I see myself driving a 50′s chevvy convertible in front of a green screen projection of the Californian coast road when I listen to this tune. 'Dance on!' moves in a languid, carefree, easy to watch rom-com, swim if you wanna type way. Background music of the surf-rock inclination–them be fighting words to a lot of musicians.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Shadows have released some great records and are innovators in many repsects, however, this ain't one of their high points. In fact, it's more of a moot point with an overall affable aesthetic.
