Dubstep Dancing….

What is Dubstep and am I to late to learn?

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals".

Translation it’s a string of noises and sounds that makes no sense at all.

Here is sampling of Dubstep Music.

 

I don’t know about you but I myself couldn’t make it thru 2 minutes of it. Sure I’ll be the first one to stand up and raise the volume on the radio, I’ll also be the first one to dance at a club or party. But this? Is this really music or just a bunch of odd sounds put together?

Granted some, dubstep music or is it songs? Are remixes of popular songs.  I was able to enjoy (ummm tolerate)  a bit more and was able to make it thru the whole video.

 

Now that I’ve decided what kind of dubstep music I’d rather listen to, comes the most important question of all.

Can I dance to it?

Am I to old to learn dupstep?

How do you dance to it?

Well it turns out, nobody seems to be very certain how exactly you dubstep dance.  After an intense  search on youtube. I found that sometimes it’s the robot, sometimes it’s a pop-and lock,  a move in slow motion  dance  and then there’s the just swing and flail your arms around dance.

 

 

After watching these videos I’ve decided that my old age joints wouldn’t be able to handle it nor could my brain handle the so called dubstep music. Although the flailing arms one seems easy enough if I don’t mind looking like a fool.  So will any of you be dubstepping soon? Who’s with me? Should we form a crew? Can we get matching outfits?

To apply please send me a video of your best dubstep moves.  I need a good laugh every once and a while.

P.S the use of a walker as a prop is a big plus Winking smile

Love Will Keep Us Together

22 Jul

We were watching an episode of The Cleveland Show tonight.   In this particular episode Cleveland and Donna are  competing in the Broken Stool’s karaoke contest.  They sing a Captain & Tenille song from 1975 “Love Will Keep Us Together”.  I had to look it up on Youtube after the show finished.  The song takes me back to my childhood days.

Days when dancing and singing, in the living room, were a common everyday thing with my mother.
