Music Monday

Music Monday: Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. Bjørn and I will pick a song alternatively on each Monday and share our thoughts about them. Timy’s pick this week is Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon.

Thoughts and Ramblings

Today I based my pick on my mood. I’ve not been in the best of moods recently, to begin with, and this Monday is just out of the ordinary weird. No particular reason (well, not any I’d like to get into here anyway), but suffice it to say, it’s just one of those days when I woke up from a dream that left me… I can’t even describe how I’m feeling. Untethered? That’s probably a good one. Anyway. I needed a pick me up and Shut Up and Dance fits the bill nicely. It always makes me want to, well, shut up and dance. Or rather, sing and dance as it may be. It has such good vibes. It also might be that I fell in love with this song watching Darts – it’s Michael Smith’s walk-on song, and that’s always comes with high energies.

Song Lyrics

“Oh, don’t you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me”
I said, “You’re holding back”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me”

We were victims of the night
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and faded light
Oh, we were bound to get together
Bound to get together

She took my arm
I don’t know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

“Oh, don’t you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me”
I said, “You’re holding back”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me!”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me”

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks
My discothèque Juliet, teenage dream
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me
I knew we were bound to be together
Bound to be together

She took my arm
I don’t know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

“Oh, don’t you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me”
I said, “You’re holding back”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me”
Oh, come on, girl

Deep in her eyes
I think I see the future
I realize this is my last chance
She took my arm
I don’t know how it happened
We took the floor and she said

“Oh, don’t you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me”
I said, “You’re holding back”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me”

“Don’t you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me”
I said, “You’re holding back”
She said, “Shut up and dance with me”
This woman is my destiny
She said, “Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me”

Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me
Ooh-hoo
Shut up and dance with me
