much.

    It MIGHT have been okay to drive down the street, speakers blaring, listening to Britney Spears at age 18. But age 28? Hmmm. Jury is still out. But I do turn it down at stoplights.

    Hollys last blog post..My Name is Zoom, and I Live on the Moon…

  43. Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake(AKA the theme song to the tv show Chuck which I sorely miss) always makes me dance in the car. I have gotten odd looks by other drivers when it comes on the radio.

  44. Okay I pretty much groove to EVERYTHING in the car…but one of my fav’s right now is going to have to be Body On Me.

    Evonnes last blog post..Thankful for what…

  45. I no longer dance. I used to dance with a lot of liquid courage. Since I do not drink anymore, I do not dance. I know the dance world misses my horrible moves.

  46. There are some excellent choices here.I have updated my list of needed downloads. Lenny Kravitz can usually get me going. But ditto Christina Aguilera and George Michael. Also Stronger by Kanye West. I’ll stop now.
