Sam Smith not only dominates the charts with his signature vocals, but westies hear his music around the WCS scene a lot now. On top of having raw vocal talent, he pairs up with record producers/DJs who create these lively dance tracks. The lyrics of this catchy record possess a very “tongue and cheek” attitude.
I’m covering my ears like a kid
When your words mean nothing, I go la la la.
I’m turning up the volume when you speak.
‘Cause if my heart can’t stop it,I find a way to block it, I go La la, la la la la la.
You will see a lot of the time westies playing a long not only with the lyrics but the music as well. That is what creates the musicality and character of the dance.
Jordan Frisbee and Jessica Cox danced as part of the pro staff for this year’s Midwest Westie Fest. Their lead and follow demo fit perfectly with this track. Jordan gave Jessica plenty of opportunities to flair. He also had fun with it as well! (I love Jordan’s little toe points at 2:56!) They had beautiful lines and great rondes to accent the slower beats of music. Great example of dancing to a contemporary track. Check out their demo below!
