THE BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
To compliment my recently completed ‘1000 BEST SONGS LIST,’ here is another that just missed the cut.
1034-The Nolan Sisters-I’m In the Mood For Dancing.
1980-Number 3 single.
Best Bit-At 2.31.In 2009 for their comeback single for some inexplicable reason The Nolans’ recorded a cover of The Smiths classic ‘Panic.’I can only think of one worse recording,and that would be The Smiths doing a cover version of ‘I’m In the Mood For Dancing.’
Ireland’s ‘First Family of Music,’ as they are known originally started performing together in 1963,the original lineup was father Tommy (1925-1998,) mother Maureen (1926-2007,) their sons Tommy, and Brian,and daughters, Anne,Denise,Maureen,Linda, and Bernadette (1960-2013,) the youngest member Coleen joined in 1980, when Denise had left the group, which now just consisted of the family’s daughters.
‘I’m In the Mood For Dancing’ has become the The Nolans’ signature tune, reaching the top ten in Ireland,The Netherlands,and the UK,it also went to Number 1 in New Zealand, and South Africa,but the songs greatest success is in Japan, where it is the ninth best selling English language record of all time, with sales approaching one million copies.
‘Ooh from head to my toe, take me again, and heaven who knows, just where it will end.’
