All links open in iTunes – The Dance Buzz is an iTunes affiliate
Superstition – Stevie Wonder – classic with a moderate tempo
Love Potion No. 9 – The Clovers
Sympathy for the Devil – The Rolling Stones
Devil With the Blue Dress On – Mitch Ryder – keeps those toes a-tapping
Headless Horseman – Kay Starr – tells the story of the Headless Horseman in a cheery sort of way
Little Demon – Screamin’ Jay Hawkins– a fun 50’s rock-sounding tune
Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical
I Put a Spell On You – From “Hocus Pocus” soundtrack, or Nina Simone, and the cover by She & Him is particularly haunting
Howlin’ for You – The Black Keys – we’ve been using this for across the floor combinations in my jazz classes this week – works good for turns and battements
Strange and Beautiful (I’ll Put a Spell on You) – Aqualung – a melancholy melody in 3/4 time
Other Fun Songs
Dinner With Drac, Pt 1 – John Zacherle
What’s A Girl To Do – Bat For Lashes – basically the plot to Twilight summed up in a song
Grim Grinning Ghosts Remix – (link opens to YouTube – couldn’t find a link) could maybe use this for hip hop?
And of course, you have to add The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) – Ylvis just for fun!
