Artiestinformatie


Begonnen als de Jackson Five in 1969 onder het Motown verhuisde de broers in 1976 naar het Epic label en Jermaine bleef achter bij Motown. Nu heette het viertal The Jacksons en scoorde Michael, Marlon, Randy en Tito grote hits met Shake Your Body, Blame It On The Boogie en Torture. Can You Feel It uit 1981 was hun grootste hit en kwam tot nummer 2 in de Nederlandse Top 40. In 1989 scoorde The Jacksons hun laatste hit met Nothin' (That Compares 2 U). Michael maakte toen geen deel meer uit. Sinds Michael's overlijden in 2009 treden de broers soms nog op.

Songtekst

I don't know what's going happen to you, baby
But I do know that I love ya
You walk around this town
With your head all up in the sky
And I do know that I want ya

Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground

You tease me with your lovin'
To play hard to get
Cause you do know that I want ya
You walk around this town
With your head all up in the sky
And you do know that I want ya

Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground

You are the spark that lit
The fire inside of me
And you know that I love it
I need to do just something
To get closer to your soul
And you do know that I want ya

Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
Let's dance, let's shout (shout)
Shake you body down to the ground
