Any good song ideas for upbeat choreography? I’m putting together a few full dances for a few girls (aged at 14 and 15) to get exercise, and have fun with! So, any good ideas for songs that you can create hip hop, jazz, or “music video style” dances to? Thanks!-B-

Some great music to go with a documentary about the Vietnam war? Songs like Paint it black or Age of Destruction.Like All along the Watchtower, too. That kind of guitar work always reminds me of Vietnam.
Ohio- Crosby, Stills, Nash & YoungFor What It’s Worth- Buffalo SpringfieldGimme Some Truth- John LennonImagine- John LennonWar- Edwin StarrWhat’s Going On- Marvin GayeBlowin’ In The Wind- Bob DylanMasters Of War- Bob DylanI-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-To-Die-Rag- Country Joe and the FishEve Of Destruction- Barry McGuireFortunate Son- Creedence Clearwater RevivalWho’ll Stop The Rain?- Creedence Clearwater Revival

Well there are so many to chose from but here are a couple off the top of my head.1. Fortunate Son – Creedence Clear Water Revival2.Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix3.Where Have All The Flowers Gone – Pete Seger4.War (What is it good for) – Edwin Starr5.Magic Carpet Ride – SteppenwolfHope this helps a little. Keep in mind that a lot of CCR’s and Jimi Hendrix’s Songs were about the war.

ok i wrote a 12 page research paper on the vietnam war and the whole time i was working on it i listened to this playlist:all along the watchtower – jimi hendrix experiencefor what it’s worth – buffalo springfieldfortunate son – ccrsan francisco (be sure to wear flowers in your hair) – scott mckenzieblowin in the wind – joan baezsittin’ on the dock of the bay – otis reddinglike a rolling stone – bob dylanlookout joe – neil youngbreak on through – the doorshigher ground – stevie wondermagical mystery tour – the beatlestrouble every day – mothers of inventionwhite rabbit – jefferson airplanewar pigs – black sabbathrun through the jungle – ccrare you experienced? – jimi hendrix experiencefree bird – lynyryd skynyrdsuspicious minds – elvis presleyplease, please, please – james brownvolunteers – jefferson airplanewhite room – creampaint it black – the stonesland of 1000 dances – wilson pickettwhat’s going on – marvin gayewar – edwin starrhush – deep purplevisions of johanna – bob dylanpapa’s got a brand new bag – james brownwild thing – the troggssurfin’ bird – the trashmenrunning gun blues – david bowiegimme shelter – the stonesthe unknown soldier – the doorssomebody to love – jefferson airplanesweet home alabama – skynyrdamerican woman – the guess whorainy day women #12 & #35 – bob dylanfixin’ to die rag – country joe mcdonaldmy generation – the whoborn in the u.s.a. – bruce springsteenimagine – john lennonyou haven’t done nothin’ – stevie wonderthe end – the doorsstar spangled banner – jimi hendrixride of the valkyries – budapest symphony orchestraall right now – freealice’s restaurant – arlo guthriehappy xmas (war is over) – john lennon & yoko onoall the songs are either from fiction films/documentaries about the war or mentioned in books about the war or explicity refer to the war in their lyrics.

Straight to Hell by The Clash would be a great song if your documentary includes the children that American GI’s fathered with Vietnamese women.

Billy Joel has a song called “Good Night Saigon”That song is about the Vietman War. Its on his 1982 CD with other songs like “Allentown”, “Laura”, etc. Depeche Mode also has a song called “Agent Orange”You can find both music vids on Youtube , just listen to them and see if you like them or not.also, you buy the songs here toorhapsody.comitunes.comcdbaby.comamazon.com

Listen to a band called Sabaton. Pretty much all of their songs are about war and I’m sure they have some about the Vietnam war.

All the suggestions are great, basically any 60’s/70’s music is great for that time era.I would recommend “American Woman” by the Guess Who. It was written as a protest song to the war.

for what its worth by buffalo springfield would be a good one too, and yeah all along the watchtower would be sweet, i was about to suggest it after glancing at the question but saw that someone beat me to it.
