Music for Monday: Van Halen, ‘Dance the Night Away’

“Won’t’cha turn your head my way?”
Van Halen, “Dance the Night Away,” 1979

Happy Labor Day to those of you in the US! And to everyone, Happy Monday! What do we do when we have the day off? We “Dance the Night Away” of course.

Van Halen released “Dance the Night Away” in 1979 and it became their first US top 20 hit – rising to #15 on the Billboard “Hot 100”. Enjoy this concert-footage video of the band in their classic late-70s period. It’s hairy good.
