Friday Dance Party

This is Friday, February 25, 2011 and it’s time for another edition of Friday Dance Party here on Acorns on Glen.  As we did at our very first dance party, let’s start by being thankful that we’ve survived another week….did you do that?….OK, good.  Let’s dance! 

I received a few comments and some emails on this week’s selection.  However, it was my mother that led me to this track.  She said that everyone needs a little rock and roll in their lives no matter how old, so in her honor, I’ve picked a classic Elvis tune to take us into the weekend.  Elvis is my mother’s all time favorite artist.  In her day, my mother and several other girlfriends used to listen to Elvis in private so that their parents and other “straight-laced” friends wouldn’t know.  They practiced and did his moves and when he became the “King” they were ready.  On the dance floor after Elvis became popular, all the secret Elvis admirers were at their best.  Everyone asked them to teach this or that Elvis move.  Needless to say, they never lacked for a dance partner after Elvis was accepted.  So let’s dance, let’s learn some Elvis moves and hope that we never lack for dance partners again as well.  What do you want to hear on next week’s Friday Dance Party?

  1. Absolutely fantastic article. It really took me back several years.

    I especially loved the video and even at my age I could still do the moves. A little slower but still I had the moves.

    Everyone remember you only go around once so do your own thing as long as it doesn’t hurt someone else. You can’t be happy everyday but if you have a choice be happy. It’s much more fun to smile and gain a friendly smile back or look grumpy and be avoided.
