Your Favorite Flash Mob Music
Please share your favorite songs that have been used (or that you wish would be used) in a Flash Mob.
Flash mobs are a relatively new social development in which a group of people assemble in public spontaneously or in a pre-planned manner to dance a particular dance together while listening to music. Flash mob - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first flash mobs were created in Manhattan in 2003. I think of them as being the natural outgrowth of our complex, large society's use of technology to share music and arrange for public congregations of people who long for a feeling of cohesion and community in an otherwise impersonal culture. Rather like a music forum, except with dancing!
My favorite flash mob music is...
"Zorba's Dance" -- song composed by Mikis Theodorakis.
I love this song and I love the dance, since I am an enthusiastic international folk dancer.
Official Ottawa Greek Festival (GreekFest) Flash Mob - YouTube
And here is a nice performance of the song, "Zorba's Dance," sans dancing:

P.S. I'm hoping this thread will inspire some of you out there to arrange Flash Mobs in your own communities!
