Morning Song – You Make Me Feel Like Dancing
Yes, it’s true: there was an astonishing—and unfortunate—explosion of white three-piece suits in the late 1970s. (Baby boomers can just shut up forever about current fashion trends.) And it wasn’t just The Bee Gees making hit records with falsetto vocals; “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing” is one of 7 consecutive Top Ten singles for British native Leo Sayer from that era.
Here’s the thing about “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing”: it delivers on the promise of its title. True, it takes until the 2nd bridge, but when it does arrive (at 2:01) and the drummers start flying all over their kits, the bassist digs into the groove, the guitar player doubles down on on the scratching rhythm, and the backup singers elevate into wordless ecstasy, you really do want to “dance the night away“…even, or perhaps especially if it’s 9:00 am.
