I’d rather dance with you

thanks to lance for reminding me of this brilliant video. i was just reliving this song the other day, particularly these lyrics:

Even if I could hear what you said
I doubt my reply would be interesting for you to hear
Because I haven’t read a single book all year
And the only film I saw, I didn’t like it at all

i’m sure those of you who are socially awkward can relate! if i go to a party these days i’ll get a few drinks in me and hit the dance floor as soon as possible. it breaks down so many barriers, eh? plus it’s fun.

happy friday all – hope you get some dancing in.

    If everyone listened to Kings of Convenience or Whitest Boy Alive all of the time, there would be a lot more super chilled, smiling people in the world :)

    Spread the word. Spread the love.

    Oh gosh, how funny! I stumbled upon a website the other day where people post mix tapes they’ve created and give their mixes hilarious titles, and I saw this song on one of the mixes that made me laugh, so I listened to it on youtube and LOVED it! The guys are from Norway, which is especially awesome…
