A bit of trivia for you. “Do You Want to Dance” is a song written by Bobby Freeman and recorded by him in 1958. Cliff Richard and the Shadows‘ version of the song reached No. 2 in the United Kingdom in 1962, despite being a B-side. It reached No. 8 in the United States when released by the Beach Boys in 1965 as “Do You Wanna Dance?”, and a 1972 cover by Bette Midler (“Do You Want to Dance?”) reached No. 17.
