Split Enz

Split Enz were one of the most successful New Zealand musical acts of the 1980s. Formed in the early 1970s and variously featuring Phil Judd and brothers Tim Finn and Neil Finn, the band would go on to achieve chart success in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada ‒ most notably with their 1980 single "I Got You" - and build a cult following elsewhere. Their musical style was eclectic, incorporating influences from art rock, vaudeville, swing, punk, rock, new wave, and pop. Split Enz established a reputation for a highly distinctive visual style, thanks partly to their colourful, offbeat costumes and hairstyles. more »

I don't want to dance no more
Not since you walked out the door
Left without a second glance
That's the end of my romance
No more fancy footwork in the nightclub
I'm a still point in a turning world

I don't want to dance tonight
I can hardly stand the sight
Of lovers moving on the floor
There's a memory I can't ignore
Of listening to the D.J. play the record
Take your partner and move around
And I'm dancing in my baby's arms again

I don't want to dance
Not without my baby
I don't want to dance
Not without my baby
I don't want to dance

Every night it's always there
The memory of our sad affair
I'm underneath the coloured lights
You're asking me am I alright
I can only answer "I'm the dancer"
Whose sense of rhythm is paralyzed
Til I'm dancing in my baby's arms again

I don't want to dance
Not without my baby
I don't want to dance
Not without my sweetheart
I don't want to dance, not tonight
