Let's Dance is a 1987 single by British singer-songwriter Chris Rea. The song first appeared in an early form as a b-side to the "It's All Gone" single in 1986 and was then re-recorded for his 1987 album Dancing with Strangers. It reached a peak of #12 in the UK Singles Chart, remaining in the chart for 10 weeks.[1] In 1988 it was re-ecorded again for the New Light Through Old Windows album and this version is the most well known. Another version of the song was re-released with new lyrics in 1997 by Middlesbrough F.C., Rea's hometown football club, with the new lyrics provided by comedian Bob Mortimer.[2]
