Episode: Dance with Somebody

I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) by Whitney Houston is featured in Dance with Somebody, the seventeenth episode of Season Three. It is sung by Brittany and Santana.

As part of the Glee Club assignment is to sing Whitney Houston songs, Brittany and Santana perform this. Brittany starts off singing in the choir room with the New Directions, where Santana joins her. It then moves towards the auditorium, where they both sing to each other and dance with the Cheerios. It is clear that this performance affects Quinn, as she is disheartened at the fact that she can't get up and dance, due to her being in a wheelchair. After the performance Brittany tells her that she still can dance in her dreams - and also fly and breathe fire.

Brittany:
I wanna dance!

Clocks strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase all my blues away
I've done alright up 'til now
Its the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls my lonely heart calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

I've been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need a woman who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Santana with the Cheerios:
Somebody who,
Somebody who

Santana:
Somebody who loves me, yeah

Santana with the Cheerios:
Somebody who,
Somebody who

Santana:
To hold me in her arms
Oh!

Brittany:
I need a woman who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last

Brittany and Santana:
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls...

Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Santana (Cheerios):
Oooh, oooh (Dance)
Come on baby, hahahaha (Dance)

Brittany (Cheerios):
Wooh!
Yeah! (Dance)

Santana:
Now get with this, hahahaha
Woah woah woah, yeah!

Brittany and Santana (Cheerios):
Don't you wanna dance (Dance)

Santana:
With me baby?

Brittany and Santana (Cheerios):
Don't you wanna dance (Dance)

Santana:
With me girl?

Brittany and Santana (Cheerios):
Hey, don't you wanna dance (Dance)

Santana:
With me baby?

Brittany and Santana (Cheerios):
With somebody who loves me.

Don't you wanna dance say you wanna dance
Don't you wanna dance? (Dance)
Don't you wanna dance say you wanna dance
Don't you wanna dance? (Dance)
Don't you wanna dance

Santana (Cheerios):
Say you wanna dance!
Uh huh! (Dance)

Brittany and Santana:
With somebody who loves me.

Trivia

  • Some lyrics are changed:
    • To accommodate Brittany and Santana's relationship, the lyrics are subtly altered, replacing 'his' with 'her', 'man' with 'woman', etc. 
    • The line "my loneliness calls" was replaced by "my lonely heart calls."
  • This song is the first (and only) duet sung by Brittany and Santana in Season Three, but is not their first time singing together. They also sang together in Run the World (Girls), though Santana merely sang back-up for Brittany then.
  • The outfits Santana and Brittany wear in the auditorium are the same outfits Whitney Houston wore in her music video to How Will I Know, which Glee also covered earlier in that episode.
