I've used Electric Boogie and Achy Breaky Heart, and even had the Electric Slide break out to "Brick House". What other songs have you used for the Electric Slide?
I imagine you would void the BOSE Warranty if you were .I'm not the uber-interactive, dive off my speakers, kinda DJ.
that's pretty goodTry the Slide Challenge if the group is ripe for the test.
One complete 360 degree play of Marcia Griffiths "Electric Boogie", (about half the entire song) then stop the song cold when they are back facing you. Tell them they are great and you're going to give them an opportunity to earn their bachelors degree in the slide, soulfully. Start Aretha Franklin's "Respect". One complete 360 degree play of "Respect", then stop the song cold when they are back facing you. Tell them they are better than great and you're going to give them an opportunity to earn their master's degree in the slide, country. Start "Achy Breaky Heart". While they are sliding and over the top of the music, tell them there's one more part to earning their masters (this vocalization takes pin-point timing to coincide with where they are in their steps) tell them, "The next time you lean forward, yell "YEEEEEE" and when you lean back, yell "HAWWWWWW". As they do it, kill the music. The folks who are not participating will fall out of their seats, especially when I add the comment," The things you get people to do when you own a microphone." The dancersl now compete to yell YEEE HAWWW louder each successive time thereafter. Ask for a hearty round of applause from the tables and themselves at the end. Pay close attention to the huge smiles everywhere.
I'm not the uber-interactive, get out front, yell and scream, lead line dancing, dive off my speakers, beat on boobies kinda DJ, but this ditty seems to match my personna quite well and meets with a conservative bride's approval.
THAT sounds fun... I might try that sooner than later...A song that beat mixes absolutely completely and totally perfectly into the Eslide is Will Smith's Getting jiggy with it, at about 45 seconds from the end of the Slide.
You don't have to pitch up or down, they have the same up and down beat, and same EXACT BPM. I'm fond of letting people know that they need to keep going, not stop, and drop it in.
There's the original version (from her "Carousel" album), and a later "Super Electric" version that was released as a 12" and CD single.The Marcia Griffith version.
