A Dancing Nancy is a British Dancing Queen

Hey, we've made it to the D's, which started out with a truly mediocre tune called D.W. Washburn by The Monkees.  It has now been excised from the iPod.  The first big block is the Dance's, which I've expanded to include derivatives ("dancing", etc).  Kick it off with:

  • Van Halen - Dance the Night Away
  • Jason Webley - Dance While The Sky Crashes Down (one of the ultimate drinking songs)
  • Peter Brown - Dance With Me
  • The Wonders - Dance With Me Tonight
  • Jonathan Coulton - Dance, Soterios Johnson, Dance (album and demo versions)
  • Ace of Base - Dancer in a Daydream
  • David Bowie - Dancing In the Streets
  • Dave Matthews Band - Dancing Nancies (album and live versions)
  • ABBA - Dancing Queen
  • Tora Tora - Dancing With a Gypsy
After that we get a brief haitus in the form of a song called Dandelions, two songs called Dangerous, Dani California and Daniel.

Finally we finish with a couple of classical pieces from Claude Debussy (he was French, but I've decided "danse" is close enough): Danse Profane (Unholy Dance) and Danse Sacree (Sacred Dance).
