Dancing in the Street
Dancing in the Street Lyrics: Calling out around the world / Are you ready for a brand new beat / Summer's here / And the time is right / For dancing in the street .and online
Martha Reeves was born in in Eufala, Alabama; her parents later moved to Detroit. As a teenage would-be singer, she joined a group, the Del-Phis, performing in and around the metropolis. His business card in her pocket, she dropped by its HQ on West Grand Boulevard—on the wrong day for an audition. Preoccupied, Stevenson asked Martha to cover the office while he stepped away. The lyrics say just that. LP, where it caught the ear of radio programmers in Boston and Cleveland.
It first became popular in when recorded by Martha and the Vandellas whose version reached No. It is one of Motown 's signature songs and is the group's premier signature song. The original version of "Dancing in the Street" by Martha and the Vandellas was produced in by William "Mickey" Stevenson and released as a single on the Gordy Records label. The song highlighted the concept of having a good time in whatever city the listener lived. The idea for dancing came to Stevenson from watching people on the streets of Detroit cool off in the summer in water from opened fire hydrants.
But there was a problem: getting to Hitsville meant crossing Woodland Avenue, where all the gangs were. Someone could cut you or shoot you. I almost got the bus straight back home. Then I realised that there were 50 people all waiting to see Berry and the business card meant I could go to the front of the queue. Mickey had been up all night trying to finish a song with Marvin Gaye.
