The 20 greatest kitchen disco songs!

Whenever I am in the kitchen cooking I have to have music on. The music falls into two types. Songs that I can sing along to, those that I can sing very loudly to like power ballads or songs that I can have a little dance to.

New research of British families has revealed the kitchen disco, complete with wooden spoons for microphones and embarrassing dad dancing, is alive and well with four in ten households enjoying more home discos over the last 18 months than ever before!

When it comes to family kitchen discos Saturday night at 6pm was revealed to be the most common time for families to have a boogie, while half of parents said dancing with their kids had lifted their spirits over the last year. That is so true. We always seem to congregate in the kitchen on a Saturday night as we are all home, ready for something nice to eat and a bit of fun with it being the weekend.

Dancing in the kitchen must be good for our mental health, to let off a bit of steam and just to have a bit of fun. I know if I have had a dance in the kitchen I always leave smiling and it certainly gives the kids something to laugh about.

I can honestly say I have most probably danced to all of these songs in my kitchen, have you?


  1. I always used to have the music blasting while working away in the kitchen. I'm not so sure about dancing, I've never been much of a mover even when I could. Unfortunately, we no longer have tunes in the kitchen but I'm tempted to buy a new radio or CD player now, especially as I'm singing all your tunes! My Nephew and his wife have regular kitchen discos on a Saturday night, generally when they are little 'worse for wear' and they record them. It always gives me a giggle xx

  2. Love this! Yes we're always belting a few tunes out in our house and I can be seen dancing along. The kids almost always join in as well. In fact most of the get togethers we have around ours at the weekend involves music, and with a little alcohol thrown in, there are some pretty crazy dance moves going on, hehe. xx

  3. Haha you have picked some crackers x #mmbc
