"Dance, Dance, Dance" is a song composed by Brian and Carl Wilson with lyrics by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for the Americanrock band the Beach Boys. It was first released as a single in 1964 backed with "The Warmth of the Sun" and was released the following year as the sixth track on the Beach Boys' eighth studio album, The Beach Boys Today! "Dance, Dance, Dance" marks Carl Wilson's first recognised writing contribution to a Beach Boys single, his contribution being the song's primary guitar riff and solo.
The single peaked at number eight in the US and number 24 in the UK It was also number seven on Canada's national RPM chart, number six in Sweden, and in France was their fourth song to place on the Jukebox chart.
Across the States, the single tended to be held out of the top five of regional playlists by a log-jam of British Invasion acts, and burst through to number one only in Washington DC (WKMC), San Jose and Providence. It was number three in San Diego, and number four in San Francisco, Dallas, Hartford, the Albany Tri-Cities and Newark.
The song has been played many times over the years, sometimes in a medley format with "Do You Wanna Dance?", another Beach Boys song from the Today! album. Despite being a live staple in Beach Boys setlists throughout the 2000s during the 50th Anniversary Tour the song was played only 11 times and in its original structure.
