    What I love about WCS is that my favorite tunes to dance it to aren't much different to my favorite tunes in general. :) Love the fact that it can be danced to pretty much anything. That said my current favorites are these:

    Robert Palmer - Addicted to Love
    Mike Morgan - Cause I Love You
    Prince - Cream
    RLJ - Danny's All-Star Joint
    The Commitments - Mustang Sally
    Danny Gatton - Funky Mama
    George Benson - Baby Workout
    Travis Tritt - Honky Tonk Woman
    The Weekend - I Can't Feel My Face
    Duke Durmont - Ocean Drive
    Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk

    Rickie Lee Jones? You know that one? I've got that on vinyl! Love her first album. Never thought of WCS for that song.
    Who plays it (DJ)?

    I got curious about Honky Tonk Woman, found guitar arrangement that maybe even I could learn, and ended up with this http://www.esquire.com/entertainment/music/a931/esq0699-jun-cooder-rev-2/
    says the Stones got the idea for the song from him.

    That Rickie Lee Jones song has been played at WCS comps for a long time! Maybe not that frequently but it's been around a long time.

    Yea I heard it in one of jnj videos that I watched. Never heard of the song before but fortunately Shazam was able to identify the artist.

    And Jason Colacino and Katie Boyle dancing to Honky Tonk Woman is what got me into WCS to begin with :)

    We have an excellent Jazz station here in Portland, KMHD. They've been having it on at the coffee place where I spend a lot of time.
    I heard this one a while ago.

    It's another one I doubt I'll hear out dancing anywhere.

    Take it, Ella. Swing it.

    1956? I wonder...
