About Dancing in the Sheets

"Dancing in the Sheets" is a song written by Bill Wolfer and Dean Pitchford and recorded by American R&B group Shalamar. It was featured on the chart-topping soundtrack album of the 1984 motion picture Footloose and was also the first single from their album Heartbreak, featuring the new line-up of Howard Hewett, Delisa Davis and Micki Free. The synth melody on the song is similar in structure to Prince's "1999". A music video was made featuring the new line-up and did not feature any footage from the film. "Dancing in the Sheets" was a top 20 hit on the Billboard charts, peaking at No. 17 on the Hot 100 and reaching No. 18 on the Hot Black singles chart. On the UK Singles Chart, the song climbed to No. 41. An extended 12" version of the song was made available as one of four bonus tracks on the 15th Anniversary Collectors' Edition re-release of the soundtrack in 1998.

I caught you smiling
I know I've seen you here before
How come you're hiding?
Hey don't you want to hit the floor?
The place is crowded
Or maybe you don't like the beat
I got a two-track playing in my head
So let me take you somewhere else instead
Dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets

Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
I want to take you where the night never ends
I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets

We feel the rhythm
We've got the music on our side
If we go with 'em
I'll bet we'll have a wonderful ride
Your hands are cold
So maybe we could make some heat
Love is always born on a chance
So wrap around me and baby let's dance
Dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets

Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
I want to take you where the night never ends
I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets

Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
I want to take you where the night never ends
I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets
Dancing in the sheets
