This will clear the dance floor

Postby GoogaMooga » 25 Apr 2021, 17:08

Imagine a scenario where there is an improvised party going on and you walk in, and seeing your chance, put on a CD with "Can You Feel the Force?" by The Real Thing, all seven minutes of it. WHAM! You've cleared the dancefloor.



What other disco or dance hits are sure to clear the dance floor?

Why would either of those songs clear a dance floor?

The idea was to find a disco or dance tune that you think would clear a dance floor. So my candidate would be "Can You Feel the Force?", because I did clear a dancefloor with that CD once, at a small gathering in a hostel one NYE. Don't know if that counts, but that is my experience with "Can You Feel the Force?" anyway. Hard to believe it is the same vocal group that gave us "You to Me Are Everything".

Location, location, location.






Have seen folks fill the floor to the Amoo's classic Can You Feel the Force. Was in a club in Liverpool, home territory of course.


Great band, their second album, 4 from 8 is a classic.

To clear the floor at any dance I'd care to be seen at I recommend the Birdie Song.

That’s bizarre. Both CYFTF and Virginia Plain are two of the most dance provoking tunes out there.

Virginia Plain came out in 1972 I think. I was 18 and blown away by that single. On our Saturday nights out I always bothered the DJ to get that single and play it. It was weeks before he finally bought it.
I was kidding, it didn't clear the dancefloor.

Nothing clears a dance floor faster than Prog, stick Supper's Ready on and watch everyone leave in an instant.

Even I'd get up and dance to that, seems like a great choice to dance to.

It is true that "Can You Feel the Force?" was The Real Thing's biggest disco hit, and I had not expected the floor to clear in an instant. Even if it were no more than a half dozen people, they obviously wanted something else, and put on a more current CD. I don't think "CYFTF?" is that great, certainly not in the same league as "You to Me Are Everything". "Can You Feel the Force?" is heavy-handed and over-long, thudding and brutal. And it goes on for 7+ minutes.
