134 Alternative Songs for the Electric Slide Line Dance

Posted on Posted in Line Dancing, playlists

Thank you Marcia Griffiths for bringing us what has to be the world’s most popular line dance, the Electric Slide…unfortunately after decades of dancing the Electric Slide to Griffiths’ “Electric Boogie” song, it’s time for a few alternatives! Did you know the original Electric Slide line dance was choreographed BEFORE I WAS BORN (1976, according to Wikipedia)…although Griffiths’ song was not released until 1990.

Drum roll please
