All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
There’ll be swingin’, swayin’ and records playin’
And dancing in the street
Dancing in the Street by David Bowie and Mick Jagger was released on August 12, 1985, with an instrumental version as the B side. It was issued as a single with all profits going to the Live Aid famine relief cause.
The song was a No. 1 hit in several countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. It peaked at No. 7 in the United States.
