    Grooving moving music mix

    Moving can be a struggle, no matter the time of day or the temperature outside. Here are some tips to make the process smoother, whether relocating to a new apartment, house, dorm room or just your parent’s garage.

    Journey, “”Don’t Stop Believin’ “”

    The Sopranos might have ended on a (debatably) sour note, but your day won’t with this rock song blasting in the background. If one song can inspire so many pop-culture references, it can surely inspire you while packing up your belongings.

    Kanye West, “”Stronger””

    This might not be West’s strongest hit to date, but it offers a naturally catchy beat (thanks to Parisian genius Daft Punk) that doesn’t get old.

    Wham, “”Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go””

    Ah, an ’80s hit featuring a pre-sex scandal George Michael. The song might have driven young girls crazy with excitement back then, but nowadays it will just drive you to be totally hip in the eyes of your friends who are nice enough to lend you a helping hand.

    Rihanna, “”Don’t Stop the Music””

    The Barbadian temptress scores another hit with this pop song that should not be played back-to-back with West’s “”Stronger,”” as it might cause too much dancing and not enough moving.

    Justice featuring Uffie, “”The Party””

    After the struggle of moving, you deserve to let loose and show off those gams that’ll be in good shape from lifting boxes. Ladies will want to get cleaned up and ready to party when listening to this jam as Uffie raps “”Table dancin’, smashin’ glasses, its nice to get naughty/Now we all ready to head out of the VIP/I’m lookin’ good, and I can feel that all eyes are on me/Its time to show how ’em how we do on the floor.””

    First day of class dance-a-thon mix

    The beginning of college is an important time to let all your peers know that you’re now the big dog on campus. What better way to do that than busting a move? Here are a couple tunes for your iPod (or Zune!) that will get your feet moving and your body grooving.

    Joe Esposito, “”You’re the Best””

    This classic from the “”Karate Kid”” soundtrack is certain to get anybody in the dancing mood. The song is incredibly uplifting with lyrics like, “”You’re the best in town, listen to that sound.””

    Junior Senior, “”Move Your Feet””

    This fresh groove from the Denmark dance duo’s 2003 debut, D-D-Don’t Stop the Beat, has a catchy riff and poppy sound made for the dance floor. And by the title of the song you know you’re going be out of your seat and dancing in under 30 seconds.

    Ratatat, “”Wildcat””

    This funky groove seems tailor-made for the UA. Between the breaks in the synthesized guitar riffs and house beat the track samples a wildcat growling. How cool is that? … Yeah, I know it’s pretty freakin’ cool.

    Electric Six, “”Dance Epidemic””

    This song will literally give you dance epidemic – like a self-fulfilling prophecy or something – but you should be too busy to think about that sort of thing once your feet start flying.

    N.W.A., “”Something 2 Dance 2″”

    Who knew gangsta rappers liked to dance? Guess everybody needs to cut loose once in a while. The song may be more ’80s than rap, but still requires some requisite rump-shaking.
