    This is awesome but if I may be so bold to add: Early in the Morning by the Heartless Bastards, Just Like Heaven by The Cure and Take Your Mama by the Scissor Sisters. I do most of my rockin out in my car, so I must keep my knickers on. That might be strange otherwise. Or maybe not?
    Best,
    Tina

    My go to dancing in my undies song is “Let the Beat Control You” by Tilly and the Wall. Highly recommend :)

    When my 4 year old was 2, she would climb on the table, strip down to her diapers, and dance her heart out to Franz Ferdinand’s “No You Girls Never Know”. I will never forget this, especially since we captured it on film.

    I have to second Tina’s Scissor Sisters recommendation, I have had some quality kitchen dance parties to “Take Your Mama” in recent memory.

    Also, I am loving Ben l’oncle Soul, thanks for that tip!

    Sooooooo glad/amazed that you included “fix up, look sharp”. It was my husband (boyfriend at the time) official start the night out song! Love it!
    As for dancing with our without pants – my two year old and I have in the car and in the kitchen dance parties regularly to “Dance Yourself Clean” by LCD Soundsystem, “Sleepyhead” by Passion Pit and “Whoo! Alright! Yeah! Uh-huh” by The Rapture.
