Dancing and distractions

Fat Mum Slim /


The littlest person in the house is a little under the weather. Poor little thing. She just wants to be held all day long, by me. Only me.

I’m happy to dispense all-day cuddles.

Time for a little distraction, and dancing. Last week {or the week before?} an invite arrived in my letterbox for a wedding, my sister’s wedding. It was the fanciest invite I ever did see. When we RSVPed we had to put the song that always gets us on the dance floor. Hubby was at work so I tried to think of the funniest song for him, and quickly wrote it down and sent it off. The best I could muster for him was Salt N Pepa’s Push It.

For me, it’s the song that never fails. Daggy? Heck Yeah. My song was Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield.

What song always gets you on the dance floor?

  • That photo just made me lol, as the cool people say. Nothing beats a good boogie on the dance floor at a wedding. Enjoy! x

    Oh definitely something old school like build me up buttercup by the Foundations. Love it.!!!

  • Sarah

    This is a great post! Love it. I am about to send out my wedding invites too and we are asking people to make a request for the DJ with their RSVP! It’s a good way to ensure a great night with everyone on the dance floor!

    Love Shack by The B52s. My whole family will get up for that one!!

    • Jamie

      Love that song! We always play that song when we do young adult dances and everyone starts dancing! One of the dj’s we hire even has a special oldies mix that starts with this song 🙂

  • Anything Elvis or from Grease will get me out on the dance floor. And I distinctly remember Beyonce’s All the Single Ladies going off at my wedding (5 years ago)

  • Love Shack. My cousins and I have this routine thing where we fake slap each other in the ‘Bang, bang!’ bit. I’m just a whore for dancing though so it doesn’t take much to get me on the dance floor!

    Billie Jean by Michael Jackson and She’s Got That Vibe by R. Kelly. I cannot sit still when I hear either of those songs!

  • Jodie

    Dancing Queen. Every time.

  • Kellie

    Funny story about that song. It’s my dance floor fave, too. My bestie bought a baby grand piano and for the baby shower she asked us all for our favourite song. I picked Push It. And sure enough she played all the songs. Including Push It. Awesome.

  • Debbie Huxstep

    Nutbush!!! Almost anything with a beat.

  • Kerry

    Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough by Michael Jackson or Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners are 2 favourites to get up and get down!

  • Charlotte Cornes

    Twist and shout by the Beatles or anything from that era that makes your toes start a-tapping! (P.s I am an 80’s/90’s baby!) 🙂
