You Sure DId, EMBRACINGHAPPY! and most were songs I wasn't familiar with ( I wasn't listening to radio much in the late 80's and through the 1990's...). So glad to see some more. I did think of a few that I was familiar with (my younger brother 11 years younger, born in 1972, he's the one who first introducted me to hip hop, with this song:

"You Can't Touch This" - MC Hammer
https://youtu.be/x17uzPUNMto

and I love the music to Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" even though I don't always like all the naughty words in so much of the music these days (and "these days" include back to the 60's and 70's when naughty words were more implied than stated! ha!). Sure is an infection Make-You-Get-Up-And-Move type song!!

Ooohhhhhhhh - I see! THANKS, PROVERBS31JULIA, great tips!

I will try to fix the links now.

Good idea to add some Prince!

Cool down songs are always needed, too... :)

[YAY - I fixed them, and they work!!!]

For some reason, and I don't know if it's SparkPeople or YouTube, but you can't just copy and past the link straight in from the top of the URL line. Or you can, but then you must, before you hit "send" (if you are using the "Add A Link" button), delete the "s" at the end of http:// - the default is to send it secure so the way you see it on your youtube page and the way it pastes in is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy4FXhkm6N
w (I didn't use the "add link" here - so you see where it says https ?

Go back to it, if you want to edit your post, and just carefully delete the "s" and leave everything else alone. That's what I did. I just did a copy, opened new tab, pasted, deleted the S, and then hit send, and I am watching the video.

The OTHER thing you can do, while you are in YouTube (and I'm looking at my website on the PC - I'm not using my YouTube app on iphone - the basic process is same but will be located differently on the phone app screen) - but at the lower left of the video, as you are watching it, where it says the name of the video and the name of the person who uploaded it, there will be a line with options for "+Add to", an arrow turning right that says "Share" and then "...More"

If you click on the Share, it will open up a new box with a link - in this case, it will look like this:

https://youtu.be/xy4FXhkm6Nw (again, I didn't use "Add A Link" here, but now I will:

https://youtu.be/xy4FXhkm6Nw

What they've done, then, is provided a "safe" link that side-steps the security thing, and you can share that link anywhere - email, facebook, twitter, instagram etc and it would work for whoever is reading any given post with that specific link.

Sooo these are all great song links!! I'd fix them for you but I would need to copy and repaste. I would think we can all just copy and paste and delete the S in a new tab, but sometimes I get excited and forget to do that, until the website throws up the 404 page... hahah I do that all the time.

And while I was messing around looking at these other videos on YouTube, I happened to think of Prince, looking for some of his upbeat songs. Found one I had never heard before and yippie yay, it's subtitled too - Here it is!
"The Most Beautiful Girl In The World" https://youtu.be/1-2PATTMhFo

Not a fast dance type, but certainly a warm up or cool down piece to feel loved and appreciated for your hard work!!

Proverbs 31:17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.

Especially in the 80s and early 90s, the list of upbeat hip hop songs is endless...

I do low-impact high-intensity floor aerobics (my own choreography) to Workout Music Source ... yeah I'd got bitten by that Uptown Funk ... I chose pretty soon to purchase a download of it (of iTunes nature), but here's the video ... www.youtube.com/watch?v=73yaJ

HI,
I also have playlist ADD and love fun catchy tunes.
I have had a lot of luck on the website called bootie blog- it's a mash-up website that has great mixes of familiar songs so they're a drop different and fun to run to.
Recently, I have been obsessed with avicii's "wake me up";
also a fun song you may have heard in a spin class is bob sinclair's "rock this party" (a mix of everybody dance now)
Bruno mars has a little known song "natalie" which is a blast
florence and the machine w calvin harris "say my name"
mohombi has 2 fun songs "i don't want to party without you" and "bumpy ride"
nicki minaj and will i am "check it out"
will i am and miley cyrus "fall down"
timomatic "set it off"
We the kings "check yes juliet"
will i am and eva simmons "this is love"
hope these help! if i can think of more, i will send them to you :)

Joy

If you know of a song that seems to go well with my music taste please let me know.
