From the wiki: “‘Do You Want to Dance’ is a song written by Bobby Freeman and recorded by him in 1958. Cliff Richard and The Shadows’ version of the song reached #2 in the United Kingdom in 1962, despite being a B-side. It reached #8 in the United States when released by the Beach Boys in 1965 as ‘Do You Wanna Dance?’, and a 1972 cover by Bette Midler (‘Do You Want to Dance?’) reached #17.
“In contrast to the Bobby Freeman, Cliff Richard, and Beach Boys versions, which are uptempo Rock ‘n roll songs, Midler slowed the tempo of the song down to a sultry-sounding ballad. It was Midler’s first single release, and her first Top 20 hit.”
