"The Good Life" – Robin Thicke. Album: Blurred Lines (iTunes) Approx 3.13mins

Notes: 1 Tag at the end of the 1st wall – Right backwards rocking chair (1,2,3,4)
You will notice on the counts that I have included ‘a’ as a count, if you haven’t heard of this before here is a brief explanation.
When we count in dance it really could be ‘1 e & a 2 e & a 3’ etc, in this particular track you are stepping on the ‘a’ count which is just after ‘&’, the easiest place in the dance to understand this is section 18-24 on the cross side rock as you are using both '&' and 'a'.
If you are an instructor this might confuse some of your students, so I wouldn’t place too much emphasis on it, they should dance on rhythm once they hear the song.
