  • Lyrics
  • We started dancing and love put us into a groove
    As soon as we started to move.
    The music played while our bodies displayed through the dance,
    Then love picked us out for romance.
    I thought it was clear the plan was we would share,
    This feeling just between ourselves.
    But when the music changed, the plan was re-arranged
    He went to dance with someone else.

    We started dancing and love put us into a groove
    But now he's with somebody new - what does love want me to do?
    Love said:

    Let the music play he won't get away,
    Just keep the groove and then he'll come back to you again, let it play.
    Let the music play he won't get away,
    This groove he can't ignore, he won't leave you anymore, no, no, no.

    He tried pretending a dance is just a dance, but I see
    He's dancing his way back to me.
    Guess he's discovered we are truly lovers,
    Magic from the very start, 'cause love just kept me groovin',
    And he felt me movin' even though we danced apart.
    So we started dancing and love put us into the groove
    As soon as we started to move, as soon as we started to move.
    Love said:

    Let the music play he won't get away,
    He tried pretending a dance is just a dance, but I see
    He's dancing his way back to me,
    He's dancing his way back to me.
    Love said:
    Let the music play he won't get away,
    Let the music play he won't get away,Writer/s: CHRIS BARBOSA, ED. CHISOLM

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn this day in 1984 {April 21st} Shannon performed "Let The Music Play" on Dick Clark's ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
    Two months earlier on February 19th, 1984 the song peaked at position #8 on Billboard's Top 100 chart...
    And on January 29th, 1984 it reached #2 {for 2 weeks} on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, and the two weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for both those weeks was "If Only You Knew" by Patty LaBelle...
    And on the same 'Bandstand' show she also performed "Give Me Tonight", at the time it was at #17 on the Hot R&B Singles chart, three weeks later it would peak at #6 {for 2 weeks} and on April 29th it reached #46 {for 2 weeks} on the Top 100...
    Besides the above two records, the Washington, DC native had five other records on the Hot R&B Singles chart; "My Heart's Divided" {#48 in 1984}, "Do You Wanna Get Away" {#13 in 1985}, "Stronger Together" {#26 in 1985}, "Urgent" {#68 in 1985}, and "Prove Me Right" {#82 in 1986}...
