Liner Notes: 

Woke early this morning (3.46am) after just 2.25 hours sleep pfft, and this is what sprung out when I sat down at my desk !

I had actually sat down to write a fantasy epic folk song... not sure what happened in that weird imagination of mine Wink

Collabs welcome (thoughts on collabs on my profile page).

Corey says: Phew! I finally put this song up (my apologies to Amanda for the delay). Needs probably a little more tweaking but it's still something that you can shake your butt to Smile

Lyrics: 

I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches

Inside outside upside down
A sure fire way to not be down
Skin tight drip dried all night gown
Fire em up in this hick town

I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches
I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches

Crab like bird like bat like now
A wriggle jig then take a bow
Left right late night boogie down
Live it up out on the town

I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches
I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches

And when the temp cools down
An' we all sit around
There's a feeling in the air
We no longer even care
Cus' the rhythm of the night
Washes out the mess we made
Shedding off our cool despair
As we dance until it's late

I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches
I'm gonna dance 'till I smile
Just as long as it takes
Dance 'till I'm warm inside
An' my body aches

That is just so catchy: I'm gonna dance till I smile. It's winter here- so your song will keep everybody warm and smiling

I love the time difference between the verses and chorus. This is so catchy and hooky that you have to move to it. Listened twice, nice work.

Waking up that early after that little sleep, and cranking out such energetic lyrics?
Love that lol
This music is such a fit, and sounds so friggin good.
Every single thing that every single instrument is doing, I dig. LOVE the guitar solo and the elec pianos especially.
Great vocal melodies for this - has the catchiness that justifies a sing-along hit.
Yeah, this is top-notch prime-time stuff.
I don't shake my butt, but if I did, I'd be doing it to this.
