“Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh, oh, oh. I’ve never seen anybody do the things you do before.” If you quietly read it instead of singing it inside your head, you never heard of this famous electro-pop single by the Australian singer Tones and I. This lively song actually has a personal meaning to Tones. “I wrote this song when I was busking, and about the pressure that I felt to always be entertaining people on the street. And if they didn’t like it, when they looked at their phones they could just click something else; … we are all so used to being entertained at the click of a button.”, she said. “So when you’re busking on the street, .. to command your attention, people would be like: ‘again! again!’.. ‘more! more!’.. or they would just leave. So if you replace the lyric: ‘dance for me, dance for me’ with ‘sing for me, sing for me,’ it’s pretty literal,” the singer explains.
The journey of busking is what the singer of the song and the famous street saxophone player Daniele Vitale have in common. This explains why Daniele chose to perform this song in one of his busking gigs. In his viral video that already garnered more than 86 million views, Daniele serenaded the locals and tourists who were quietly sightseeing in one of the famous streets in Naples.
The people who only expected to have a glimpse of the lovely street’s beauty were clearly surprised when Daniele hit his first note perfectly. Many stopped on their tracks to witness the incredible performance of the talented saxophone player.
