Notes:
"Let's Dance" is a 1962 hit-single written and produced by Jim Lee. It went to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the U.S., and to #2 in the UK Singles Chart. In 1973 it was coupled as an "oldie" with The Shirelles "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and released in Europe where it was a huge hit the first time in 1962. Based on radio play demand for Let's Dance" the record company, London Records, quickly removed The Shirelles cut replacing it with the original flip side "You're The One". The recording went on to reach the top five for a second time, then 11 years later, in both England and Germany.

This tune was also featured in the 1978 comedy film, National Lampoon's Animal House.
