about

The second song of the album, “In Your Dancing Dreams” is also a mashup of styles. This time, one hears bits of “Hawaii Five–O,” “Stayin’ Alive” and Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” set to the chords of Quincy Jones’ “There’s a Train Leaving” (with a bonus reference to the theme from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”). The song, written by Kelly Maxwell and John Feith, is an ode to a fan who after working all week dresses up to go dancing at a VO5 show. Maxwell was thinking of a particular friend (in this case walking to the Madison’s neighborly Crystal Corner Bar) who often dances alone in an ecstatic, spaced–out state yet is always among friends. Halfway through, the song shifts into a straight disco ditty with a melody first heard in the intro horn overture. It then becomes a celebratory instrumental in the style of Diana Ross’ “Love Hangover” with a finish that includes an ode to guitarist John McLaughlin’s tone playing the intro to J. Geils Band “Centerfold,” and ending with a dreamy harp and a fancy Ebmaj7#11 chord.

lyrics

2. I N Y O U R D A N C I N G D R E A M S
Working for the weekend— I just got to move
Feel that funk a creeping— I just got to move
Shake it down, I know I’m lookin’ good now
I just got to move
Step into the place— I just got to move
Bodies interlace— I just got to move
With the Rhythm and the Bass, I’m feelin’ good now
I just got to move
It’s midnight and I’m still dancin’
Bar time and I’m still dancin’
Taxi ride and I’m still dancin’
Maybe I'll be dancing in your dreams…
Mind's in outer space—I just got to move
Bodies interlace— I just got to move
With the Rhythm and the Bass, I’m feelin’ good now
I just got to move
I’ll be dancin’ in my dreams tonight
I’ll be groovin’ to that funky disco beat—
Tossin’ and turnin’ in my sleep tonight
I’ll be dreaming of the night
I felt the music lifting me higher
