So, I watch dancing with the stars, because I like the dancing. It sucks that Jennifer Hawkins (who looked awesome and COULD dance) is gone while Noelene whatserface, who is boring as shit stays.

Anyway, I thought I'd start a meme. If I was on Dancing With The Stars (or any dancing comp for that matter). What songs would I dance to?

Rumba - May This Be Love - Jimi Hendrix
Cha-Cha - Sway - Michael Buble
Jive - there are so many awesome jive songs. I choose 2 - Zoot Suit Riot - Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go - WHAM!
Waltz - Take It To The Limit - The Eagles
Samba - La Isla Bonita - Madonna
Paso Doble - Traditional Paso music
Tango - I'll get back to you. Never having learned proper tango I'm not really sure which songs suit it.
Foxtrot - I know I found a song for this, but promptly forgot. I'll get back to you.
Quickstep - Mack The Knife
Viennese Waltz - No idea, probably a traditional tune.

  • 1492 - Christopher Columbus's expedition makes landfall in the Caribbean. The explorer believes he has reached East Asia


  • 1582 - Due to the implementation of the Gregorian calendar this day does not exist in this year in Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain.


  • 1994 - NASA loses radio contact with the Magellan spacecraft as the probe descends into the thick atmosphere of Venus (the spacecraft presumably burned up in the atmosphere either October 13 or October 14)
