Two-fer Tuesday: Kool & the Gang

How can anyone possibly listen to this first tune and not want to get up and dance? There's something inherently enticing about that groove and those horns that reaches into one's soul and prompts the movement of feet and arms and hips.

I wish I could remember where I was the first time I heard "Hollywood Swingin'", but I don't. I was seven years old, just moving to California, and it was likely played on KCBQ at some point, wherein I started doing my little white girl dance alone in my bedroom. Guess that's not a bad memory to have. At least I had good taste in music!

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't include "Celebration" in this little party. Another danceable tune if there ever was one. In fact, it's such a fun, catchy song that the San Diego Zoo uses it in their sea lion show. So, yeah...I often envision a sea lion dancing along. (Shake it off, girl, and just dance!)

This may be as close as I get to disco. Or maybe not. I did post some on the other blog a while ago. Remember? "Rock the Boat" and "The Hustle"...cuz I was doing the Hustle in the living room. *hangs head in shame for remembering all the moves*
