SuperBall! Won't you do me the honor of being my guest(s) for the MetaChat SuperBall? It's a soirée par excellence... [More:]

What's a SuperBall? Why, it's a happy, bouncy thing. In this thread, we post the music that gets us up and moving. So grab yourself a partner or four, or do your own thang, and let's dance. The bouncier, the better!

I'll start us off with:
Björk - Violently Happy
Bang on the Drum (All Day)

Take On Me.

Holiday Road (ignore the grim video, it's a thing called 'irony')

Lindsey Buckingham also recorded a weird, fast-paced song titled "Go Insane", but the only YouTubes I can find of it are him doing it live as an acoustic ballad. Now THAT's insane.

I've been listening The Doors - Five to One all day

I'm not sure I understand what it's about though

I thought this link was going to be about superballs, and the Happy Fun Ball.

Perennial MeCha favorite: Endicott.

Nope! It's a ball, so put on your gown and dance! No frowny faces allowed.

Ear worm on Soul Train.

I'll see your "Whirly Girl" and raise you a "Bop Girl". (no, NOT Cyndi Laupeeeeer)

And do I HAVE to wear my gown? It's gotten kinda wrinkled in the closet.

Club Tropicana!

[It's rather disturbing how much I love "Wrong Way" & "Santeria". But not "Date Rape" because it's rather bizarre.]

Pump It! Pump It! Pump It!

Oh my gosh! Holiday Road AND Go Insane! I had the 45s. Go Insane had a bright orange sleeve. :D

Never fails to move me (in the dancey way):
In A Big Country

I am still listening to Trojan Horse far too often for even my sanity. I made the mistake of reading the lyrics.

From the Trojan Horse comments: "Did you know that In Our universe, you guys are a Metal band??"

I remember the first thing from The The that I ever heard (thanks to the constantly-looking-for-the-next-big-thing K-ROQ) "This Is The Day (Your Life Will Surely Change)" [WARNING: CONTAINS NON-IRONIC ACCORDION]. It became one of my more persistent earworms, and I offer it to you...

My Close Lobsters tapes are stretched out and now they sound groovier than ever.

Last one, more Bjork.

Thanks to everyone who came and danced! I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Just because someone has to do the obvious, Bounce.
