  • Thank you for the dance Kay. Growing up in the motor city, I’m still swinging and swaying whenever Motown is playing.

  • This song is absolutely astonishing to me. Every time I hear it, and watch these women singing and dancing their hearts out, incredible.

  • Great song! They used to block off the streets on Friday and Saturday nights just for this – brings back good memories.

    • Oh, man that’s a good one.

  • Thank you Kay! Brought back great memories. You just can’t help feeling happy and wanting to dance when you hear that song!!!

  • I didn’t know about this book, thanks for writing about it! This song is part of a playlist that helps me through this time that’s pretty challenging for me. Also Wake Up Everybody, For What It’s Worth, several John Lennon songs, Everyday People, and a little Dancing in the Moonlight.

    Thanks as always for MDK, but this past week especially!

    • Dancing in the Moonlight is special to me too. Instant sharp memory. Love to you, JM. Hang tough.

  • Thanks for the recommendation. I loved Cod and Salt and I really love Martha and the Vandellas

  • One of my favorite songs – I need to get this book! Thanks for the recommendation! (And don’t forget – you can probably get it from your local library, too.)

  • Just bought it, and played the video, too. Thank you!

  • If you loved a book about a fish and salt, try one about a house… House by Tracey Kidder.
