Count In: 32 counts from when beat kicks in, begin on vocals Approx 105 bpm

Notes: On Wall 9 the music goes slightly off phrase but I didn’t feel the need for a Restart so close to the end of the dance. Continue dancing, the steps STILL hit the music throughout, it is just on a different phrasing to the lyrics.
