Radio XVII, side B, track 4: “Dancing Under A Latin Moon” by Candi

Candi - Dancing Under A Latin MoonOh, Candi, it’s been years since I’ve heard this song, but I love it just as much as I did the first time I heard it.  This is the kind of song that you’d find during some musical montage in one of those cheesy romantic comedies I adored as a young’un (and let’s face it, I still enjoy those same cheesy romantic comedies).  And we’re not talking the cheesy romantic comedies that can afford to have a big-name fun pop song in the soundtrack like, say, “Can’t Buy Me Love” (oh, how I still love you “Can’t Buy Me Love”).  We’re talking a much smaller budget-type romantic comedy, like maybe “Loverboy”, which still had Patrick Dempsey but not as much street cred.  Or “The Shrimp On The Barbie”.  Or “My Demon Lover”.  What’s that you say, Candi?  That you’ve never heard of any of those movies?  Oh, they exist, Candi, because I’ve watched them and adored them multiple times.  And I guarantee that if your song wasn’t on one of those soundtracks, it’s very likely that there was a song that sounded pretty damn close.  And that’s just fine.

“Dancing Under A Latin Moon”

I’ve been here too long
Feeling my own will

There’s a big world out there
Wanna know how it feeeeels

South American
Californian

Ooo, the rhythm of the streeeet

I’m gonna catch his eye
Under Brazilian sky
Body and soul will meet

We will be lovers
Imagine

Dancing under a Latin moon

We will be lovers
Imagine

Dancing under a Latin mooooon

I’m gonna be there soon
Under a Latin moooooon

New York winter streets
Your dream is real

Dream boy’s far from here
Wanna know how it feeeels

Wanna sweep the town
See the sights and sounds
In the tropical night heeeeat

Fire lights the sky
As I obey my eyes
Body and soul will meet

We will be lovers
Imagine

Dancing under a Latin moon

We will be lovers
Imagine

Dancing under a Latin mooooon

I’m gonna be there soon
Under a Latin moooooon wooooaohhhhhh
