Music Monday - "Dance Away" by Roxy Music (1979)

I love this song. I've loved it since first listen in my teen years, and still feel a little thrill when I hear it on the radio. 

"Dance Away" was a hit for Roxy Music in 1979. It was written by Bryan Ferry and released on the band's Manifesto album.  It was a big hit, and is one of Roxy Music's signature songs.   I always like the lyrics, about a man who dances away his heartache after his girlfriend leaves him for another man:  

"You're dressed to kill and guess who's dying'
Dance away the heartache
Dance away the tears
- Dance away"

Do you remember this song?  Any other Roxy Music songs you remember and like?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.

I don't know this song - is that bad?? But I love these lyrics; it's a good song. I love listening to lyrics and finding the meaning in songs.
