Shake Your Jungle Boogie in Dance Central

Shake Your Jungle Boogie in Dance Central


I'm sure everybody wants to dance to the newfangled pop songs in Dance Central, but I'm psyched for the oldies.

The complete track list for Harmonix's Dance Central was announced today. I got to dance a couple of these tracks (Beastie Boys' "Body Movin'" and No Doubt's "Hella Good") at San Diego Comic Con this summer and I'm glad to see they made the cut. But what I'm really excited about is sweating to the oldies like "Brick House" and "Jungle Boogie." Dance Central is a launch title of Microsoft's Kinect which is in stores on November 4th.

Check out all of the songs that you can shake your bootie to in Dance Central below. I've heard of most of these, but I have to wonder about that first title. Isn't that something most people figure out on their own?

Audio Push -- "Teach Me How To Jerk"
Basement Jaxx -- "Rendez-vu"
Beastie Boys -- "Body Movin' (Fatboy Slim Remix)"

Pump Up The Jam! This is now a day one purchase for me!

It's not about dancing until it contains Kenny Loggins' Footloose!

Wow, I would so buy this if I could dance to Footloose.

What about Dancing on the Ceiling?

I'd buy practically anything if it contained Footloose...

And you just made me realize what probably every single dance game ever lacked: the Napoleon Dynamite dance! There goes the genre.

Greg Tito:
Soulja Boy Tell 'Em -- "Crank That (Soulja Boy)"

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH, Not again, not again, I don't want that tune stuck in my head again, NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!

OT: I barely know any of those songs, but then again the same thing happened with Guitar Hero and does happen with me for Rock Band and I love to play most of the songs, so who knows, maybe I'll get my groove on.

Doubtful since I don't have a 360 nor do I intend to get one, but this one game looks pretty interesting out of the pile of shovelware the Kinect seems to have. That's not saying much, unfortunately.

Oooh.... Funky Town. :) That'll be my first attempt.

There's far too much shit outweighing the good stuff on that list. No way I'll consider buying now. And yes, I was considering it before I saw this...I still enjoy me some DDR.

This will be at The Escapist New Year's Eve party. And I shall make a complete fool of myself and love doing it.

P-push it REAL GOOD!

The one game I want for Kinect only gets better and better.

I fucking love that song.

Most likely Basement Jaxx - Rendez-vous

Oops, I was thinking I posted in the pole.

I'll alter this to say, wow I didn't care about this before but now that I see the song list I HATE it.

Here comes the brand new flava in ya ear! Greatest song ever.

I mean come on, Busta Rhymes starts off his verse with 'Flava's in yo ass grease.' You can't top that.

Well I won't ever be owning a Kinect, but if someone I know gets one, I will indeed be gettin' on down with Don't Sweat the Technique, Funky Town, Pump Up the Jam and Bust a Move. There more songs on that list that I like than I was expecting, to be honest.

Dammit, no Safety Dance.

Oh well, I'll settle for Poison.

I'd love to learn how to dance like that!
