525,600 minutes…how do you measure, measure a yearrrrrr? I’ll tell you how. On a Sunday afternoon in January, with a solid hour of 2011’s greatest hits courtesy of the one and only DJ Chelles Belles. When she said “best of,” she wasn’t messing around:
You know who else wasn’t messing around? The NEARLY 30 WOMEN that came to the studio to sweat their asses off!!! Whether we have good ol’ (semi) winter weather or New Year’s resolutions to thank, or DJ U.N.I.T.Y’s killer Facebook status updates…well, who’s to say? We all know it’s Unity anyway. But let me tell you- I have never been so happy to have so little space to dance in! The packed, energetic, sauna-like atmosphere was giving off some serious happiness vibes.
And DJ Chelles Belles didn’t even give us a moment to breathe! Every song was a belt-it-out, dance-until-you-hyperventilate hit. I personally recognized almost every single song on the playlist, except for one notable exception: I may be the last person on earth who hasn’t seen the new Muppet movie, so it was my first time being introduced to the song “Me Party.” And it was a revelation. First of all, hearing Miss Piggy’s voice out of context is like a mysterious gift, and also- could this song be more hilarious and perfect for DDPP? AND it gave one amazing man the inspiration to make this video:
Can’t you just imagine all the men in your lives that are jealous of DDPP doing this at home while you’re out dancing with us? I can and will, forever and ever.
Finally, while we’re on the subject of the best of 2011, I implore all of you to click on the link below and check out what could be the coolest dance video/movie of 2011, featuring not only the killer Girl Talk track that Chelles Belles rocked us with, but pretty much that entire album.
I want to invite every one of those people to DDPP…especially the Creep. Come on, he’s clearly everyone’s fave.
DJ Chelles Belles, thank you for throwing us a we party!!!
