I am a human dancer ;)

“Cut the cord
are we human or are we dancer
my sign is vital,
my hands are cold
and I´m on my knees
looking for the answer
are we human or are we dancer”

I found this lyrics (performed by The Killers) a bit troubelling, don’t you? I read somewhere that “the lyrics were inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson about how America was raising a generation of dancers”. Ok… meaning? It seems better to raise a nation of dancers and not terorrists or drug addicts, doesn’t it? Just when I think about my life before salsa and the type of parties society kinda forced me to attend and compare that to more sincere, casual and friendly version of a salsa party… well the latter wins. There’s nothing wrong with being a dancer, even if you are a guy. 😉 It’s a way of meeting new people, exercising and keeping your mind busy and off job or school issues.
Dancing has a lot of advanatages I never really realized or understood, but with each year I dance, I begin to understand the meaning of dance more, its interpretation of what musicians and singers do. Dancing is interpretaion of beats and rythms. And so is life. Your heartbeat tells you what you can and cannot do, it runs your life and stops when it has enough. Therefore, dancing is life as well, since it’s made on beats 🙂 It sure is my life! Which is why I can’t choose between human and a dancer. I’m both! 🙂
