The greatest love of all may be the fondness Americans share for peak-era Whitney Houston. Want proof? Check out the following video — courtesy of Gothamist — which shows what happens when a pair of buskers start performing “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” on a Brooklyn subway platform:
There aren’t many songs that could move grumpy New Yorkers to join together for an impromptu dance party, especially on a sweltering subway platform in the depths of summer — but don’t you wanna dance, say you wanna dance, don’t you wanna dance, after watching this? There’s only one other non-Houston tune that could get me moving this way: Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” for obvious reasons. (Just ignore the “on my own” part.)
Are there any dance songs you find irresistible, even in a brightly lit public space?
