Songs which mention dance crazes


I find it amusing/cringe and want to feed that sick pleasure

Beach Boys - Surfin’ “and when the surf is down to take its place / we’ll do the surfer stomp it’s the latest dance craze”

Chic - Le Freak “have you heard about the new dance craze? / listen to us I’m sure you’ll be amazed”

Robert Parker - The Hiccup “put your hand on your hip / and let your backbone slip / doing the hiccup”

More plz

Not sure if this counts:


Also: not explicitly a dance craze, but sitting down at an indie disco was apparently The Done Thing in the late 80s/early 90s

I loved when they used this in Mad Men!
