I used to study with an old big band station on in the background (KLBB - was sad when it changed formats).Ella was great.I am pretty sure she never needed to twerk on stage to keep the audience's attention.

I admit to signing along at loud volume to at least 3 ABBA songs whenever I hear em.  Not proud of it, but there it is.

 

You are the dancin' queen...

 

Ouch. I do this, too. Sound just like Frida.

Probably not. Wide range of genre's, but I'm pretty picky. Don't listen to the radio much b/c most of what I hear I cannot stand.
