It’s finally that time of the year when it’s starting to get warm out. The sun is shining, everyone has spring fever, and you just want to be out and about having fun. Now, the only thing missing is a nice, upbeat, catchy song. That’s where “Shut Up and Dance” comes in.

Walk the Moon, an American indie/alternative rock band, released the single “Shut Up and Dance” from their third album, “Talking is Hard,” in Sept. 2014. This chart-topping, upbeat song has become a favorite between my friends and I.

The second my friends and I hear the opening beat, we have to get up and dance. We cannot resist the urge to belt out the lyrics, despite the fact that none of us can sing. This song instantly puts all of us in a good mood. I have no doubt that this song will become my summer anthem.
