Square Breakdancing

Spin your partner on her head...
  [vote for,

Feel the beatbox get under your skin
Listen to the fiddle now, let's begin

Bow to your partner.
Bow to your corner.

Worm with your corner around the floor,
now do the wave just like Al Gore.

Do the moonwalk do-see-do,
Better call your H.M.O.

Now do a clockwise windmill 'round
When yer' tired, fall to the ground...

Next up, the Electric Bottle-Dance...

       I'm trying to envision a "country music beatbox"...

       I think the Beastie Boys already covered this territory. http://www.beastieboys.com/timeline/index.php?year=1998

       Ray, you may be surprised to learn that square dancing actually plays an integral role in the advent and public awareness of break dancing, as a result of one of Malcolm MacLaren's "Buffalo Gals"... one of his more successful experiments in, what, 1982, maybe '83?   

       "Three buffalo gals go 'round the outside
'Round the outside
'Round the outside
Three buffalo gals go 'round the outside
And do-si-do your partner..."

       One of the first major hip-hop releases and my personal first exposure to serious break dancing. Backwards baked.   

       This is surprisingly well trodden territory. A more recent example (and of enlightenment to thcgenius) is the re-recording of "Cotton-Eyed Joe" a few years back, to the intense dance beat. Which itself is at least partially inspired by the trance-groove bluegrass of groups like Grid in the early 90s.   

       A good argument could be made that square dance calling is essentially the first form of rap, too.

       Swing your partner 'round and 'round. Buss' a cap in 'dat ass, 'till dey fall down, sucka! GLOCK! GLOCK!   

       Waugs: I know the song.. dear god, would it please die?! What I meant by the beatbox thing was a guy trying to bust country music beats into a microphone using his mouth, instead of the "Fat Boys" beatbox sound used by rappers, breakdancers, etc..

       See the video for "Where It's At" by Beck. Line dancing to (faux) hip hop.

       I'd like to see this on the bouncy dancefloor.
