Song: Beating Around the Bush by Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons

Posted by: Gareth   on:  13/11/2016   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

When rock 'n' roll dancers hit the floor for a jive they don't beat around the bush. They get on with it. They need music that does the same. The song Beating Around The Bush by Australian band Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons from 1976 doesn't beat around the bush either.




Great dance song - What I like About You

Posted by: Gareth   on:  01/09/2016   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

What we like about The Romantics 1980 smash hit What I Like About You is that it's one of the best Rock 'n' Roll dance songs of the post Rock 'n' Roll era.




Song - Psychotic Reaction

Posted by: Gareth   on:  17/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

Psychotic Reaction is an interesting track to dance rock 'n' roll to. It has some very awkward up-tempo switches at several points. You wouldn't ordinarily include it in a playlist for dancing unless you want to catch people out wondering what to do when the music throws them.




Song - No Matter What Shape

Posted by: Gareth   on:  22/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

No Matter What Shape (you're stomach's in) is a song with a slower rock beat. It's good for triple-step dancing, which doesn't work so well with a fast pace.




Song - My Sharona

Posted by: Gareth   on:  22/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

The Knack's My Sharona was a No 1. hit around the world in 1979. It has a strong medium pace beat, which makes it good for rock n roll dance.




I Fought The Law

Posted by: Gareth   on:  22/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

Bobby Fuller Four's recording of I Fought The law dates back to 1966. A popular song at the time, the quick strong tempo is ideal for Rock n Roll dance.




Boy From New York City

Posted by: Gareth   on:  22/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

The Boy From New York City as recorded by Manhattan Transfer in 1981 is an excellent track for Rock n Roll dance. It has a medium-fast pace with a strong beat.

Here's some more songs from the rock 'n' roll era that are great for dancing.




Just Like Eddie by Heinz

Posted by: Gareth   on:  30/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

If you want a track with a good medium-fast rock n roll beat that captures the atmosphere of the early 1960s, you can't go wrong with Just Like Eddie. Heinz Burt was the bass player for the ill-fated band The Tornados.




Summertime Blues By Eddie Cochran

Posted by: Gareth   on:  30/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

It's hard to look past Summertime Blues when you're compiling a list of really great rock n roll dance tracks. Medium-fast pace, very strong beat and a tone that perfectly suits exciting dance - how can you go wrong.




Sunday Girl by Blondie

Posted by: Gareth   on:  30/10/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

Not a bad tune to rock to. Sunday Girl was recorded by Blondie in the late 1970s, so it has a more modern disco sound, yet the beat is unmistakably rock n roll. With a medium-fast tempo, it's a great boogie tune, though not one that's often chosen for rock n roll dance sets.




Holiday Road by Lindsey Buckingham

Posted by: Gareth   on:  01/11/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

Okay, we're here to Rock n Roll Dance, not to pack up the family wagon complete with dead auntie on the roof and head down the Holiday Road with the Griswalds. Lindsey Buckingham's hit song from National Lampoon's Vacation movie can certainly help us with that, but only if you're ready for a fast one!




Walk, Don't Run by The Ventures

Posted by: Gareth   on:  01/11/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

If you can't dance to this tune, you should maybe consider a different hobby. Walk, Don't Run ought to be renamed Dance, Don't Sit!




Little Things by Bobby Golsboro

Posted by: Gareth   on:  04/11/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

When the dancers have worked up enough of a sweat that it's time to say "see you later, alligator" to Bill Halley and The Comets, you need 'filler' songs. Little Things is a great example.




Hey Little Girl - Syndicate of Sound

Posted by: Gareth   on:  09/11/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

This isn't your usual type of song. It's one of those rarities in which the lyrics are all spoken instead of being sung.




On The Rebound by Floyd Cramer

Posted by:    on:  25/11/2013   Category: rock-n-roll-dance-songs

Floyd Cramer played piano on Elvis' recording of Heartbreak Hotel and a stack of other Elvis recordings. As a session musician, he also played piano on a number of Roy Orbison's records, as well as tickling the ivories for Patsy Cline and other notable artists. (See Wikipedia)
