In perhaps the cutest study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, psychologist Marcel Zentner and Tuomas Eerola found that babies will spontaneously boogie when they hear music and other rhythmic sounds. The findings suggest babies are not great dancers, but they smile more when they do hit the beat.

@tsarstepan,
I'm sure you've seen this one...it's been traveling FB for a while. But it's amazing to me that this baby can do what he/she does. Really adorable.

So this study is not that surprising - just in watching my own babies and their movements. Pretty cool though.

@mismi,
cannot explain the whys behind it, but when my twin niecey and nephew were very wee yikes, (less than 2) they would stop and dance like hell every time this song came on the radio or Mtv.

I know, how inappropriate is that?

but cute as hell. (my sis still has a vid somewhere)

@mismi,
That baby can groove! Though there is no real use trying to blame the child for his parents bad taste in music! Mad

@Rockhead,
It's got a good beat...easy to dance to. I give it an 82.

Phooey Tsars - it's a fun song.

and yes, seeing babies dance to songs that are inappropriate is pretty dadgum cute.
