Garth Brooks

The Dance (3:57)

According to the The Dance Songfacts, the inspiration for the song was a scene from the movie Peggy Sue Got Married. Co-writer Tony Arata writes on his website, "Kathleen Turner discovers she can't alter one aspect of her past without affecting the rest. No one gets to pick their memories, thankfully."

  • My face is all puffy and keyboard is soaked. Thanks a lot, Garth.
  • My favorite Garth song....all the world was definitely right. But oh well.
  • None of these Garth Brooks videos on this site are actually him. They are all amateur covers. I know this isn't the fault of those who posted it, because it is essentially impossible to post actual Garth Brooks videos online, because of the artist's well known fanaticism about keeping his content from the digital world. But people should at least know what they're listening to.
  • Looking back....that's a long road. Love it.
  • music that means so much, like this wonderful song, will never get old. great song, great job recording this timeless classic.
  • great song
  • my favorite Garth song.
  • People think of their ex's like they are the plague! This song reminds me that my ex was part of my life. We had children so if I missed this dance they would not be here, and I am forever grateful for that!
  • I miss you :'(
  • Awesome.
