Well, I don’t know if this counts, but it does in my mind.  I love Earth, Wind, & Fire!  September is one of my all time favorite songs and they have so many other good ones.  Also, lots of Michael Jackson.  A good way to get some ideas would be to set up a station on Pandora station using a song or artist you like and just start jotting down songs that come up.

The Temptations!  I have a lot of songs of their on my workout mix, so it must be good for dancing, too! 🙂

@Jaynee:  I agree that “September” is a fun one!

I can’t believe I’m going to say this but Kool and the Gang’s Celebration always gets people on the dance floor. 🙂

I love Aint Too Proud to Beg and This Old Heart of Mine. AND DO YOU LOVE ME BY THE CONTOURS! That’s probably one of my favorite Motown songs.
