Minus One recently won the wiwibloggs readers’ poll for favourite duo/group, and now the Cypriot band are delivering more of the rock sound that fans love. Despite the unusual name, the group’s new single “Potato Song (I Just Wanna Dance)” is a classic rock anthem full of swagger.

Don’t be alarmed by the title – there are no potatoes in “Potato Song”. Instead Minus One are bringing us a classic rock track, an ode to getting down – even when the object of your affections doesn’t feel the same way.

Lead singer Francois is in top form, as he rocks out on the chorus: “I just wanna dance with you/Get high on romance with you/I know I don’t stand a chance with you”.

And for anyone who felt that “Alter Ego” was perhaps a little too schlagertastic, “Potato Song” throws in a very satisfying guitar solo, a perfect excuse to play along on air guitar.

The group have released a lyric video, and “Potato Song (I Just Wanna Dance)” is now out on all digital platforms.

Minus One – “Potato Song (I Just Wanna Dance)”

Minus One – “Potato Song (I Just Wanna Dance)” lyrics

Hard rock, soft pop, country, reggae
Or heavy blues
A funky jazzy fusion
Anything that grooves

Some drum n bass
Would do you good
As long as there is music playing
I just wanna…

Dance with you
Get high on romance with you
I know I don’t stand a chance with you
I just wanna dance with you
From the moment I saw you

You get what you deserve
When you’re the one to choose
So careful what you wish for
Careful who you lose

Sticks and stones
Broke my bones
I don’t need anything
No, I just wanna…

Dance with you
Get high on romance with you
I know I don’t stand a chance with you
I just wanna dance with you
From the moment I saw you

Some things are never meant to be, no
Some things are meant to happen again

Dance with you
Get high on romance with you
I don’t stand a chance with you
Just wanna dance with you
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

From the moment I saw you
Oh, from the moment I saw you
From the moment I saw you
Just wanna… rock!

I like the music but the lyrics are terrible.
Rhyming “dance”, “romance” and “chance” is unforgivable. So many crap songs use these rhymes.
Epic fail.

MFW Eurovision fans can’t tell the difference between this track and the Phil-Collins-Lite styro-crap they took to Eurovision.

That was product. This is music. Good for them.
