There are many country songs that are suited to the Electric Slide dance, the key is understanding that the time signature of 4/4 is best suited to this particular dance and any country song that has that or a similar signature, could be suitable.

  • What is the Electric Slide?
The Electric Slide is a dance that was devised primarily for the song Electric Boogie by Marcia Griffiths. It was choreographed by New York based dancer Ric Silver in 1976 and enjoyed huge popularity during the disco era.

  • Can you dance the Electric Slide to Country music?
Given that the Electric Slide is a form of four wall line dance, similar in many ways to line dancing that is popularly performed to country music, it is often suggested that the Electric Slide could be performed equally well to country and western music as it is to disco.

Certainly, given that the original song was in a 4/4 time signature, then technically speaking any country song that fits that structure could potentially be used to perform the dance to. However, songs that have a particularly strong beat (to help with the clapping) and that are not paced too quickly are ideal.
