‘Let’s Twist Again’, back in 61,

Chubby Checker urged us to do.

And ‘Twisting The Night Away’, a year later,

was Sam Cooke, at Number 6 in 62.

 

Actor and Singer – Paul Nicholas

was ‘Dancing With The Captain’ in 83,

and in 84 & 85 – Bruce Springsteen

was ‘Dancing In The Dark’, so expert-lee.

 

‘Dancing With Tears In My Eyes’,

in 84, found Ultravox at Number 3,

after telling us ‘We Came To Dance’,

the year before, in 83.

 

In 80, ‘Dance Yourself Dizzy’ by Liquid Gold,

had us heading for the dance floor.

And ‘Smooth Operator’ by Sade

made sure we were grooving in 84.

 

In 95, ‘Disco 2000’ saw Pulp

reaching as high as number 7,

but in 97, ‘Discotheque’ by U2 –

at Number 1 – sent us to heaven.

 

In 77 and 78 ‘Disco Inferno’,

did very well for The Trammps’.

In at Number 5 in 58, never forgotten,

is ‘Tequila’ by The Champs

 

In 85, ‘You Spin Me Round (like a record)’ –

a Number 1 for ‘Dead Or Alive.

Long after Wizzard, in 73,

was at Number 1 with ‘See My Baby Jive’.

 

In 76, The Isaac Hayes Movement,

had a Top 10 with ‘Disco Connection’.

Following Hamilton Bohannon, in 75,

who gave us ‘Disco Stomp’, also perfection.

 

‘Dancing On The Ceiling’ was Lionel Richie,

in 86, with his usual appeal.

And in 96, George Michael made sure of No.2,

with his hit song ‘Spinning The Wheel’

 

In 83, Galaxy featuring Phil Fearon gave us

‘Dancing Tight’ in their special way.

In 84, Abba with ‘Dancing Queen’,

at number 1 for a 6 weeks stay.

 

A big, feel-good hit of 65, was

‘The Lover’s Concerto by The Toys,

and riding high with DJ Culture,

in 91, were The Pet Shop Boys.

 

In 77 with ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’

Nile Rogers & Chic grooved into the Top Ten,

followed in 78 by ‘Everybody Dance’ –

so easily doing it again.

 

Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, in 64 had us,

‘Dancing In The Street’ all the way home.

And in 2008 ‘Dance Wiv Me’ at Number 1, for

Dizzie Rascal, featuring Calvin Harris & Chrome.

 

Whatever era your dance step,

from Latin to Disco or Jive,

as long as you shimmy your body,

the longer, on this earth, you’ll survive.

 

Whatever music gets you on the dance floor,

no matter how weird you may look –

Just do your own thing and enjoy it,

until the shake in you, is all shook!
