Words We Can Dance To

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Newsom
A typical Steve Goodman mix of eclectic stylings and clever wordplay, Words We Can Dance To roams far and wide. The music ranges from a cover of the rock & roll classic "Tossin' and Turnin'" to the Western swing of "Between the Lines," and from the country shuffle of "Death of a Salesman" to the solo acoustic blues guitar pickin' on the standard "The Glory of Love." Within this broad musical spectrum, Goodman delivers his original lyrics, both humorous and heartfelt.

"Banana Republics" became a staple of Jimmy Buffett's repertoire after its inclusion on Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.
