Day 09 ~ A song that you can dance to ~ The Mavericks - Dance the Night Away

Finally, finally (and I know you've all been waiting for it) some country music muscles its way into my list.

Q- What do you get if you play country music backwards?
A- You get your wife back, your job back, your house back, your kids back

Which is actually unfair: the great unappreciated tradition about country music is that while it's frequently sad  it's very often also funny, and this song is a good example

A confession: this isn't, in fact a song I can dance to. It's a song I have been known to dance to. Rugby Club parties, 40th birthday parties, 50th birthday parties, in my own kitchen. Sigh, I do recall one particular birthday party many years ago.
