I just bet...
...that the '20 Dance Favourites' are just variations on Bird Dance. Haha.*
According to wiki, "In 1982, polka-loving cover band "The Emeralds", from Edmonton Alberta Canada, recorded a polka-inspired version of the song, released by K-Tel records. The album "Bird Dance" went double-platinum in Canada, and gold in Australia. The song also contributed to the success of multiple gold albums for the Emeralds in 1983 and 1984. The song went on to further fame when it was used in two movies: Sam Raimi's cult classic Crime Wave, and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius."
*Yeah, I guess that's a giveaway that I haven't listened to it yet. ;) But come on, can you blame me?
