Who doesn’t remember tearing up the dance floor to this tune?

Let The Music Play” is a freestyle dance song recorded by Shannon in 1983. In November 1983, “Let the Music Play” was the first of Shannon’s four #1s on the US Dance chart.  The song also peaked at #2 on the soul chart and #8 on the US Singles Chart in February 1984.

Some mark this as the beginning of the dance-pop era. “Let the Music Play” was Shannon’s only US Top 40 hit. It was ranked 43rd on the 2009 VH1 Special 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 1980s. 

We think it still sounds as good today as it did back then….what about you?
