Song of the Day Feb 11

February 11, 2024


This month I’m focusing on Love Songs from the 70s.


Today our song is:  Dance With Me


Wikipedia tells us this about the song:


"Dance with Me" is a 1975 hit single by American soft rock band Orleans from their second studio album, Orleans II (1974). 

The song was written by group member John Hall and journalist-turned-lyricist Johanna Hall (then a married couple). According to Johanna, John wrote the melody first; Johanna suggested "Dance with Me" as the title after she first heard it, but John rejected the idea as too simple. The couple were out driving one day when Johanna, struck by inspiration, blurted out the lyrics: "Pick the beat up and kick your feet up", and John was won over to the idea of her writing the song's lyric for the title "Dance With Me"






Enjoy!
