Some great live songs by some great lookin people

Smith "Baby It's You" Live (cover song)

I gotta say, I'm kind of into the whole sitting around the band looking too cool for school/bored out of their minds. Nowadays, if you get that close to the band you'll most likely go home deaf and blind from the blast of bass and booming overpowering lighting effects. Only Gayle McCormack could wear that cowboyish indian period piece sleeved shirt and get away with it -- maybe Janis Joplin too. Gotta love the way she dances too...kindof like she's trying to let you know that she likes the drugs when she's not performing.

Jackie Wilson "Baby Work It Out" Live 1964

Oh Jackie. Look at those moves. It has been told that when Michael Jackson was backstage singing with his brothers in The Jackson Five, he saw Jackie Wilson dancing and swinging his hips around and realized that he wanted to dance just like that -- and so he did...kindof sortof...minus all the crotch grabbing and moon walking...
I'd like to dance like/with Jackie Wilson.

Ike and Tina Turner "Proud Mary" Live
You HAVE to watch this video the whole way through...or at least until they all start dancing.
Tina's backup girls are probably the best backup singers/dancers to have, ever.
Look at those dresses! If I can even call them dresses...Look at those long tank tops!
Oh and um, check out the faces on Tina when she's "rolling, rolling, rolling on the reeeaavaaahh"

The Rolling Stones "Start Me Up" music video

I don't know what this says about me but this is how I learned to dance and surprisingly enough, it's won me quite the batch of ladies! Only Mick Jagger can get away with looking sexy in purple leotard and white gypsy pants. Prancing around like some kid who just learned to walk on a sugar high. Keith looks like he's been revived from the dead a few times. Ronnie looks like a drag queen, and Charlie looks like their father.

Start me up Mick.
