Story Behind the Song

We were recording the piano for "I Love Christmas" at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver when I came up with the chord progression for "Gonna Dance." At the time it was a much slower song and when I brought it to the table during a writing session with Don and Aileen, it was a sad song. We really hit a brick wall, but when I suggested we try it as an up-tempo song it really took on a life of it's own. It just felt right as this happy, up-tempo tune. It's a song that makes you want to dance!

Lyrics

GONNA DANCE
Don McLeod, Ali Milner, Aileen De La Cruz

D-Bm-G-D/A
I LIKE THIS SONG IT MAKES ME SMILE
IT'S BEEN ON REPEAT FOR A WHILE
NO MATTER WHAT MY MOOD MAY BE
YOU'LL ALWAYS CATCH ME DANCING

I'M WALKING WITH THE BASS LINE
I'VE MEMORIZED EVERY SINGLE RHYME
TURN THE DIAL UP ON THIS THING
SO I CAN HEAR THE CHOIR SING

(CHORUS) D-Bm-G-D/A
BABY, BABY, BABY SWEET BABY
I'M GONNA DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE TILL MY LEGS GIVE AWAY

CALL YOUR FRIENDS LETS GET TOGETHER NOW
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM WE'LL TURN THIS PARTY OUT
EVERYBODIES HAVING SO MUCH FUN
GONNA TWIST UNTILL THE MORNING COMES

SNAP YOUR FINGER TIPS, BOB YOUR HEAD A BIT
LET THE BEAT RUN THROUGH AND SWAY YOUR HIPS
GETTING IN THE GROOVE, GIVE IT ATTITUDE
NEXT THING YOU KNOW I'M SWINGING RIGHT ACROSS THE ROOM

(SOLO) over last half of chorus

(CHORUS)
BABY, BABY, BABY SWEET BABY
I'M GONNA DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE TILL MY LEGS GIVE AWAY

(BRIDGE) A-Bm-A-Bm-A-Bm-C
THROW THE BLINDS OPEN, LET THE BREEZE BLOW IN
SWEEP MY TROUBLES AWAY

(CHORUS) repeat to fade
I'M GONNA DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE TILL MY LEGS GIVE AWAY
(OVERLAP)
SNAP YOUR FINGER TIPS, BOB YOUR HEAD A BIT
LET THE BEAT RUN THROUGH AND SWAY YOUR HIPS
GETTING IN THE GROOVE, GIVE IT ATTITUDE
NEXT THING YOU KNOW I'M SWINGING RIGHT ACROSS THE ROOM
