L is for...

Let the music play


"Let the Music Play"
is a Latin freestyle song recorded by Shannon in 1983.

The original version of the record was
produced by Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa.
By the early 1980s, the backlash against disco
had driven dance music off mainstream radio stations in the US.
The rhythmic ingenuity of "Let the Music Play,"
with its drum-machine pattern
produced by a filtered Roland TR-808,
allowed it to hit #8 on the US Singles Chart
and #1 on the US Dance chart in November 1983,
ushering in the dance-pop era.

"Let the Music Play"
was Shannon's only US Top 40.
It was ranked 43rd
on the 2009 VH1 Special 100
Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 1980s.
