Probably not enough dance-pop features slide guitar. So wouldn't mind if Swedish singer Noonie Bao's catchy single "Bodywork Lover" started a trend, everybody following suit to swap in slinky cowboy notes for the saxophone solos that dominated 2012. Watch the video above, shot somewhere lovely. Noonie has a jerky style of solo-dance, but her voice is the real star here, punching the syllables on the sweep-you-up chorus—Baby tell me who is dancing with you now, who's dancing with you. Sadly, her debut album, I Am Noonie Bao, is only for sale on Swedish iTunes, but the whole thing is streaming on Spotify.
