Dancin' Songs

The other day, a friend of mine asked me for some help making a playlist of well known, really good, shagging songs! He's performing at a sorority's band party and wanted to do some extra songs that would really get everyone on the dance floor. I came up with a good list, but wanted to share it, and some extras with y'all!

1. Baby (You've Got What It Takes): Michael Buble
2. Up on the Roof: The Drifters
3. Be My Baby: The Ronettes
4. One Fine Day: The Chiffons
5. Hey! Baby: Bruce Channel
6. Just Haven't Met You Yet: Michael Buble
7. Blue Moon: The Marcels
8. Let's Twist Again: Chubby Checker
9. Carolina Girls: Chairman of the Board
10. 39-21-42 Shape: The Showman
11. Runaround Sue: Dion
12. Hold Back the Night: The Trammps (a personal fave!)
13. Dance With Me: The Drifters
14. This Old Heart of Mine: The Isley Brothers

15. Carolina Lullaby: Ned Durrett
16. This Magic Moment: Ben E. King (another staple!)
17. It Will Stand: The Showman
18. Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy: The Tams
19. Love Done Gone: Billy Currington (this one is MUCH more recent than the others, but it's PERFECT for shagging!)
20. Loverboy: Billy Ocean

This is a list of a lot of my favorites to dance to--somethin' 'bout a shagging song that just always gets my toes tapping!!

I think it will be great if you made a spotify or 8tracks mix.
