30 Day Song Challenge: Day Nine

Day Nine: A song that you can dance to         
           I'm not really much on activity or athletics or nature. The only times I can think that this has ever been a problem is when I have to take Physical Education classes. It seems that PE classes, not only want you to dress out (I hate sneakers, spandex and gym shorts), but they also want you to do athletics and other activities in nature for a grade...ick.
          How I got around this at the college level was by taking the PE classes of my choice. I took an intra-mural class were I learned to scuba-dive, play laser tag, shoot a bow and arrow and ice skate. I took bowling as well. My favorite class, however, was ballroom dancing.
          Although my class was taught by a grad student who had never taught ballroom dancing that made it all the more fun. In this class I found an old friend from high school and we became partners. We learned to samba, rumba, cha-cha, foxtrot, swing dance (which I still can't do), tango and waltz. Waltzing was by far my favorite and it is the dance we chose for our final. There is nothing more fun than dancing for a grade.
         This was the same year that "My Best Friends' Wedding" came out and we danced and danced and danced to that soundtrack, especially Burt Bacharach. A song I can dance to with ease, as it has timing and a beat that I can understand is "What the World Needs Now" sung by Jackie DeShannon.
         If it's a waltz I can dance to it, if I can't count a 3 or 4 beat forget it, no thank-you...I'll be a wallflower sipping on my drink.

6 Contemporary Songs to which you can waltz
"Ice Cream"--Sarah McLachlan
"You and Me"--Lifehouse
"Moon River"--Andy Williams
"The Rainbow Connection"--Kermit the Frog
