Party time! 😀

Back in my clubs days…last century…this was a song that would pack the dance floor. It wasn’t time to look cute or cool when Midnight Star’s No Parking on the Dance Floor was played.  It was time to dance!

The title track from the group’s fourth and most successful album of the same name in 1983,  the song reached number 43 on the R&B chart, number 44 on the dance chart, and number 81 on the Billboard Hot 100.

FUN FACT:

  • The song has been sampled by several artists since its 1983 release, including Sugar Ray’s song from 2003, Mr. Bartender (It’s So Easy). The basic melody was sampled by the Bar-Kays in their 1984 hit Freakshow on the Dance Floor.

It’s a fun video, very 80s with lots of Jheri curls, shoulder pads, and leather!

Enjoy!
