About Down on the Street

"Down on the Street" is a 1984 song by British band Shakatak. The song is about the joy of nightlife. It was a big hit, reaching #9 in the UK. It was also their only chart entry on the U. S. Dance Charts, with no further hits there, although their duet with Al Jarreau on "Day by Day" in 1985 was a mild success. Shakatak also reworked the song for the opening titles of 1986 BBC Education series You Are What You Eat. The song has been covered by Norwegian band D'Sound.

An all night dancing party everywhere.

The moonlight falls on this magical sight.
