    I wouldn't call Dance the Night Away a ballad, but that's

    I'd say Love Walks In.

    I dunno....I would call it a ballad. And that's no putdown on my part of the song... I think it fits the ballad criteria:

    It's a song involving love and a woman....and it is a slower temp and has a sweetness about it. It certainly isn't Hard Rocking....

    FROM WEBSTERS:

    Ballad (balēlad)

    Pronunciation: (bal'ud), [key]
    ón.
    1. any light, simple song, esp. one of sentimental or romantic character, having two or more stanzas all sung to the same melody.
    2. a simple narrative poem of folk origin, composed in short stanzas and adapted for singing.
    3. any poem written in similar style.
    4. the music for a ballad.
    5. a sentimental or romantic popular song.

    I'd say Dance The Night Away is a ballad folks!


    And again that's not a put down of the tune.....It may not fit the "Ballad Sound" that was so popular in the 1980's "HairBand" era....BUT nevertheless, I'd call it a ballad.

    Yeah---I shoulda picked "Dirty Movies" as my fav ballad Eyes---LOL...

    Anytime someone pulls out Websters (the book, not the TV character) to make an arguement, props must be given.
