#OnTheList with Xtine is a weekly feature from Fresh 102.7’s Christine Richie that will be highlighting all things music and more, from her favorite emerging artists, top female vocalists, and much, much more!
My boss thinks I’m very picky when it comes to music. He says that I like obscure artists and songs that most people wouldn’t. I think that’s fair considering we don’t agree on most music. He came to me the other day and said we’re going to play the new Justin Timberlake. He then said, “It’s going to be a smash but you’re going to hate it.” Well, I love nothing more than proving my boss wrong. This will definitely be a recurring theme with my lists. This was one of those times; I LOVE the new Justin Timberlake. I’m a fan of any song that makes me want to dance, even against my will.
When I told my boss this he said, “You don’t dance.” WRONG again! I took about 12 years of dance lessons. I love to dance and pretty much anything involving dance. I could spend hours watching old Fred Astaire movies.
When I don’t feel like working out, I turn up the music and dance. Sometimes you just have to dance it out when you’re in a funk or things aren’t going your way. On the other hand, feeling pretty good makes you want to dance too. I guess what I’m saying is, it’s hard to be anything but happy when you’re dancing. You don’t even have to be good at it, you just have to move.
My boss was partially right, I definitely don’t dance… enough! This called for a list of songs that always make me have to get up and dance.
