“You make me want to dance to the music,” sings Robert Finley, and it’s pretty hard not to sympathize. “You Make Me Want to Dance” is a slab of dirty, sexy soul, gyrating around a firm funk backbeat in much the same way as most pairs of hips exposed to this song might. Finley’s Southern croon soars above sensual guitar and horns, reveling in the freedom the music provides and exploring the crannies of the instrumentation. If you need something to get you moving this Monday, this should be the ticket.
“It’s like when you’re at the club and you see a pretty lady just sitting there. I wanna dance with her, and I wanna see her dancing,” says Finley. “Women look a whole lot better when they’re moving than when they’re standing still!”
