Follow the Leader

Last night for dinner, my husband made a delicious curry. He called it a bit “peppy” which means that it was a little hot. My daughter sang the words, “My mouth, my mouth, my mouth is on fire!” to the tune of Follow the Leader. As always, the song made me think of when I used to compete in Ballroom and Latin American competitions. They always played this song during the interval and it was fun to “follow the leader” and do the line dance. It was especially fun to see all the competitors in their costumes moving to music for the pure enjoyment of moving to the music.

It has been decades since I have danced to this song in a large group. It will, however, always hold pleasant memories for me.

  1. He, he,he, listening to this music I could not help thinking of what we call the generation gap – but that makes life worthy to be alive, have your own choice, but accept other choices/tastes/preferences without acrimony.


    1. It always surprises me, to be honest, when young children know this song. Even though this version of the song was released in 2010, I was dancing to it in the late 90s.
      As for the generation gap – I love those older songs. I am thinking I need to share some of those next week 🙂


  2. That was the theme song of a children’s show my children used to watch. We would make a game of it when walking to the store or the park. If you didn’t “follow the leader” exactly, you went to the end of the line.
