I love the song "The Hustle".

I always thought it was cool that they made a song a dance and vice versa. During the time when that song came out, you would see couples dancing together on tv on all kinds of different shows, like Dance Fever, and Solid Gold, and Soul Train.

That is another thing I miss, when have you ever seen a guy and a girl actually dancing together at a club, or on tv that wasn't the bumping and grinding type deal that looks like anything but dancing, but actual couple dancing?

I thought about that when I watched Fear the other night, and Alyssa Milano starts dancing, and I thought-how awful that kind of dancing really is. And people have been doing that for over 10 years now.

I was watching all these girls at the Eddie Money concert, and they all had one style of dance they did, and they thought they were really cool, but they all looked like they were wanting to lasseo a cow. I really don't think people know how to dance anymore.

I remember my parents use to go out all the time on the weekends at clubs like the Eagles or The Moose, or the Elks- they were legion type clubs, and they had dances every weekend, and they always couple danced to fast songs, and they could dance really well. When we went to weddings as kids, I remember how hard it was for me to try and dance with my Dad, because he knew actual steps to different dances, and you had to follow his lead, and it could be tricky. I bet there aren't hardly guys out there in the age range of 18-30 that know how to actually dance, other than slow dance.

Even watching movies like Saturday Night Fever-there were actually dances, and people went to dance classes just like Stephanie to learn all the latest dance steps, and it was a great way to exercise and have a bunch of fun.

When I was a kid, I found one of my mums old disco records and it had this on it...I loved it so much I used to play it constantly full blast with my bedroom window wide open so all the street could hear.

I have also found that whenever I meet anyone called Russell that it makes me sing 'do the Russell'...sad....but true.

Especially if it's with Theresa Russell or even Jane Russell! [Smile]

But not with Russell Crowe! [Big Grin]

That is funny about this one because part of the song kind of remind me of a fast kind of elevator music. Isn't that all they say in it is Do the Hustle? I can hear it in my mind and that is all that is coming to mind are those three words.

Yep...that's all the say.

I wish they would have played it last night....the firehall across from me was having a party and had a dj, and we were all out listening to the music, and dancing in the yard, and on my deck, and it was hysterical...we didn't care...we were having so much fun...I have to give them credit they played Push it, and Locomotion, and Walk this Way...and were jamming. It was the coolest to be dancing outside at night under the stars...at 11:30pm, it felt like the summer time street dances we use to go to.

I was yelling...."Play some KC and the Sunshine Band"....but they played Redneck music I never heard before...but that seemed to work out even better...if you'd have seen how we were all dancing, the dancing actually suited those type
songs....

it was hysterical...because these couples would come out and be making out on the hood of cars that were parked out there, and we'd yell "woooooo hoooooo"....and my son would pretend he had binoculars and run to the edge of the deck, and pretend he was staring at them....

if everyone knew how much trouble I had with these firemen...then you'll know how this was such justice that we got to have some fun at their expense. We had a better time than they all did, I guarantee it. Our dog was even going nuts and flipping out all over the yard, people were coming outside and staring at us...and we kept dancing, and we were clapping to the music, and we were standing up on the hill doing the "YMCA", and singing, we'd yell "turn it up!" !! And I was laughing so hard, cause that's the kind of stuff we use to do in high school.

I heard the Hustle the other day, started laughing with all the disco imagery that song brought back!

Did anyone actually have parents that actually went to studio 54? Maybe some of the NY based posters could pitch in.
