D is for Dancing!! Huge Party at #ROW80 Today…

OMG, I’m still sore from starting the party at Midnight and cutting a rug with Barbara McDowell and Lena Corazon, your #ROW80 Throwback Party co-hosts!

Since I joined the party, these songs have been on the playlist:

And this INCREDIBLE 70’s Dance Mix Video (Gloria Gaynor! Need I say more?)!

There’s a blog competition for this party as well – the best what I’ve seen so far is Shah Wharton‘s (Holy cowbell, the photos…).

Party Parameters to get you started!

  • Theme: “Throwback Party” Oh yes, we are going WAY back.  This party is a celebration of generations, music, and fashions.  We want you to come on Wednesday ready to kick it like you used to “back in the day.”  All outfits are welcome, Lena’s stirring up some munchies and beverages to last all night, and DJ Barbara will be spinning tunes for all decades.
  • Date: April 4, 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM EST in the U.S. This will also be the first day of Round Two check-in so there should be a bevy of ROW80 peeps and friends wandering around the blogosphere.
  • Party will be held at the #ROW80 hashtag. Include it in your Tweet and join in!
  • Blog with Photos Competition: From April 2 to April 8, Barbara and Lena want us to keep the party going and post some “Throwback Party” ROW80 celebrations.  Make sure to include some pics in the post that reflect the theme and let your party monster rage.

To enter the blog competition:

  • Create a blog that reflects the “Throwback Party” theme.
  • Creativity is a plus as are great pictures.  We know there are some folks holding a treasure of pics showing them in their glory with bell bottom, platform shoes, biker, poodle skirts, and tie-dyed ponchos.
  • They will look at the comments on our ROW80 blogs for recommendations of top picks as well as review them all for inclusion of top picks/faves in a mashup and for your vote.

If you’re doing your first ROW80 check-in today, click here to add yourself to the linky and cheer on your fellow teammates. I’m going to do my first check-in on Sunday when I’ve gotten myself back under control. Today is all about the party. 🙂

I’ll be popping in and out of #ROW80 all day long for some snacks, drinks and a bunch of seriously groovy dancing. What songs do you want on Barbara’s playlist? Give us the links down in the comments so we can all dance along! Are you going to join Round 2? Enquiring minds always  want to know here are More Cowbell!


Don’t forget! Today is the launch of the Life List Club blog! Our debut post is by Sherry Isaac – click over here and show her some love, OK?

  1. Thanks for the shout-out for my post. Read it when I returned from the dentist and saw loads of errors – which I’ve ironed out. That’s what you get for throwing something up before bed because you forget to do it BEFORE you drank wine at sensible-0-clock! Off to catch up with other party-goers 😀


  2. What a great post!!! And I love the Bee Gees… 🙂 I love reading the Life List blogs.. Hopefully when the summer rolls around I can get in on the action…

    Great D Post Jenny.. Happy Wednesday!


  3. My first concert was Andy Gibb! (People were smoking some very funny smelling cigarettes!)

      That’s hilarious. Besides the Peter, Paul and Mary concerts my mom took me too, my first concert was Journey, Triumph, Aldo Nova and Blue Oyster Cult. There were some funny smelling cigarettes there too. 🙂

    Gloria Gaynor rocks. And thanks for sharing Sarah Warton’s awesome post. Holy cowbell what 80s nostalgy.


  5. Ahhh, Gloria Gaynor! Awesome. I always liked Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart. They rocked. White Lightening And Wine is one of my all time favorite songs. It’s definitely a ‘go-get-em’ mood setter!


  6. Sherry Isaac says:

    We are in sync this morning, Jenny. I woke up with ‘I Will Survive’ in my head, and I’m on my way to Shah’s post. Yay.
    You do throw some party!

    Yay for party!!! See you all on the #ROW80 hashtag 😉


  13. The remote DJ has landed and is making notes! We are playing all kinds of fun grooves today. And just wait for the noon EST lunch time cardio break. Oh yeah. I’m taking off my suit coat for this one. Go ROWers and friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Around dinner time, I’m cranking up some coffee so you can get a second wind and hang to the end. Party like you are 18 again!

    *cough* I’m checking for goals on Sunday as well. Obviously, I’m all caught up in the party. 🙂


  14. Karen McFarland says:

    I am dancing all the way over to the party now! I hope there’s some Rock n’ Roll! Party, party! Have a great day Jenny! 🙂


  15. Fabio Bueno says:

    I need a drink. Then I’ll DANCE! 🙂


  16. Rock on! I’m having flashbacks of Rupert Holmes Escape, Sailing with Christopher Cross and Ladies Night with Kool and the Gang.
