Wanted: Advice from Cool People
Last year I collected all the photos and video I had of each of the boys’ classes and created a little end-of-year video for each, set to music. Both classes watched it during their end of year party. It’s that time of year again, and I’m on the hunt for a soundtrack (or two). Here are some of the songs under consideration:
Dancin’ in the Streets…Billy Idol
Heatwave…Martha and the Vandellas
You Make My Dreams Come True…Hall and Oates *recently rediscovered via 500 Days of Summer
Here are a couple that were considered but rejected
Celebration …Kool & The Gang *gotta love it, but it’s overdone
YMCA …The Village People *ditto
I’m So Excited …The Pointer Sisters *maybe a little inappropriate
I Will Survive…Gloria Gaynor *more for me than them
I feel that–just maybe–I need to fast-forward things twenty or thirty years. Any suggestions for age appropriate spunky dance music??
Last year, I used a series of Disney Mania songs like When You Wish Upon a Star and Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride. If that helps.
