Which song would you rather see a dance to? - February 15th 2009, 09:47 PM

So I'm a dancer, and I'm applying to choreograph a dance for my school's spring dance concert, and I'm wondering what song you guys like best, and would rather see a dance too. Whichever song I pick, it'll probably be a lyrical/jazz dance.

This year, not everyone who wants to choreograph a dance will be able to- more potential choreographers than there are spots. I really want to be chosen as a choreographer- especially since it looks like I won't be able to perform in my studio's recital (it's probably the same day as my high school graduation!) so I want to make sure that I choose a good song.

There have been a lot of interesting dances in the past few years- a really big variety. Most of the people watching the performance will be students at my school who are not dancers (so things like "is this overused in dance competitions?" are completely irrelevant). The general consensus among non-dancer students is that it's more enjoyable when the songs are ones that they recognize.

So, out of the following, which song would you rather see a dance to? You don't have to be a dancer to respond, by the way. Which, do you think, would lend itself to the best choreography?
-"Decode" by Paramore (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THGWc...eature=related)
-"Viva La Vida" by Coldplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5TNK-TvIcI)
-"One Thing" by Finger Eleven (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnOvGGGf6qA)
-"Love Remains The Same" by Gavin Rossdale (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8R8Qvm24dbU)
-"Heaven" by Angels & Airwaves (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJRtLRepdAU)- I wouldn't use the full version, I would use an edited version that basically cuts out some of the un-neccessarily long instrumentals
-"Meant To Live" by Switchfoot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72FkCoJfhgU)
-"Anxiety" by Good Charlotte" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wytKhASV-g)
-"Stairway To Heaven" by Led Zeppelin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_jlde4lPTw&feature=related)- For the sake of time, I would edit it to ~5 minutes or less

Meant to live by switchfoot... just because last year some friends of mine did an awesome dance to it and it was brilliant.

but if not that then decode by paramore because i think the change in speed would be really effective. Xx

Agreed with Tegan the change in speed in Decode, would be good x

Yes, I agree with the other two! Plus Decode is one of my fav. songs right now anyway. If not that then...One Thing by Finger Eleven

I would shy away from Stairway because it's not editable!! There simply aren't 2 minutes of music you can cut out in that song

I would do Decode.

Hmm Zeppelin for the auditory excellence but cutting it down is like desecrating a church, it just should never happen

I think Coldplay would be so neat to dance to.
(although I'm maybe being bias, since I adore Viva La Vida :P)
But the song has so much history and passion behind it,
It would be amazing to see something choreographed to it, and
it'd be orignal, I'd think.

I voted Meant to Live. I don't know why, but I'd love to do a dance to that song. So I think you should, too.

I choreographed my dance line's lyrical Homecoming piece to "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay and had an absolute ball with the whole thing. I'm currently working on something to "Meant to Live" by Switchfoot. When you're done, tape yourself! I want to see how yours turns out. [:

All of the songs you've picked are good. Go through each one, close your eyes, and listen to them. When you find yourself absolutely aching to dance at the end of a song, you know you've found the one. Good luck!
