Josh Turner’s “Why Don’t We Just Dance” to Forget The Troubles 1

Josh Turner is undeniably a devotee or should I say considered as the new era of Honky Tonk. This is because of his deep-toned voice and style of music. Some supporters may deliberate as to which side he should be in; whether pop or traditional. Nevertheless, Turner is a breath of fresh air yet an old soul. This can be realized through his song “Why Don’t We Just Dance.” Also, the song is a proof of his Honky Tonk temperament.

Bit ‘Bout The Song…

“Why Don’t We Just Dance” is a song written by Jim Beavers, Jonathan Singleton, and Darrell Brown. It was released in August 2009 as the lead-off single from Turner’s album “Haywire”. The song became Turner’s third No.1 hit in February 2010. On May 24, 2010, the single was his fourth to be certified Gold by the RIAA.

The Song’s Content…

Furthermore, the song “Why Don’t We Just Dance” is a moderate up-tempo. It also features a production of piano, steel guitar fills, and fiddle.

The song portrays a couple dancing in the living room forgetting each other’s troubles.

The melody caught Turner’s attention as it represents an up-tempo and traditional country song. It has a very catchy tune as well. The lines “why don’t we just dance?” and forgetting the bad stuff going on gave an impact to Turner.

The Lyrics…

Baby, why don’t we just turn that TV off?
Three hundred and fifteen channels of nothing but bad news on,
Well it might be me
But the way I see it,
The whole wide world has gone crazy.
So baby, why don’t we just dance?
Just a little bitty living room ain’t gonna look like much.
But when the lights go down and we move the couch,
It’s gonna be more than enough
For my two left feet
And our two hearts beatin’
Nobody’s gonna see us go crazy.
So baby, why don’t we just dance
Down the hall,
Maybe straight up the stairs?
Bouncing off the wall,
Floating on air,
Baby, why don’t we just dance?
Why don’t you go put your best dress on,
And those high heeled shoes you love to lose
As soon as the tunes come on? On second thought,
Just the way you are, Is already driving me crazy.
So baby, why don’t we just dance
Down the hall, Maybe straight up the stairs?
Bouncing off the wall, Floating on air,
Baby, why don’t we just dance?
I’ll cut a rug, Well it might be me
But the way I see it, The whole wide world has gone crazy.
So baby, why don’t we just dance
(Bouncing off the walls, floating on air)
Oh, baby (baby) why don’t we just dance?

The Music Video…

The music video shows Turner inside a house, observing a couple played by real-life couple Ciaran McCarthy and Ashley Anderson dancing in the living room. Throughout the video, the couple changes clothes and dancing styles showcasing different decades from the 1950s through the present day. According to Country Weekly magazine, Turner was “elated to discover that he wouldn’t have to do any acting” in the video.
