Popular Dance Moves from the 60s-70s

Thank you for including me in your Monday, kittens & dawgs! Although, the great 2017 total solar eclipse is now history, I had to share the cool photo DD#2 took with her iPhone 7.  I think she said she used a special lens for her phone to capture it. She did an amazing job, too!  I hope y’all had a nice weekend.  Mine was good despite recovering from oral surgery and restricted to a soft diet which will last for six weeks.  Alrighty, it’s time to hit the dance floor with  XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette , and little ole me with this week’s mewsic theme featuring song titles and lyrics with “Dance Moves“.



 

I was born in 1961 so by the time I was old enough I certainly remember doing some of these dance moves shown in the above video, especially the “Twist” and “Swim” which were easy peasy for anyone to do.

I kind of forgot “The Loco-Motion” was a dance step but I always loved the song!

 

Little Eva recorded the song first but it’s Grand Funk Railroad 1974 cover I remember best.  Did you know “The Loco-Motion” topped the charts in 1962 with Little Eva and again with Grand Funk Railroad more than a decade later? Australian singer, Kylie Minogue, did well covering the classic hit in 1988 charting #3 in the US.

Flash back some memories with this list of Famous 60s Dance Moves!

The 70s ushered in the disco era. There’s a mix consensus about this type of mewsic, you either love it or hate it. I was a lover! Get to your feet to relive these iconic dance steps!

 

 

 

 

I found an excellent list of various dance moves in alphabetic order on Wikipedia to refresh your memory or to inspire you with something different!

This is Curious as a Cathy signing off these funky Soul Train cats showing us some cool 70s dance moves!

 

 

What mewsic moves you today?

This week is going to be another crazy busy one for me with two doctor appointments for me and one for DH but I’ll do my best to hop over to dance with you.  I can’t believe my summer hiatus is coming to an end with the return of my normal or somewhat normal blogging routine next month beginning next week on the dance floor with songs about “Labor Day or End of Summer” on Monday’s Music Moves Me!

Saturday Song-susian #27 ~ Grand Funk Railroad

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Earlier in the week, A Daft Scots Lass spotlighted a song from a 70s crazy popular American hard rock band. There’s a saying that goes, “If you remember the 70s, you didn’t live it.” Well, I am here to tell you I was there, remembering and loving the music!

However, as time goes by my memory begins to fade on who did what songs. I wanted to review the heydays of this group, so please raise your hands in the air and get ready to live or relive the sounds of Grand Funk Railroad!

First let me say, I really wanted to start with a song by Grand Funk Railroad from 1969, the band’s birth year, but none of their music resonated as being remotely familiar. I guess I was too young to take note. When the 70s rolled in, this hard rock bluesy sounding group were cranking out highly favorable tunes with the bands’ fans.

My clearest musical recollections of Grand Funk Railroad is from these selections…
