50 is the New 30 (Second in a World Series) “DON’T AGE INTO AN OLD FART”

Who believes you cannot teach an old dawg new tricks, really? Nonsense.

Research has demonstrated that movement therapy is healthy. Caution… don’t stink up the joint.

You should learn youthful moves.

Start out gradually… with some easy-listening rap songs*:

  • DMX’s “Lord Give Me a Sign”

  • Soulja Boy’s “Crank Dat Dance”
  • Ludacris’ “Midnight Train”
  • Fat Joe’s “Lean Back”
  • Jay-Z’s “Hello Brooklyn 2.0”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDjH1vDmz2Y (live)

  • Eminem’s “Cleaning Out My Closet”
  • Biggie Small’s “Going Back to Cali”

Mary's Great Pugs

Whassup?!?

After you have become numb to the lyrics, pick up the beat and begin to move without embarrassing your children and grandchildren. Practice in front of a mirror in order to see for yourself.

After you are done laughing and more at ease, try out some dance music that does not date you too much. For instance*:

  • Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yd8jh9QYfEs (Rihanna’s video from 2007)

  • Sean Paul’s “Shake That Thing”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUqfLQe8axU (lyrics in English)

  • Britney Spears’ “Toxic”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOZuxwVk7TU (funny video from 2003)

  • Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”
  • Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”
  • Usher’s “Yeah!”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiXbRBS5Z58 (check out the dance moves)

  • Nelly’s “Hot in Here”
Famous Celebrities

Rihanna (2011)

Satran offers eight older sexy songs that may be acceptable:

Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On”

Heatwave’s “Boogie Nights”

The O’Jays’ “Love Train”

Martha and the Vandellas’ “Heat Wave”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XE2fnYpwrng (just watch the 3 of them!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=citlhnGZxyw (better recording!)

  • James Brown’s “Sex Machine”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BawG-N9_FR8 (1.5 hours live!)

  • Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zi_XLOBDo_Y  (perhaps the best one man music video of all time)

  • The Bee Gees’ “Night Fever”
  • Aretha Franklin’s “RESPECT”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FOUqQt3Kg0  (the 1967 original recording)

Your dance performance in the company of younger adults and youth may earn you the respect you deserve (at your age).
