I’ve been asked to come up with a list of songs for a 60s-themed holiday dance party–possibly leaning toward the early 60s though not necessarily. My question is: what are the most danceable songs from this era?
Now I know that you can dance as a couple to smooth Frank Sinatra tunes, but I am thinking more of the kind of dancing people do on their own, just getting into the beat, without any practiced knowledge of dancing.
I’m thinking of songs like the Rolling Stone’s “Satisfaction” (1965) and Shocking Blue’s “Venus” (which was actually from 1970 but that’s okay). Songs that make people want to put down their drink and get moving!
I need to get this together in a couple of weeks so your help will be greatly appreciated.
