I turned legal drinking age March 1995. This meant I could go to the clubs and bars without much hassle. This gave me a chance to rock out my killer dance moves… Of which I had none.
A few beers into me, and I’d bust a move. Poorly. I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s MTV generation- where songs came with dances. People did their best to mimic and copy them. I more enjoyed memorizing song lyrics. This has come in handy on long road trips when we listened to Sirius XM 90’s On 9…
The one song that has stuck with me is “Cotton Eye Joe” by Rednex. It came out the year I was 19. It kinda became my theme song as I started to hit the bar scene. A catchy song that everyone can sing along to. Even my kids sing along to it these days.
As for dance moves- easy. Just dance like a Hillbilly. Do some square dancing or swing your legs and arms wildly. With my long legs and arms, I could look like this:
Everyone looked at drunken me as such a clown anyways. Lately, I’ve been tempted to go for dance lessons with my wife. We don’t go to nightclubs, but perhaps some ballroom dancing. I think it could be fun. Who knows, maybe one day we will.
What’s your go-to dance or song?
