5 on Friday - Set 59

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

This wraps up my journey through the decades of recorded popular music, beginning with the 1920s.

And now I shall state for the record that I'm a dance music fan.

I love a lot of musical styles, as you've no doubt discovered through the past year of Travis' captivating musical meme. But the music genre I've always loved and will always love is Dick Clark's favorite:

"It's got a good beat and you can dance to it."

Here are only a handful of my favorite club tunes from the first decade of the new millennium.

1 - Can't Get you Out of My Head - Kylie Minogue - 2001

There's a dark secret in me
Don't leave me locked in your heart
Set me free

Feel the need
In me
Set me free

And ever
And ever

- Davis / Dennis

2 - Hung Up - Madonna - 2005

Time goes by
So slowly
Time goes by
So slowly

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run
Seem to have all the fun
I'm caught up
I don't know what to do

Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you

- Andersson / Madonna / Price / Ulvaeus

3 - SexyBack - Justin Timberlake - 2006

I'm bringing sexy back
Them other boys don't know how to act
I think it's special, what's behind your back
So turn around and I'll pick up the slack

(Take it to the bridge!)

Dirty, babe
You see these shackles, baby
I'm your slave
I'll let you whip me if I misbehave
It's just that no one makes me feel this way

(Take it to the chorus!)

- Hills / Timbaland / Timberlake

4 - Don't Get It Twisted - Gwen Stefani - 2006

Don't get it twisted
Don't get clever
This is the most craziest shit ever

Tick tock I guess I'm late again
What are you suggesting there now, Gwen?
Don't you know better?
What are you talking about?
You know it's going to come at any point

Night time
Flip flop
This time push my luck

He was really looking hot
Anticipation building up

Space invaders
Turn up all the faders
Need a translater

- Kanal / Stefani

5 - Bad Romance - Lady Gaga - 2009

Rah, rah
Ah, ah, ah
Rome mama
Oh, la la!
Want your bad romance

I want your ugly
I want your disease
I want your everything
As long as it's free

I want your love
Love, love, love
I want your love

- Lady Gaga / Khayat

I love Gwen Stefani and Justin Timberlake!

Love Justin Timberlake and a lot of the rhymic sound of the past decade. At some point they might have considered writing a lyric. :-)

Michael Offutt said...

Madonna and Lady Gaga...two ladies of superstardom a generation apart.

Just the title of the Kylie song had me dancing in my seat!

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Always enjoyed Stefani and Mingoue.

Not a Justin fan...but enjoyed your set

I like dance music too, but I think I like a different kind of dance music. I'm so in the dark with music from this past decade.

OMG I totally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set! I can't dance for beans and look more like an epileptic having a seizure when I do but I definitely appreciate a good dance song as it can also be used as a good walking song. It's so much easier to walk around a track with a good soundtrack!

And Justin Timberlake ... sigh! I don't care if it's not cool to like the man - I do, I do!
