To celebrate the release of Brooks Benjamin’s My Seventh-Grade Life in Tights, I’ve compiled a list of 5 songs that make me want to dance. Anyone who’s tried #5amWritersClub knows how tough it can be to drag out of bed before the sun, but these 5 jams get me on my toes every time:
1. Shake it Off, Taylor Swift
Let’s be honest, no dance playlist is complete without this one.
2. Take on Me, a-ha
Not only one of the best songs ever, but an epic piece of Chuck history. Win-win!
3. Run It Back Again, Corbin Bleu
The repeat button makes me feel like a time traveler, and this song gives me an awesome excuse to use it!
4. Better When I’m Dancing, Meghan Trainor
Who doesn’t feel better when they’re dancing? (This one’s for you, K)
5. Girls of Rock and Roll – The Chipmunks and Chipettes
If this one doesn’t make you dance, you might be Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense. Maybe have someone check for a pulse.
BONUS NINJA FREESTYLE!
Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’, Hanson
Because every playlist needs more cowbell.
It’s by no means a comprehensive list, but hopefully at least one of those got your toes tapping.
Don’t forget to check out My Seventh-Grade Life in Tights and happy dancing!
