There are so many great hits I could have chosen from, given Paul Anka is one of the pioneering giants of Rock and had so many hits. But I wanted to pick one that always delighted me in every way and for this reason I chose "Dance On Little Girl". This was Paul Anka's 23rd single, and his last top 10 hit for ABC-Paramount shortly before he signed with RCA Victor. Although he would have more top 20 hits for RCA, he would not chart in the top 10 again until 1974, when "(You're)Having My Baby" reached #1 for the United Artist Label.

"Dance On Little Girl" reached #10 during the beginning of Summer in 1961. A great song with a captivating melody, with its danceable swaying "cha-cha" beat. It's Anka at his songwriting best, giving us a charming melody with fun lyrics and his trademark impassioned singing.

In late 1961 in the dead of Winter in cold, cold Rome, New York, I came to know a boy named Felipe Vilar, his two older sisters were teenagers then, and they were crazy about Paul Anka. They would play his "21 Golden Hits" album and use us boys as their dancing partners, we had a lot fun prancing around the room on those cold days to Paul's music...and with those memories in mind, I dedicate this video to the Vilar sisters wherever they may be. I never saw Felipe or his sisters after 1962, they moved out West; yet every time I hear one of Paul's early hits, I still fondly think of them. It is through them that I came to appreciate Paul Anka's music and I thank them for that.

Enjoy singing along with this fun song, please see lyrics below:

DANCE ON LITTLE GIRL

Dance dance on little girl
In the arms of someone new
As you dance as you twirl
My heart dances with you

Dance dance on little girl
Tell me what I've done wrong
Why should he hold you tight
While they're playing our song

I am watching you
Oh no no it cannot be
While I'm watching you
I'm wishing, hoping it's for me

Dance dance on little girl
Tell me why did we part
Dance dance on little girl
Dance out of my heart

I am watching you
Oh no no it cannot be
While I'm watching you
I'm wishing, hoping it's for me

Dance dance on little girl
Tell me why did we part
Dance dance on little girl
Dance out of my heart
Oh look at you
There you go go go
Oh yes you know
That you're wrong wrong wrong.....
