Radio XVIII, side A, track 3: “She Wants To Dance With Me” by Rick Astley

Rick Astley - She Wants To Dance With MeOh, Rick Astley, no man has ever been able to better sum up what it feels like that first time when a girl accepts your offer to dance than you did with this song.  And not an acceptance that involves slumped shoulders and a defeated look in her eyes.  I’m talking about a real honest-to-goodness smile.  I’m talking about seeing that little spark of something in her eye, that little something that lets you know she’s actually excited to be dancing with you.  Don’t get me wrong, Rick Astley, that particular moment didn’t happen too often in this humble blogger’s life, but there was one moment in my high school days when from out of nowhere the sparks flew during a slow dance and it led to an all-too-brief romance.  I would love to say that this was the song that we danced to, Rick Astley, but sadly it was not, and I can’t even remember what it was.  What I can tell you was that the song I was singing in my heart during and after that moment was this one.  Well done, Rick Astley.  Well done.

“She Wants To Dance With Me”

She wants to daaaaaaaaaaaaaaance

Ooo, she wants to dance with me

Oh woah yeah (dance with meeee)

Mmmmmmm

There’s a girl
 
I’ve been waitin’ ta see
And I really get the feelin’
That she likes me
‘Cause she said so
But not in so many words
I’ve got ta tell you what I’ve heard

She don’t want no wild romance
When she’s with me she only wants to dance

She wants to dance with me

‘Cause I’ll hold her so tight next to me
She wants to dance with meee

‘Cause I’ll let her be what she wants to be

Now I know

I’ve been out of touch
And I never meant to hurt my baby oh so much
‘Cause I love her
And I think she loves me
And that’s the way it’s got to be

When we’re together we never fight
We’ve got better things to do tonight

She wants to dance with me

‘Cause I’ll hold her so tight next to me
She wants to dance with meee

‘Cause I’ll let her be what she wants to be

She wants ta daaaaaaaaaaaaance

She wants ta daaaaaaaaaaaaance

<awesome Rick Astley jam>

She wants to dance with me

‘Cause I’ll hold her so tight next to me
She wants to dance with meee

‘Cause I’ll let her be what she wants to be

She wants to dance with me

‘Cause I’ll hold her so tight next to me
She wants to dance with meee

‘Cause I’ll let her be what she wants to be

She wants to dance with me

‘Cause I’ll hold her so tight next to me
