    Recorded the other night at Elmer’s open mic. I used to do this song double time like an Elvis song. Decided to try it straight. Messed up a few words… meh. Got some tambourine help from the audience.

    This is a cover of Genesis’ 1991 song “I Can’t Dance” which appears on “We Can’t Dance”. Check out the original and buy it!  Words and music by Michael Rutherford/Anthony Banks/Philip Collins.
