I Wanna Dance With Somebody // Whitney Houston (cover)

Here's a cover for your Wednesday/Thursday (Hi, America!). Now, if you're expecting the jazzy, hip-shaking tempo of Whitney Houston...



...prepare yourself. This will be different.


I would like to dedicate this song to Michael Steingas and Kylie Schnell who "inspired" me to do this cover on my birthday three years ago as we squeezed into one, too-small chair and shoulder-danced and sang our little hearts out.







I Wanna Dance With Somebody
by Whitney Houston

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
I've done alright up to now
It's the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls, loneliness calls


[Chorus]
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me


I've been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later, the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need a man who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls


[Chorus]
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me





But seriously, let's all take a moment and watch the Queen do it. Jeremy and I got quite a few chuckles out of watching this over breakfast this morning. Oh, how show biz has changed...
