Paul McCartney Dance Tonight

Paul McCartney has released ‘Dance Tonight’, the first music video from his album, Memory Almost Full. A postal worker, played by Mackenzie Crook (known for The Office and Pirates of the Caribbean), drives up to Paul McCartney’s home with a parcel. He invites himself in for a cup of tea. McCartney says he’s ordered a cricket bat but discovers the box holds a stringed instrument. It’s not a banjo, it’s a mandolin.

McCartney puts the mandolin through its paces, singing his single, “Dance Tonight”. As he sings a ghost (played by Natalie Portman) emerges from the packing box and sits in his seat to listen. McCartney wanders through the home, calling out more ghostly guests for his party. The postman finally decides this is all too much and heads off in the van. The video finishes with Paul making the switch and joining Natalie’s ghost figure, returning through the box to play bass at a party in the underworld.

Lyrics for Dance Tonight

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Everybody gonna dance around
Everybody gonna hit the ground
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do

Everybody gonna stamp their feet
Everybody’s gonna feel the beat
Everybody wanna dance around tonight

(Bridge)

Everybody’s gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Everybody gonna jump and shout
Everybody gonna sing it out
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight
Everybody gonna dance around tonight
Everybody’s gonna feel alright tonight
