Today seemed like a good day to celebrate a Taraday.
I'm a Stones fan...AND a Beatles fan. The two are not mutually exclusive no matter what some will say.
When I Googled the phrase "Dance Like Mick Jagger" this site was the first hit. Some interesting quotes from M.Jagger and others on his performance style. This quote was my favorite:
I get a strange feeling onstage. I feel all this energy coming from an audience. They need something from life and are trying to get it from us... I entice the audience, of course I do. I do it every way I can think of... What I'm doing is a sexual thing. I dance, and all dancing is a replacement for sex. What really upsets people is that I'm a man and not a woman. I don't do anything more than a lot of girl dancers, but they're accepted because it's a man's world. What I do is very much the same as a girl's striptease dance.
- Mick Jagger, 1966
I think it is an interesting, although not new idea, that dancing is a replacement for sex. Is it?
