"Dance Hall Days" as written by and Nicholas Feldman Jack Hues....
Take your baby by the hand
And make her do a high handstand
And take your baby by the heel
And do the next thing that you feel

We were so in vies
In our dance hall days
We were cool on cries
When all you and everyone we knew
Could believe, do, and share in what was true

Dance hall days love !

Take your baby by the hair
And pull her close and there, there, there
And take your baby by the ears
And play upon her darkest fears

We were so in vies
In our dance hall days
We were cool on cries
When all you and everyone we knew
Could believe, do, and share in what was true

Dance hall days love
Dance hall days
Dance hall days love

Take your baby by the wrist
And in her mouth an amethyst
And in her eyes two sapphires blue
And you need her and she needs you
And you need her and she needs you
And you need her and she needs you
And you need her and she needs you
And you need her and she needs you

We were so in vies
In our dance hall days
We were cool on cries
When all you and everyone we knew
Could believe, do, and share in what was true

Dance hall days love
Dance hall days love
Dance hall days
Dance hall days love
Dance hall days
Dance hall days love
Dance hall days
Dance hall days love

    General CommentI honestly don't know anything about this band. I don't usually listen to this type of music, but the other day i saw this video on tv. Then a few days later I heard it on one of those music channels where they dont play videos they just play songs. The video is really 80's, i like it and got the song. Its very catchy, addictive, and nostalgic to the 80's in general. Do they really only have 3 songs? Does anyone know anything about them?

    General CommentFor some reason, to me it sounds like an abusive boyfriend likening a fight with his girlfriend nostalgically to when they used to go out dancing.

    That's probably not right, but at first it sounds like they're dancing, but in the second verse it sounds like their fighting because of "take your baby by the hair" and "take her by the ears."

    Or maybe it's rough sex.

    General Commentthis is just a great bit of 80s pop nostalgia. a great little song... can't explain why i like it so much, but that synth melody and the chorus almost take me away to the dance hall days... which i am way too young to have any personal knowledge of.

    Song MeaningThis song seems like it's about my favorite book of all time, Lolita by Vladimir Nabakov. It's a book about a man who enters into a horrible and hypnotizing relationship with a 12 year old girl. It's the most mesmerizing prose I've ever read. However, all the lyrics seem to point to this. Humbert loves her childish nature, hence the hand stand. He mentions her "monkey feet" numerous times. The "pull her close and there there there" line matches up with Humbert using her sorrow at her mother's death to comfort/seduce little Lolita. In order to keep Lolita from running away or talking to someone on their endless road trip across America, Humbert Humbert "plays upon her darkest fears". I could go a bit deeper, but I think I made my point.
