I'm looking for a 1978-1979 disco song where the lyrics went "Keep on, keep on, keep on dancing". I believe it was on a compilation cassette in 1978 where one of the last songs was Exile's "Kiss you all over", but I'm not sure about the last. Can you help me?

    Isn't that lyric in every disco song from the 70s? – Chris Sunami supports Monica Oct 26 '17 at 14:12

I believe it’s Boney M's Dancing in the Streets (the “keep on, keep on” bit starts at 2:48).


I think it very well could be "Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)", by Chic, which appeared on a few compilations with Exile's "Kiss You All Over" in 1978 - 1979, one of which was Action Replay, where "Kiss You All Over" was 3rd to last song, but the compilation was on vinyl.


How about The Bay City Rollers - Keep On Dancin'?



I believe the song you are looking for is Gary's Gang - Keep on Dancin'. It topped out on the Billboard at no. 41 in 1978.


It could also be I Gotta Keep Dancing by Carrie Lucas in 1977 on the album Simply Carrie.

The lyrics have several times:

Keep on dancing Do do do, yeah, yeah, yeah

I gotta keep dancing (keep dancing)
Smiling (keep smiling)
To keep from breaking apart
I gotta keep dancing (keep dancing)
Smiling (keep smiling)
To cover up my broken heart


It's Chic - Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah! Yowsah! Yowsah!)from the 70's disco era of music.

I have the original and extended version in my crates.
