From the bop to the twist to 70’s disco and the dance pop of the 80’s and 90’s, joyous, energetic “dance songs” inspire and urge us to let go, get loose, to dance…
You can hear that “magical sensation” in 1992’s international hit and dance sensation “Rhythm Is A Dancer” by Snap! and you can also hear it in Sam Smith’s multi-format hit, “Diamonds,” the first single from their* newest album (it drops on Friday), a collection of songs that they’ve* been writing for the past two years.
“Diamonds” projects a feeling of “no guilt, no shame”–just the love of singing and creating and dancing.
Currently, it’s charting #14 on Adult Top 40, #18/Top 40 and #25 Adult Contemporary.
