There needs to be new laws against line dancing to that kind of stuff. I mean c'mon. Or at the very least - it should be open season on shaming line dancers when they do the Electric Slide to Led Zepp or Jethro Tull (or any of the other musical creations that never EVER included line dancing in their creation, and never would).

Or, one could just wear them out by starting a set with:
Kryptonite....Three Doors Down....198bpm
Hey Mama....Black Eyed Peas....200bpm
Paradise City...GNR....200bpm
Radar Love...Golden Earring...202bpm
Cuts Like a Knife....Bryan Adams....200bpm
Ice Cream Man...Van Halen....199bpm
Rock and Roll Hootchie Coo...Rick Derringer...199bpm

These are all in my one hour long cardio playlist and guaranteed to make you rethink fitness.

Perhaps if we can show them there is enough interest, the powers that be might be willing to give us a night once a month to see how it goes.

Keep throwing out any local bands that you think might be a fit (and feel free to link any youtube/audio, I'm always interested in hearing something new)

Might I suggest checking this out on youtube

Nice, I volunteered for about 15 of them over the years, going back to the Red Hook and the ILCC days before they moved it back to Conn. Lots of kind people and good times. I still golf with one of the guys I met there.

We should add a little new wave and punk to the mix for extra heart-rate credit:

One More time - Joe Jackson (254 bpm)
Got the time - Joe Jackson (says 124bpm but they're counting it wrong - it's cut time so 248bpm)
Rock Lobster - B-52s (also says 100-something but again, it's cut-time so double beats - well over 200)
Private Idaho - B-52s (somewhat slower, in the upper 100s)

And here's one that's just insane, good luck to those line dancers if they manage to get through it without killing each other:

Hocus Pocus - Focus (don't even bother trying to count)

(this is the above: don't listen to it if you have a pace maker or haven't taken your BP medicine yet today):

Focus - Hocus Pocus - YouTube

The line dancers do dance to new wave when it's the Spazmatics. The singer of the Hooligans and also the singer of the Orlando Spazmatics. It's a national franchise with Spazmatics in LA, Chicago, Las Vegas, Texas and Orlando. These guys have been coming here since last summer and their crowds are as big as for the Hooligans. It's all 80's mostly new wave. Same great singer. They'll be at LSL this Friday, they want you to go the photo booth and pick up some glow items

Heh I already have some glow sticks and necklaces. Used to work at Party City and they were having a clearance sale. The clearance price plus my discount meant I got like 40 of the things for around $2. Gave most away, kept the rest "just in case." Seems I have use for them afterall!

Also - it's Saturday at Spanish Springs! Saturday is the cruise night and the Hooligans. I didn't know about LSL since I live in the historic district

Tell me you're joking. And if not, how long will we have to wait til they line dance to In A Gadda Da Vida?

They don't stop dancing when the bands go on break and there is piped in background music playing. They will dance to anything. A while back my wife and I were dancing at LSL and an older gentleman told us we had to go dance elsewhere because we were in the line dancing area? REALLY, they have reserved dancing space? They are out of control. I think the older gentleman that told us we had to move was part of the entourage of the leader of the obnoxious line dancers, the tall woman holding a water bottle while whipping around her pony tail.

What I wouldn't give for an Eyes of the World or an In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.

But I'd settle for something like this and could see the gang line dancing to it with no problem
