I love Ossie! And yes, I have worked out to his latest release. I sometimes like to use soundtracks to work out to like Moulon Rouge, foot Loose, flashdance, Saturday Night Fever. I also like rumba beat music.

I also forgot to add that I like some of the blusey tunes from Harry Connick Jr. Really soulful and inspiring music.

Thank you all for letting me relive some of my best memories, music does that for us, we always remember where we were and what we were doing when one of these great songs comes on. I also sang and dancing with my daughter during the stage version of mama mia. :) jackie

It's 2009 and I'm still stuck in the 70's! Give me some good 70's Rock n Roll, extra loud, and I'm happy! No country, no rap, no jazz, just 70's for this girl! lol :)

That was a great era for music, wasn't it? Lots of good stuff during that time, and I love it all too.

LOL, I hate to admit I have a few "American Idols" but I won't call any of their names, lol, lol. Angie is addicted to American Idol too :(

Anonymous 2009-01-12 11:24:08 -0600 Report

I will call names of American Idol. I love Carrie Underwood and David Cook. He did not win but I like Clay Aiken and Josh Gracin.

2009-01-12 11:30:42 -0600 Report

I am not that much into American Idol, but I am a fan of Clay Aiken. I have a couple of his cd's and if I know if he is going to be on a tv show, I'll try not to miss watching him.

I move to Fleetwood Mac, most of all to "Tusk".
And I'm a big Jimmy Buffett fan.

Credence Clearwater Revival is always a favorite. I am fairly eclectic I love all music except rap and r&b.

I also like Buffalo Springfield, and Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Crosby, Stills , Nash, and Young. Lets face it I like Stephen Stills in his many reserections.

This is a no brainer for me… and I'm not that old, but anything by Glen Miller, especially In The Mood.

When I sang with a Sweet Adelines Group in AL years ago, we did an entire show of Glen Miller music, and it was fantastic! As I said above, I've always loved the Big Band Era and all the music from waaaaay back.

Oh my ladies. I was wondering if I should add Glenn Miller or some of the other of my many Big Band favorites and thought better of it because I would probably be the only one. My favorite idiom to play was always Big Band. Toughest lick to play was the lead trumpet part four bars before the end of In The Mood. Only 5 notes, but you're the only one playing. Toughest tempo to hold was "Lil Darlin"

MeiMei 2009-03-19 11:04:24 -0500 Report

I really like Benny Goodman speaking of Big Band. I have a two-disc CD of his biggest hits.

And even though I find it hard to admit, in hind sight, I really liked DISCO, especially the Beegees.

sexyswamprat 2009-01-12 13:24:58 -0600 Report

The BeeGees rock. You should be dancing is one of my favorite songs. I don't care what anyone says, disco will never die. I also love KC and the Sunshine band. Doesn't The Hustle make you really want to dance. My husband hates my taste in music.

Meridian - 26751 2009-01-12 13:41:24 -0600 Report

How about Stayin' Alive? The BeeGees changed music forever. Maybe not as big of an effect as Elvis or the Beatles, but nonetheless they made singing falsetto to a beat, a major food group to us really hip cats.

Pauline B
Pauline B 2009-01-12 16:13:21 -0600 Report

Stayin' Alive should be our theme song!
I like the BeeGee's too. I was thinking of adding that I NOW like the sings from the 60s that I couldn't stand when they first came out, such as Crosby, Stills & Nash, Beatles, and Rolling Stones.

But, the major space in the cabinet is taken by my classical collection that I have arranged by composer… but not by opus.

Meridian - 26751 2009-01-12 16:21:15 -0600 Report

Classical is fun to listen to, but not very exciting to play. Challenging yes…exciting??? Not so much from this old horn honker.

Pauline B 2009-01-12 18:34:37 -0600 Report

HAve to agree with that statement. The band that I'm in plays pops kind of music, and occassionally the director through in some some stuff from 15th century (like William Byrd). I usually get the tympany part that I play by turning the bass drum on the side. It's marginally effective. But give me a Sousa march any day!

2catty 2009-01-10 19:04:58 -0600 Report

Shuck me all night long by AC/DC and Looking down the barrel of a 45 by shinedown. Love shinedown

when it comes to a song that really makes you want to get up and dance.. (when I still could).. Chuck Berry's song "Johnny Be Good" is the number one I can think of most that really set me in that Boogie Woogie mood.

LadyDi - 26259Miller
LadyDi - 26259Miller 2009-01-10 18:05:37 -0600 Report

Yep, another great one. Chuck Berry's music could always get up and going. Also Jerry lee Lewis!

MeiMei 2009-03-19 11:02:23 -0500 Report

You know, you probably still could, and would be good for you, too. Good exercise. I always used to go to the country bar and do some two-step when I could find a partner. Now I live in the middle of nowhere and can't find a country bar!

sparkysmom 2009-01-10 15:01:26 -0600 Report

I don't dance but anything Abba or Night Ranger set my feet to tapping. also Brooks and Dunn or Trace Adkins

I'm a huge fan of the Big Band Era as well, and have been since I was a small child.

2009-01-11 13:11:19 -0600 Report

When my mother passed away, I brought all her big band era records home with me. I love listening to it. I guess it not only reminds me of her and dad, but we listened to it and it brings back the memories of her trying to teach us kids how to jitter bug and other dances.

Markus 2009-01-10 14:21:47 -0600 Report

I can't stop listening to the new Nickelback CD, Dark Horse. My favorite track is Next Go Round…I love the guitar solo! I have to make sure I use cruise control if I'm driving while listening to this one!

Oh yes all the ABBA songs. Did you see the movie MAMA MIA. All done to ABBA songs. Also some of mine are Bon Jovi songs. The fast ones. Boot Scootin Boogie by Brooks and Dunn. Having a Party by Shania Twain/Billy Currington.

sexyswamprat 2009-01-10 14:46:24 -0600 Report

Oh yes, I saw Mama Mia. I think I may have danced and sang through the whole movie. I have every Shania Twain cd and I love Having a Party, but I like the one with Mark McGrath better. And I am a die hard country fan. You have great taste in music!!!

LadyDi hit it right on the button. Fats
Domino, Little Richard, Church Berry, all
their music gets my feet twitching. Very
little of today's music affects me that
way, though Diamond Rio, Allen Jackson and Lady Antebellum have songs that are
wonderful to keep time to.

LadyDi - 26259Miller
LadyDi - 26259Miller 2009-01-10 12:37:15 -0600 Report

"Celebration!", "Shout!", "Peppermint Twist"…and a whole bunch more!

"At the Hop", "Great Balls of Fire" (no snickering now!), "Twist & Shout!", "Good Vibrations"…

2009-01-10 13:34:28 -0600 Report

All of these are great!!! Takes me back to my school days and the school dances, and dancing in the gym at noon. Also the parties and slumber parties. Memories!!!

MeiMei 2009-03-19 10:58:07 -0500 Report

Oh yeah! Now we are really showing our age, but just hearing the names makes me want to get up and dance.

2009-01-10 12:35:16 -0600 Report

Anything by the Four Seasons, also Stand by Me, and pretty much anything Motown. Also, Make the World Go Away by Eddy Arnold. There are too many more to list here, but these in particular. Oh, don't want to forget The Righteous Brothers!!! Yeah, I know, I'm old!
