OK, I admit it...I Looooove a particular song by Flogging Molly that has a very Middle Eastern melody line to it; the song is about pirates and I can't help but dance when I hear it!

I wanna do a performance to this song!!!! But not in a ME restaurant, just at a student night performance in the local mexican restaurant.

Just had to get that off my chest...cuz otherwise I might just have to do something to Junk in the Trunk (My Humps) by the Black Eye Peas. Anybody else feel a compulsion to just go to town on that song?

I often practice moves to rock music. As long as you lable this dance inspired by or experimental or something like that so people don't think it's authentic I don't see a problem at all. Have fun and good luck. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Confesting a bellydance sin:

OMG!!! LMAO!! That's awesome! OK, now I don't feel quite so sinful.

And yes, this song would be part of a routine lasting about 7 minutes, and the only non - ME song I would be using.

Bahahahaha that's a good one :p Never saw the bellydance potential in Prodigy, but now that you mention is "Firestarter" would be great for shimmying... ;)

My own sin is that whenever I hear a song that is very "danceable" (in the broad sense of the term, not just bellydance) I cannot dance in any other way than with bellydance moves :rolleyes: Well, it's not exactly a sin, right? It's just that I am dance-challenged and cannot get bellydance out of my body, right? :cool:

Someone on Bhuz wanted to dance in a camel costume to My Humps, that would be sooooo funny!

Pirate belly dance:

Flogging Molly!

I know EXACTLY which song you are talking about.... "Another Bag of Bricks", right?
I've practiced to that before and was always too chicken to choreograph "for real" to it. My teacher is a bit of a traditionalist and if I ever performed it it would have to be in secret....

I always thought that son would be fantastic to work with though. You should go for it! Let us know how it goes.....
Unlike most modern punkish/ska/irish/pirate rock....I would admit it has strong mid-eastern undertones.

The guys from FM would be mighty flattered....and I'll tell Matt Hensley next time I see him there are bellydancers out there choreographing to the music. He'd be tickled.

Yep -- that be da song! I also like the earlier one on that CD that's more of a sea chanty type of song, and have had some rocking drills to that one as well.

Looove that song!
