MMMM: Party Songs!

The assignment was simple: PARTY SONGS. Here are ten. Understand, a few of them were party songs when I was into partying, so they may seem strange. Believe me, I had a whole bunch that would have had you scratching your head asking yourself, "what the….?"

  1. Van Halen, "Jump"
  2. J. Geils Band, "Looking For A Love"
  3. George Thorogood, "Move It On Over"
  4. Steely Dan, "Bodhisattva"
  5. Leonid & Friends, "25 or 6 to 4"
  6. Fanny, "Charity Ball"
  7. Steppenwolf, "Born To Be Wild"
  8. Johnny Winter, "Johnny B. Good"
  9. M. C. Hammer, "U Can’t Touch This"
  10. Rascal Flatts, "Life Is A Highway"

And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for February 21, 2022.

  1. These are great songs! I have danced to many of them except Chicago but I love that you have them here represented by Leonid & Friends. Van Halen…OMG! The hair and David Lee Roth thinks he is the catch of the day. Little did he know I would be one to throw him right back into the ocean. Love it!

    1. DLR was actually a good singer and should have focused on that.

      As for Leonid & Friends, they sound more like Chicago than the latest iteration of Chicago does. Leonid transcribes all the music from the records, which is an amazing skill, and those musicians and singers are tremendously skilled. And for the life of me I can’t figure why Ksenia Buzina, the young woman, isn’t an international star by now. She’s a fantastic singer who knows several languages and is drop-dead gorgeous.


  2. John,

    You added a song or two to your list that’s new-to-me. I enjoyed listening to your party song playlist this morning. It really put me in a good mood which is is what I needed after learning last night a good friend’s sister passed away in December. Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M gang, my friend. Have a boogietastic week!


  3. I like what you did! Part of the beauty of themes is being able to interpret them differently – there is more than one correct answer and I enjoyed your list. My favorites include J. Geils, Leonid and Friends (of course!), and Rascal Flatts. Nice!


    1. I had a couple of blues numbers that I took out, Koko Taylor’s “Wang Dang Doodle,” which talks about a party, and Muddy Waters’s “Got My Mojo Working,” his signature song that he would do at the end of his shows. Those figured pretty heavily in the songs we’d play at parties. (Yeah, we were real blues fans in college.)
