I'm trying to make a playlist for an event, sort of a counterpart to other events going on that have very serious formal dances. Ours is going to be loud, raucous and full of guilty pleasure music.

I don't see any reason we can't have some fun with this. Pick one or more and dance around the house!

Starting off, I have We Built This City by Starship, It's Not Unusual by Tom Jones, You Shook Me by AC/DC.....
