Hour 22 Challenge: Impromptu Dance Party

Wow. First, I want to congratulate you for making it THIS FAR. Seriously, you made it for 22 hours, only TWO MORE TO GO, you can do it!

Second, back when I was in college, I would pull all nighters to write papers or to study or just to hang with friends. I found that one of the best things to get me through an all-nighter was to put on some music that makes me feel like dancing and makes me PUMPED UP.

So friends, fellow ReadAThoners, your challenge:

Post a song either from a you tube video or a spotify link that gets your blood pumping, that makes you want to get down and dance. Then come back here and drop me your link in the comments. This challenge is open until the end of the Readathon.

Here’s my latest dance like no one is watching song:

The prize to one lucky winner no matter where in the world they live:

Dewey Readathon Prize


AND THE WINNER IS: SAM at A Journey Through Pages

    E.T. by Katy Perry is my pump up song, and the lyric video pumps me up even more (it makes the graphic designer in me all happy and giggly)

  8. This song right here, Call Me Maybe is sure to get me dancing, but I managed to come up with two others πŸ™‚ Happy read-a-thoning on!

  13. April, thank you so much for hosting this fun and much needed challenge! I know the ‘thon is over, but I thought I’d post a link to the song most used at our house for dance parties. (It’s my two-year-old’s favorite song.) Golden Age, by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5h-LAvQDCQ
