Dance party in middle school

I hosted a dance party for a few middle schoolers from church last night. Besides providing the wood floors to dance crazily on, my task was to select appropriate, upbeat songs for them to dance to.

This is the result: A YouTube playlist. I'd embed it, but apparently Blogger isn't enabled to do so.

I definitely threw a few throwback songs in there for good measure. The W's "The Devil is Bad," N*Sync's "Bye Bye Bye," and the Numa Numa song (properly named "Dragostea Din Tei")... The girls got a kick out of watching me and the other chaperone dancing and singing to these '90s and '00s songs they'd never heard of. (They also squealed with delight for many of the other songs. I felt rather accomplished and in touch with middle school culture, oddly enough.)

My younger brother and one of our friends had the Numa Numa memorized back when it was popular…almost a decade ago… my brother definitely watched it like 30 times straight, or some ridiculous number like that…

Also, I didn't get the King's Brass gig. :(

What are you talking about? I *still* know most of the Numa Numa song....

That's disappointing. :(

They might still, but I don't think my brother (a football player) would acknowledge that fact. :P

Yes. Yes, it is. :(

So you are saying you fit in with middle-schoolers? :-D

Oh, numa is fun, and so is *some* of basshunter...:-D

Me being clueless again, baum did you get to try out for The King's Brass or something? Bummer for the unsuccess....

Um... I'm saying I have to work at it to know what's going on in middle schoolers' worlds now. :D
