One of my favorite songs in all of life is “Sittin’ By the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding.
I say this because although it’s not a catchy dance song, or crafted with recorders and office supplies, it still brings a smile to my face. I used to sing it like crazy when I was a child because… Well, I was really weird. I have since grown up and I’ve done the regular things people do, I grew my hair out longer than that standard bob all little girls had, I have tried to watch Twilight, I have eaten a load of pizza…
But I don’t spend my time on the dock of the bay anymore “wasting time”…
Party Freaking ON!

Because your a MULTI-TASKER!!!!… MULTI-CATSTER…. whatever.
Oooh the PUNS! The puns are my favorite!
and here I was, thinking that Sittin’ By the Dock of the Bay (which by the way, it’s in all my non-Jazz playlists) couldn’t be improved in any way. Enter cats and then, well… you had me at cats.
Oh, and incidentally, Sittin’ By the Dock of the Bay is a great West Coast Swing song. I always play it when I’m DJing for a WCS crowd. So to me, it is a catchy dance song! :)
You know you are totally right. In the right situations that is a total bad-ass dance song.
I’m so glad you have found my blog, btw. Your comments are making my day and teaching me things… Like the fact I may need to add West Coast Swing to things I want to learn this year!
I’m glad I found it too! And West Coast Swing is a lot of fun. You should definitely try it some time.
However, while I do dance it, my heart belongs to Lindy Hop and Balboa
