Song Of The Day: STRANGEWAYS – Dance With Somebody

Listen to “Dance With Somebody” Here:

The Scottish AOR force – Strangeways, reached their commercial peak with “Native Sons” in 1987. With the arrival of new vocalist, Terry Brock, the band made a statement on the AOR scene but unfortunately that statement didn’t last for that long. Despite producing a top-quality radio-ready album, full of great rockers, “Native Sons” still remains one of the long-lost AOR treasures. Thankfully, there are still people like me who haven’t forgotten about the album and the band.

The opening track from “Native Sons”, “Dance with Somebody” is an instant attention grabber; it’s also my favorite tune from the album. Catchy, uplifting, empowering and immensely stylish – “Dance With Somebody” is the perfect example of what a melodic rock tune should sound like. I truly wish it received more recognition than it got!

It’s a simple song, carrying a simple message – if you want to experience something different and are ready to be taken by the heat, don’t be scared and live for the moment; there’s no need to feel lonely and be afraid, grab her hand and dance to the rhythm of your heartbeat. Who knows, maybe you will forget about everything you are going through and can even fall in love again?


 

“Dance with Somebody” Lyrics

I want to go where it feels right
The look in her eyes when I see her tonight
Will she know what’s on my mind
Love, is it love that I’m looking for
Or just an emotion, it’s so hard to say
Could it be that I’m wasting my time
So lonely, here I go again
You know I’m only looking for a friend

Chorus:
Dance to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Feel the heat as she’s holding you tight
Dance to the rhythm of the back beat
Will you dance with somebody tonight

Does she know what I’m going through
I need her love to save me tonight
Why can’t I say what I feel
She looks away as I’m trying to be the only one she can see
Just can’t seem to make it real

So lonely, here I go again
You know I’m only looking for a friend
Dance to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Feel the heat as she’s holding you tight
Dance to the rhythm of the back beat
Will you dance with somebody tonight

Dance to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Feel the heat as she’s holding you tight
Dance to the rhythm of the back beat
Will you dance with somebody tonight
