6. A song that makes you want to dance

I am not, on the whole, a dancing person. "But it's just moving to the music," people say, but that's the problem. What if the way I move to the music looks stupid? I do not want to have to show spontaneous grace and creativity when other people might be watching me. (Plus, on my very few visits to clubs where people dance, the music was always too loud, the lights too weird, the crowd too crowded.)

However, back when my knees were younger, I did enjoy ceili dancing. The great thing about ceili dancing is that it's not spontaneous. There are steps! You don't have to be creative. You don't, at least at the ceilis I went to, have to be particularly graceful, either.

So here's some Irish traditional music, the sort of thing you might hear at a ceili. And if Martin Hayes, one of the finest fiddlers of his generation, plays at your ceili, you're privileged indeed.
