Leo Sayers "You Make Me Fell Like Dancing"

ABBA's lesser known I'm A Marionette could also refer to a dancer

Aretha Franklin - "Rock Steady" < This song is sonic caffeine!

Patti Smith - "Land: Horses / Land of a Thousand Dances / La Mer (de)" - The middle section interpolates a pastiche of the Wilson Pickett dance classic, which itself folds in earlier dance songs.

Bob Marley - "Jump Nyabinghi" - Its rhythm is as delicate and lively as a water strider.

Songs about dancers, OK.

Petra Berger - "The Girl Looking Into Me" - a song about Berger's countrywoman Mata Hari, set to the tune of the "Gliding Dance of the Maidens" from the Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor by Borodin. (Classical crossover)

Ballad of Cleo & Joe
Quote:
And he works his body just to be somebody.
There's a woman in the mirror looking like a dream.
And he works his body just to feel somebody
And the working boy becomes a dancing queen.
--Cyndi Lauper

My contribution: "Dancing Shoes" by Dan Fogelberg

This is the song that turned me on to him as a singer in 1977.
