What I do remember:
- This song includes a chorus that includes words something along the lines of "dancing by moonlight" or "dancing in the light of the moon" or "dancing by the light of the moon", and may also include the words, "We tripped the light fantastic."
- The lead singer is a female with a light, clear voice (something like Christine McVie's of Fleetwood Mac, though I don't think she's the singer) and back-up singers who are probably female as well.
- It's uptempo.
- I'm pretty sure it would date from the late eighties or early nineties.
- I know it exists because I heard it a few months ago on the radio. I was very sleepy and I listened just long enough to catch several definite phrases for Googling the next day, except when I woke up the next morning I'd forgotten them.
Well musical mavens of MeFi, have at it.
