Random Song of the Day - Bryan Adams - She's Only Happy When She's Dancing

Oh my, Bryan Adams! He was my introduction to rock. I bought his "Reckless" album and played that shit into the ground. My cassette was so worn out that by the time I played the very last minutes of it, the songs were cutting off here and there due to the tape being so beaten down.

She's Only Happy When She's Dancing is a fun tune to sing along and dance to. I've always loved that song and just plain cannot resist moving around to it.

From the Reckless album, circa 1984:

Monday mornin' - it's time to get up
Two cups of coffee and she runs for the bus
Looks in the window and fixes her hair
Nobody notices and nobody cares

She admits it ain't no kinda life
Workin' 9 to 5 you know...


She's only happy when she's dancin'
There ain't no place she'd rather be
When she's dancin'
Just her heart and her soul and her fantasies

When Friday evenin' finally rolls around
She grabs a taxi and she heads uptown
Goes to a place they call "The Ball And Chain"
Nothin' matters until Monday so she goes insane

Well its a bitch tryin' to make ends meet
But that's the way the story goes


She's only happy when she's dancin'
There ain't nothin' makes her feel so free
When she's dancin'
The girl's outrageous and it's plain to see


She ain't got much but she got independence
Ya - she's doin' alright
His eyes are on her as the evenin's endin'
But she ain't goin' for no mystery
Because nobody rides for free
