General Information

I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) is the first single from Whitney Houston's second studio album, Whitney, released in 1987. Evanescence covered the song acoustically on the thirtieth anniversary of the song's release on May 2, 2017 at their show in Argentina.

Amy posted a short clip of the performance on Evanescence's Instagram and mentioned how Whitney inspired her when she was younger:

Vin1.jpg Somebody told me that "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" came out 30 years ago today, and I had to throw it into the set. #whitneyhouston inspired me tremendously when I was a young girl, and her tragedy is something that deeply affected me. I loved her. I think about the lyrics to this song and how alone she might have actually felt deep down, and it breaks my heart. We felt so much love in this room in Buenos Aires tonight, my favorite show on the tour so far. It is truly amazing what music can do. We are one. ❤️ (sorry for the washy stage audio. I promise I'll record it someday) -love, Amy

(Ps thank you @jen_majura AND @ttmccord for recording it, the fact that you both were makes me tear up a little!)😘😘😘[1]

Lyrics

Evanescence Version

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
I've been alright up to now
It's the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls, my loneliness calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel something, somebody
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
